Dr. Alijani performed Carpel Tunnel and Trigger Finger surgery on both my hands. He properly diagnosed my issues and surgically resolved the numbness I was experiencing. I highly recommend Dr. Alijani and his team. They are excellent to work with!

Dr. Alijani is a terrific doctor who really cares. I had severe De Quervains (mom thumb) after having my baby along with a ganglion cyst that I’ve had for decades. Dr. Aljani released my tendon and removed my cyst two weeks ago. My pain is gone and the incision looks great! I’m thankful for him and the compassion he had during and after my surgery. Highly recommend!
