  1. I had Carpal tunnel syndrome for over 1 year. Mr Gheorghiu treated me with a single injection and a night splint and my symptoms are completely gone. I am so glad that I could avoid surgery. Thank you. DM

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  2. I suffered of shoulder pain for many years which became more debilitating. Mr Gheorghiu performed a subacromial decompression and a rotator cuff repair. My original pains have gone and recovery is going well. I will be contacting Mr Gheorghiu soon for my other shoulder which is getting worse

    Subacromial Impingement and Rotator Cuff repair

  3. I had two curled up fingers caused by Dupuytren's disease. Mr Gheorghiu injected Xiapex in both cords at the same time and I have fully straight fingers again.

    Dupuytren´s Disease

 Dupuytren´s contracture. Partial fasciectomy.
 Thank you so much for your great care. My     fingers can fully straighten again and the   scar is almost invisible. Thank you so much.
