Houston, Texas (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Dr. Nicholas Fiore of Cy-Fair Hand and Wrist Surgical Associates, P.A. announces that he has expanded his practice with a new location in Memorial City. Houston hand surgery candidates can now visit with the surgeon at a location that is most convenient for them.
As a Houston hand specialist, Dr. Fiore is double-board certified by the American Board of Surgery in both surgery and hand surgery. His interest in this niche field began after fracturing his own wrist when wrestling for the Duke University Blue Devils during his undergraduate studies. Forced to undergo surgery himself, he recognized the profound impact a hand injury can have on a person’s life. Some of his specialties include endoscopic carpal tunnel, fractures, and nerve injuries.
"I am looking forward to meeting and working with new patients," says Dr. Fiore. "With a new location, it makes it easier and more convenient for my patients to meet with my team."
Among Dr. Fiore's skills, he specializes in working with Houston carpal tunnel patients. Dr. Fiore works with patients experiencing mild, moderate, and severe symptoms. Most early carpal tunnel syndrome sufferers can find relief with night splints. Behavioral changes can also help reduce pain and damage. Moderate carpal tunnel can be treated with oral or injectable steroids. If these methods are unsuccessful, surgical options include open carpal tunnel release surgery and minimally invasive endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery.
As a practice, Cy-Fair Hand and Wrist Surgical Associates works with a broad range of patients including children, adults, and the elderly. They also work hard to stay as flexible and accommodating as possible. If it is better for a patient's schedule, Dr. Fiore can meet during early office hours. Dr. Fiore also hopes that with the addition of a new office, he will have greater flexibility to meet with patients at a time most convenient for them. The practice is also “in-network” for many insurance coverage plans. At the time of the first appointment, the office staff will discuss an insurance plan with the patient to see if he/she is covered for consultations, treatments, and potential surgical procedures. Dr. Fiore's staff can also discuss payment plans if a patient is currently not covered by insurance.
