If you do not have insurance and have one of these hand or wrist conditions, you may be eligible for Kettering Health’s Hand Day Dayton:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Trigger finger
- Mucous cysts
- Ganglion cysts
“We are proud to host Hand Day, making it easier for people to get these much-needed surgeries that will have such a positive impact on their lives,” said Dr. H. Brent Bamberger, hand and elbow surgeon with Kettering Health. “Performing these surgeries allows us to live our mission and ultimately help those in our community achieve their best health.”
Patricia Bachmann runs her own bakery in Preble County. She underwent successful surgery during Hand Day 2020 and credits the program with her successful business.
“I wouldn’t have been able to have a job if I didn’t have the surgery,” said Patricia Bachmann. “The 20-minute surgery change my life for eternity and saved me years of worry.”
