Submit Your Testimonial About the Experience How was your overall experience?: Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent Comments: Excellent surgeon. Repaired a Colles fracture of the wrist. 10 days after surgery he removed the splint and said wearing the brace was optional but better to wear it less. I feel this really was a help toward my recovery, in regaining flexibility and strength in my wrist. The entire experience was A+. Could not be happier.
