Dr. Goetz has improved the quality of my life in ways that are difficult to quantify. When I came to him about my hand, I was already in a wheelchair, just learning to walk again, with contractures in both shoulders that prevented me from raising my arms. My (dominant) right wrist was pronated so the back of my hand faced my belly, and was flexed as far as it could go. The DIPs and PIPs were flexed so tightly that I couldn't even wedge a pencil in, and the MCPs were hyperextended. It qas entirely non-functional and caused me a great deal of discomfort. I was forced, not only to use only one hand, but also to learn to use my non-dominant hand for everything. Dr. Goetz performed a 5 1/2 hour surgery that gave me a wealth of independence and relief I didn't have before. He straightened the fingers and turned my wrist to a more functional position. A couple years later, he went back and tweaked the fingers. In a feq months, he'll do one more bit of tweaking, and I have absolute faith in him! My hand is not perfect, and never will be, but it's perfect to me. I am able to do so make more things than I would have, and I am no longer suffering from such discomfort. He took the time to really assess my needs, then took the chance that many other surgeons might not have. If it was appropriate I would throw my arms around him and kiss him! As a side note: Dr. Goetz is extremely busy. He is also a cut-through-the-crap, get to business, kind of guy. Lastly, he is often teaching or collaborating with other doctors at the same time. As a result, to some, he may come off as abrupt or not inclusive. However, he is an incredibly talented surgeon, knowledgeable orthopaedist, and will take the time to discuss your questions and concerns and options
