“The care provided to my patients at Midwest Hand Surgery (MHS) has been second to none. Even the most complex clinical cases have had outcomes that often exceed expectations. The physicians demonstrate superior clinical and surgical skills and collectively provide compassion and care at its highest standard. Possibly most importantly, I've been so impressed with their humility and down-to-earth nature providing wonderful care for each and every patient I've referred to MHS. Lastly, I can think of no greater endorsement than entrusting in MHS the treatment of my wife, daughter, and most recently my sister!”

“Entrusting the care of my patients to another physician is one of the most important decisions that I make, and I have found Midwest Hand Surgery to be a group of outstanding clinicians. Their staff is great in scheduling patients quickly and the surgeons do exceptional work. On top of the excellent outcomes, my patients are pleased with the time spent on explaining the plan of care and surgical procedure and the close attention to comfort and healing on follow-up. Every patient that I have referred to Midwest Hand Surgery has had a great experience and top-notch care.”

“Dr. Ellis and the MHS team has done an excellent job from the beginning in fighting for me to have the thumb functionality I have today. I appreciated the honesty, frankness, and personal care I received from the MHS team. Through my whole experience, I felt like they had my best interests in mind. They were honest and open with me every step of the way and presented all the available options along the way so I never felt in the dark or worried about what might happen next. I was treated as if I was a family member, and that's really all you can ask for. I am blessed beyond belief in my experience with Midwest Hand Surgery.”
