The Wide Awake Technique
Hand surgery is not heart surgery, so why go through the same amount of hassle? Instead, why not experience safer, less painful, more convenient and less costly hand surgical care?
Our hand specialists utilize a revolutionary technique that allows surgery to be performed in the office or outpatient surgery center without the use of anesthesia. Want to have minimal to no pain when your procedure is finished? Want to walk out of the procedure room instead of being wheeled out? Want to discuss your plan of care directly with the surgeon instead of relying on secondhand information from others after surgery? Call our office today at 832-232-HAND (4263) to meet with one of our hand specialists and see if this method is right for you!
