“My son was born with webbing of his middle, ring, and pinky finger on both hands. My childhood pediatrician recommended I contact Dr. Ratnerfor a consultation regarding surgery to correct the webbing. As a first time mom, I can't begin to explain how nervous I felt about having my 10 month old baby having what I consider to be a major surgery at such a young age. The doctor's and nursing staff at the Hand and Upper Extremity Center were phenomenal!! Not only did they help to keep this nervous wreck mommy at ease, but the work Dr. Ratner did on my son's fingers far exceeded our expectation. It's been almost a year since his first surgery and I am contacting you today to thank each and every person who was involved with his syndactyly correction, especially Dr. Ratner!!! His scarring is so minimal you barely notice and he has full movement in each of his little fingers! We are so appreciative of you all! I couldnt recommend a better specialist!”

“Our daughter Hannah has been a patient of Dr. Peljovich for almost 16 years. She saw him for the first time shortly after her birth. I remember sitting in the exam room with Hannah in my arms as a newborn, being terrified of what was to come. Dr. Peljovich being a parent, understood my anxiety and was reassuring in everything he explained to us. He completed 3 surgical procedures on her hands and continued to follow her progress and growth for many years. Last summer, Dr. Peljovich told Hannah that she was pretty much done and unless she wanted him to tweak something, she had officially graduated. It was a joyous and sad appointment all at the same time. Our daughter is amazingly functional and happy, and we never regretted our decision to allow Dr. Peljovich treat her. He will always hold a very special place in our hearts as a surgeon and a great man.”
