“Thank you Dr. Puckett! My left thumb developed what Dr. Puckett told me was trigger finger or trigger thumb. It would lock closed and I would have to use my other hand to open it most of the time. It was very painful. Dr. Puckett saw me on a Wednesday and made time in his Thursday schedule for surgery on my thumb to release the thumb. The surgery was about 20 minutes long and not at all painful. I was released in about 45 minutes and drove 150 miles home. The recovery was not painful either. I would highly recommend Dr. Puckett and his team for anyone with hand problems as well as elbow problems.” Michelle T.
