Our Patients Love Dr. Pinsky!
Hi Dr. Pinsky! Just wanted to say thank you so much for my procedure. It’s life-changing. My family loves it! I love the results already and I can’t wait to see the changes as time goes. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable throughout this process, answering all my questions and getting on the phone with me when I was a nervous wreck! Thank you.
Hi Dr. Pinsky, Just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am going through with custom finger prosthetics! I went home for the summer because I am from Grand Rapids Michigan, and I found a clinic where I had a consultation and am now going through with the process of getting them made. I just wanted to thank you for your help a few months ago in giving me options to think about. I never thought I would actually go through with it or even decide to do it, but I did and I’m excited to continue the process. My parents were thrilled to hear what silicone finger prosthetics were all about too because as a baby there weren’t those options available as technology had not been as advanced as it is now. Thanks again!
In June 2016, Dr. Pinsky performed major surgery on my right hand. I had ruptured my right ring and small finger extensor tendons. Those fingers were rendered motionless as a result. During a complicated and intricate surgical procedure, Dr. Pinsky transferred tendons from unaffected fingers on that hand to the immobile ones in order for my ring and pinky fingers to regain mobility. It has been three months since the surgery. I have regained dexterity in both fingers. Due to Dr. Pinsky’s expertise and surgical precision, I now have a fully functional hand. I am truly grateful to Dr. Pinsky for the successful outcome of my surgery. Besides his surgical talents, Dr. Pinsky was compassionate, attentive and encouraging. He is a valuable asset to the medical profession.
