    How was your appointment with Dr. Higgins?

    Jun 04, 2022
    Dr Higgins performed a total proximal carpectomy on my left wrist. My wrist was swollen, painful, & I was losing my wrist mobility. I am 2 years out from surgery & am pain and swelling free. I am an RN able to keep working and have my fine motor movement back. I can also type again! Dr Higgins has a great bedside manner & explains everything so that any lay person can understand. I highly recommend him for any hand or wrist injury.
