Hand and Wrist Patient Stories

With the Henry Ford Hand and Wrist program we don’t just treat disease or injury. We treat people. Our patients’ lives are touched by the compassion, dedication, and expertise of our staff in thousands of different ways every day, whether it's a lifesaving treatment or simply a reassuring smile and kind word. Every patient’s story is unique. We are grateful for those who allow us to share their stories here:
