It was so bad in both hands that it was waking me up at night and I could barely get through a musical piece without pain and numbing. I was recommended to go see Dr Izadi and boy am I glad I did. One week after the operation, I was back playing the piano again like I was 20 years old. It feels great to be pain free. Thank you Dr. Izadi and your great staff for giving me a second wind in my music.

The pain in my hands was so intense that it would wake me up several times in the night. I knew it was time to look into carpel tunnel surgery. I am so glad I found Dr. Izadi! Everything was clearly explained to me and all my questions were answered before each surgery. His nursing staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. I was fully awake during the surgeries and very comfortable. I am happy to say that today my hands feel like new. There is no numbness or tingling and no more sleepless nights. I would highly recommend Dr. Izadi to anyone. Thank you so much!

After suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome for over 20 years, an article in the Methodist magazine, The Meaning of Care (Spring 2012) changed my life. It featured a story about Dr. Kayvon Izadi, at Methodist Physicians Clinic Orthopedics, performing carpal tunnel release surgery without anesthesia and completed in under one hour. I had been waiting a long time for someone to develop this procedure without anesthesia and here it was! It actually took me over a year to contact their office as I was caring for my father, who was a cancer patient, but that article stayed on my desk just waiting for its turn. This fall I saw Dr. Izadi and he confirmed I needed surgery for my now moderate carpal tunnel and both hands were completed within four weeks. No more wearing splints, tingling or pain! And the only medication I needed after the surgery was over the counter pain medication. What a change from my friends’ surgeries – they couldn’t believe that I was out to dinner with my husband two days after surgery with only a small bandage covering the incision. No post surgical splints; no ugly incisions or staples; no anesthesia or hospital stay. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Izadi, his staff and his surgical team. Thank you!

I had carpal tunnel surgery 2 wks ago. My left hand was numb, I waited too long. Dr Izadi asked if he could try something new, I said yes. He did the surgery, then put dissolvable stitches inside and glued the incision. I had normal restrictions, but was able to get it wet after 2 days. I had tenderness, but on the 2 week mark, my hand was back to what is supposed to be normal. A friend of mine had the same surgery done by Dr. Izadi at the first of the year, when I told her mine had been glued and how wonderful it was, her comment was I wish I would have had it done that way. I will need surgery on my right hand, I will not wait as long as I did with my left and Dr. Izadi will be the surgeon. I had a wonderful experience and wish I would have done it sooner. 🙂

I had the great fortune of being referred to Dr. Izadi for treatment of my carpal tunnel in February 2012. I had worn splints at night for 12+ years. The symptoms progressed to the point the numbness was constant and I was losing my grip regularly. I even started wearing the splint on my right hand during the day. February 2012 Dr. Izadi performed the procedure on my right hand. I did not need to be put under as the procedure was done with a local anesthetic. This allowed me to drive myself to the procedure. Recovery time was great. I was back to work the next day and everything healed fantastically. March 2012 Dr. Izadi performed the same procedure on my left hand. My recovery was just as fast and I have had no problems with my left hand either. I am an avid golfer and am happy to say I am playing golf better than I ever had. I continually refer friends and family who are suffering with carpal tunnel to Dr. Izadi as he and his staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. If you are contemplating surgery, Dr. Izadi is definitely the surgeon you want operating on your hands.

Dr. Izadi…the arm just keeps getting better and better. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results so far and cannot thank you enough for your help. I’ve had a fair number of surgeries in my day and want you to know that the care provided by you and your team was by far some of the best care I’ve ever received.  Everyone, yourself included of course, was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and very helpful.  I’m not sure you can make surgery enjoyable but you got close, very close.

Dr Izadi did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. I am very pleased with the results. Just wished I would have had him do it sooner!! My hands no longer fall asleep while driving, I’m able to quilt without my hand hurting and having to stop every 5-10 minutes for my hand to wake up and stop tingling. I recommend Dr Izadi and his team, they are just great.

After more than a decade of wearing wrist braces every night and tolerating my carpal tunnel symptoms, I visited Dr. Izadi for a consultation. As a result, Dr. Izadi performed carpal tunnel release surgery on both my wrists within a six week span. That was just over a year ago and here I am totally free of all carpal tunnel symptoms. I can’t thank Dr. Izadi enough. Well, here let me try: thank you, thank you, thank you! This was also my first experience with any kind of surgery and I was shocked at how effortless Dr. Izadi made the whole process seem–he is truly a master of the art of hand surgery and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Izadi.

Thank you so much for fixing my carpal tunnel during the 8th month of my pregnancy. I thought I would share with you the cause of it! We love him so much! Thank you again for making it possible for me to enjoy my little love.
