Dr. J. Michael Bennett – Practice Introduction

Dr. J. Michael Bennett also treats certain wrist and hand injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome, distal radius fractures (broken wrist), trigger finger and metacarpal fractures of the hand.  He specializes in using the endoscopic approach to carpal tunnel syndrome, when appropriate for the patient, which means that the carpal tunnel surgery consists of two small incisions instead of a longer incision across the middle of the palm of the hand.

Here’s the video introduction to Dr. J. Michael Bennett’s orthopedics and sports medicine practice.

This is a transcript of the video:

Dr. J. Michael Bennett: My name is Jay Michael Bennett, I’m a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. I specialize in minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow and knee. I am fellowship-trained and I also have my certificate and added qualification in sports medicine. Our goal and objective is to get patients back to their daily activities and their active lifestyles.

Wayne: My name’s Wayne Hall and I’m Jay Bennett’s patient. The injury affected me terribly. I had problems sleeping at night. His procedures and what he did to my shoulder in the surgery got me back so fast, I was back working the second day.

Jesse Vargas: One the things that makes Dr. Bennett so great is his bedside manner with his patients. He answers any questions you have, he simplifies things for you, just really makes sure you leave understanding what’s going on.

Dr. Bennett: Communication and education is first with the patients. We really take pride in making sure that all of our patients fully understand their problem and their solution.

Wayne: My quality of life is so much better, work, playing with my kid, just everything, since I’ve had the surgery with Jay, and I’m only four weeks out! I feel so much better.

Jesse Vargas: One the things that makes Dr. Bennett so great is his bedside manner with his patients. He answers any questions you have, he simplifies things for you, just really makes sure you leave understanding what’s going on.

Dr. Bennett: Communication and education is first with the patients. We really take pride in making sure that all of our patients fully understand their problem and their solution.

Jesse Vargas: I’d say Dr. Bennett’s practice is different because everybody here is very personable and they’re just very helpful and made the process a lot easier than I think it would have been if it would have been another doctor.

Dr. J. Michael Bennett: Watching that progression from the day they walk through our doors to the day they leave and seeing the smile on their face and the fact that they’re pain free and back to their sports, that’s definitely the most rewarding part of my job.
