var122: did you have your treatment/surgery done at Mayo Eau Claire, or Roch? I live in NE WI and go to Roch, with my wife, a Mayo Scottsdale retiree, for chronic problems we have. Is a trip to Eau Claire worthwhile for evaluation and possible surgery? I have appt. with hand clinic in Roch end of May, but EC is a shorter drive and I wonder about the jhand surgery there. TIA.

Rochester by Dr. Elhassan. I work at Mayo Eau Claire.
At the time of my eval in Oct. 2017, Mayo EC didn't offer the CMC Pyrocarbon joint replacement. I've heard that may have changed ­čÖé Best to call hand ortho in EC & inquire…like I said, they may now offer it. Otherwise, I am very pleases with Dr. Elhassan & would recommend him.

Thanks. I think I'll stick with Roch.

I would like to find a good surgeon in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa AZ area. I was scheduled for this surgery in Sonoma County (CA) and decided against it at the time. Now I realize I need it. I just moved to AZ and have no idea who to go to. Any help would be very much appreciated.
