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.
