Carpal Tunnel - Linda Miller - March 2013
I had carpel tunnel surgery 2 wks ago. My left hand was numb, I waited too long. Dr Izadi asked if he could try something new, I said yes. He did the surgery, then put dissolveable stitches inside and glued the incision. I had normal restrictions, but was able to get it wet after 2 days. I had tenderness, but on the 2 week mark, my hand was back to what is supposed to be normal. A friend of mine had the same surgery done by Dr. Izadi at the first of the year, when I told her mine had been glued and how wonderful it was, her comment was I wish I would have had it done that way. I will need surgery on my right hand, I will not wait as long as I did with my left and Dr. Izadi will be the surgeon. I had a woderful experience and wish I would have done it sooner. :)
Rotator Cuff Tear - Jeff Eckersley - February 2013
I was in a motorcycle accident on the interstate in August of 2012. I had a complete tear of rotator cuff as well as a complete tear of my bicep muscle. I thought I might not be able to return to work as a correction officer. Dr. Izadi repaired both. My incision looks great. Now 6 months later I feel no pain, like the accident never happened. Dr. Izadi explained everything and took the time to answer all of my questions. If I ever need another surgery I will go back to Dr. Izadi. Excellent staff and a excellent job done! Thank you for helping me!
Thumb Arthritis - Scott Wendel - January 2013
I suffered for almost two years with arthritic pain in my left thumb. I tried a brace. I tried injection. Neither gave me relief. So I opted to undergo surgery with Dr. Izadi because of my intense trust in him as not only a doctor but as a medical professional who listens and cares. I had the surgery four months ago (August 2012), and I would do it again in a heartbeat. If in the future I need the same procedure on my right thumb, I wouldn't hesitate to have Dr. Izadi for the same procedure. If you're at the point where you can't button a button or zip up a zipper and are tired of the 24/7 chronic pain, you need to make an appointment.
Thumb Arthritis - Sarah Wurtz - January 2013
I had terrible pain in hand and thumb due to arthritis for many years. I finally had my thumb surgery on Aug 16, 2012. Best thing I ever did for myself! Now, I am able to help calving, drive semis, tractors and pickups without being in terrible pain. Although my hand often gets sore, it does not stop me from doing my work and daily chores. Thank you Dr. Izadi!
Glomus Tumor - Jane Readman - October 2012
First of all I want to say that Dr. Izadi is a great and caring doctor. I suffered with pain in my little finger for four years, going from doctor to doctor. They all said nothing was wrong until finally I was sent to Dr. Izadi who knew right away that it was a glomus tumor. He did an MRI and there it was. I had local anesthesia and everyone in the sugery room was so kind and told me everything they were doing. I felt very safe and so thankful to get this finger fixed. It has healed very well . Thank you so much Dr. Izadi!
Carpal Tunnel - Heather Hagenau - July 2012
I had the great fortune of being referred to Dr. Izadi for treatment of my carpal tunnel in February 2012. I had worn splints at night for 12+ years. The symptoms progressed to the point the numbness was constant and I was losing my grip regularly. I even started wearing the splint on my right hand during the day. February 2012 Dr. Izadi performed the procedure on my right hand. I did not need to be put under as the procedure was done with a local anesthetic. This allowed me to drive myself to the procedure. Recovery time was great. I was back to work the next day and everything healed fantastically. March 2012 Dr. Izadi performed the same procedure on my left hand. My recovery was just as fast and I have had no problems with my left hand either. I am an avid golfer and am happy to say I am playing golf better than I ever had. I continually refer friends and family who are suffering with carpel tunnel to Dr. Izadi as he and his staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. If you are contemplating surgery, Dr. Izadi is definatley the surgeon you want operating on your hands.
Carpal Tunnel - Bob Wilczewski II - June 2012
Dr. Izadi...the arm just keeps getting better and better. I'm absolutely thrilled with the results so far and cannot thank you enough for your help. I've had a fair number of surgeries in my day and want you to know that the care provided by you and your team was by far some of the best care I've ever received. Everyone, yourself included of course, was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I'm not sure you can make surgery enjoyable but you got close, very close.
Carpal Tunnel - Joyce Book - May 2012
Dr Izadi did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. I am very pleased with the results. Just wished I would have had him do it sooner!! My hands no longer fall asleep while driving, I'm able to quilt without my hand hurting and having to stop every 5-10 minutes for my hand to wake up and stop tingling. I recommend Dr Izadi and his team, they are just great.
