Hi All,

I'm looking for a recommendations for a hand surgeon in the Boston area who is familiar with climbing injuries. I've done "something" to my middle finger and would love to have a surgeon who has experience with climbing injuries take a look at it.

Dr. Brunelli in Framingham operated on my hand last year. Same deal - pulley slip on the middle finger due to climbing.

He rocked. Very talented and understanding of the needs of climbers. Plus he hooked me up with a cool splint (see pic). :-)
