Jacqualine's Story:

Jacqualine has always been active and didn't let much slow her down. But after several years of hand and wrist pain that stopped her from being able to enjoy all those activities including cooking with her family, she finally made an appointment with her primary care provider at River Family Health Center. After an examination, Jacqualine was referred to Dr. Michael Zahn, Orthopedic Specialist, at River Hospital. 

Jacqualine had a classic case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and was quickly scheduled for a procedure in the Ambulatory Surgery Unit at River Hospital that would provide much needed relief. After a few weeks of recovery time, Jacqualine found herself back in the kitchen, cooking with her family, doing what she loved!
