Dr. Eisenhuth listened very well. Not just about the problem I am having with my hands but also about me—my preferences, fears, what I know and like to know, etc. He took time to answer the many questions I usually have. He is kind, respectful and extremely competent in his job. I cannot say enough good things about him.

Dr. Lincoski is a fantastic surgeon. His entire staff was also wonderful. They ALL were compassionate and very sensitive to my daughters needs. He set my mind at ease taking care of my 16 year old daughter in surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Lincoski and University Orthopedics. The entire staff was wonderful!!!!

I’ve had 2 recent hand surgeries by Dr. Singer and follow up care with Anthony Damin as well as PT with Mark Meyers, all from UOC. I can honestly say I have never had better care. From beginning to end, I was well informed of procedures, post-op care, and home therapy. I am back to 100% with no pain. These guys are AWESOME!

I received amazing care from my hand surgery to the physical therapy. Everyone was very helpful and they took great care of me. Would definitely come back if surgery is needed again.