Elbow Fracture Dislocation - Sharon Skinner - April 2012
While setting up for a quilt show, I tripped and took a terrible fall. In the emergency room at Methodist Women's Hospital, I was referred to Dr. Izadi. My X-rays revealed a severe injury...dislocated elbow, 3 forearm breaks, and a broken thumb....major hurt! He scheduled surgery immediately. His plan was that I would be able to touch my face again. After the surgery and lots of P.T., I am able to do most activities with my arm and hand. He gave me back my "normal life"!!! Thank you Dr. Izadi. His skills and compassion are a 10. Always asks "do you have anymore questions". I have and would recommend him to others. I have great confidence in being in his care.
Carpal Tunnel - Shelley Bishop - January 2012
After more than a decade of wearing wrist braces every night and tolerating my carpal tunnel symptoms, I visited Dr. Izadi for a consultation. As a result, Dr. Izadi performed carpal tunnel release surgery on both my wrists within a six week span. That was just over a year ago and here I am totally free of all carpal tunnel symptoms. I can't thank Dr. Izadi enough. Well, here let me try: thank you, thank you, thank you! This was also my first experience with any kind of surgery and I was shocked at how effortless Dr. Izadi made the whole process seem--he is truly a master of the art of hand surgery and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Izadi.
Dupuytrens Disease - Dan Koziol - January 2012
I was refered to Dr. Izadi by my physician because my left pinky finger had a bump just above the palm of my hand. After Dr. Izadi gave it a look, he said it was called Dupuytren’s disease. My finger was curling inward toward my palm and wouldn't straighten out. He discussed the options with me very throughly. Together we decided that surgery was my best bet to repair the finger. Surgery only took 45 minutes and I had very little pain if not any. After some therpy (two days a week for four weeks) my finger is straight and working just fine. Dr Izadi did a remarkable job and would recommend him for any surgery. Nice job Doc!!!!
Rotator Cuff Tear - Dale Polak - January 2012
It has almost been 1-year since my rotator cuff repair surgery (February 22nd 2011). Surgery was the best thing I decided to do and it was a great success. I had very little pain, the pain was worse during PT. If you follow the PT's advice you will not even know you had a problem in the first place. I am back to bowling, golfing, and building with no pain or restrictions. Thank you for the great job you did Dr. Izadi.
de Quervains Tendonitis - Nancy Paulsen - January 2012
I had tendonitis and Dr. Izadi did a fantastic job repairing years and years of wear and tear so that I could once again enjoy all the things I love to do, like quilting and getting on the computer, and working around the house. He was very professional and used humor and compassion when doing my surgery. I highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of surgery. Thank you Dr. Izadi for fixing my wrist.
Pregnancy Induced Carpal Tunnel - Rachel Beaudoin - December, 2011
Ganglion Cyst - Dallas Morrison - October, 2011
I was referred to Dr. Izadi by my primary care physician for what he believed was a Ganglion Cyst (my primary Dr. also had this and was treated by Dr. Izadi) Dr. Izadi was able to get me in to see him the very next day and I had surgery the day after that. I was very reluctant to have surgery at first do to my job. I'm a UPS driver and I figured having wrist surgery would keep out of work for months. Dr. Izadi explained I would be back to work in 10 days with no restrictions. The surgery and recovery went great. I had no pain at all and was only in a splint for two days. I was back to work in 10 days and have absolutely no pain or loss of motion in my wrist. I can't recommend Dr. Izadi enough. He was the friendliest, most professional Dr. I've ever had. Thank you Dr. Izadi & staff.
Meghan and Troy A. - June 2011
Hello. My name is Meghan A. My husband, Troy, and I are ranchers in south central Nebraska. I am going to share with you our amazing experience with Dr. Izadi. Our story began in late January 2010. Troy cut his hand on an auger as he was welding on a feed mixer, a piece of farming machinery used to deliver feed to our cattle.
We decided to look for a hand specialist to repair Troy’s finger. We found Dr. Izadi by word of mouth and he came highly recommended. We live 3 hours from Omaha, but decided it would be well worth the trip to visit with him regarding Troy’s injury. From the moment we stepped into the office we felt a sense of peace and caring. The receptionist greeted us in a friendly manner, which put us at ease in this new setting. When the young lady came to get Troy, I asked her if it was alright for me to come in with him. She assured us it was perfectly alright, and she was so nice and pleasant as she placed us in the room.
