What Patients are Saying...

"Dr. Besh gave me my hands back! After dealing with carpal tunnel since 1990, enduring years of hand therapy, stim, cortisone injections, and medications, I was finally referred to Dr. Besh for bi-lateral CTS surgery. After both surgeries and months of hand therapy, I am now 100% thanks to Dr. Besh and his staff."


"Dr. Besh is the absolute best. Having JUST been unwrapped, I could not be happier. My hand is beautiful 6 days post surgery. I wish I'd found him long ago. He is skilled, professional & kind. My family, friends and the world should know what he has done."


"I have had surgery on each wrist by Dr. Besh and you can barely see the scars and pain was significantly better after surgery. The staff is always very friendly, they remember my name every time (which is impressive considering how many people they see) and are always helpful. The doctors, the office staff and physical therapy staff are wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Besh and FORM."
