On June 4, 2016, Dr. Shankar Lakshman of Pasadena Surgeons performed hand surgery to relieve my osteoarthritis pain and weakness on my right thumb joint. The procedure called Arthroplasty was successful in relieving pain and after much research of alternate procedures, I felt this was less invasive and recovery was quicker. From the first consultation to the follow-up post surgery, Dr. Lakshman answered my questions and concerns with patience and professionalism, and was always available to meet with me. I highly recommend Dr. Lakshman and his office staff for their kindness and support. As a result of this experience, I am considering the same surgery for my left thumb joint.
