Recommendations for hand specialist

Recommended Posts

I took a bit of tumble off the bike on Sunday (or more a full face plant OTB, thank goodness for a full face helmet). I initially thought I walked away with just a few bruises and a sprained thumb, but a trip to the emergency room yesterday confirmed it was a torn ligament.

Any recommendations for a hand specialist in the Cape Town area? Preferably looking for someone operating outs of Constantiaberg, CT Mediclinic or Milnerton Medi...

+1 for Dr Wells. He fixed my hand after I rearranged my wrist violently,

 

But a torn ligament hardly seems to warrant going to a hand specialist? Your local orthopod can probably handle it.

 

It's my hand, I would rather go to someone overqualified than underqualified...  ^_^

Also at Vincent Pallotti, Dr Michael Solomons. The Cape hand Clinic is world class. Hands are tricky things and worth getting the best guy and team (physio etc.) to sort out. (Ask me, I've been there and done that more than once and my livelihood depends 100% on it.)

I used Steve Carter at Vincent Palotti. Very happy.

Or Dr Mike Solomons at the same clinic - was recommended to me.

 

I had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament - a real pest as it needs a rigid splint for 6 to 8 weeks.  If you have a rupture (complete tear) then surgery asap
