Testimonials

Back to playing tennis

"In March, I ruptured a sagittal band in my right hand (my dominant hand of course) while playing tennis. It was an odd injury that baffled the ER at Emory/Saint Joseph’s Hospital. But, the attending physician did not hesitate to refer me to Dr. Tedman Vance for follow-up. Dr. Vance took one look at my hand and knew precisely what was wrong and how to fix it. The following day, he performed surgery to repair the damage. I am now back to playing tennis, working, and doing everything else I did prior to the injury. I would like to thank Dr. Vance and his staff for their personal and professional approach to my care. I am happy to be back!"
