Dallas Hand Doctor Pedro Loredo Gives Away Hand Surgery to Woman in Need

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Dr. Pedro Loredo, a surgeon at Renova Hand and Foot Centers, was recognized by North Texas news station KTXD 47 for his generosity toward a Dallas citizen disabled by debilitating hand pain. Esther Gonzales suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition that made it difficult for her to perform at work, but despite her inability to pay for her surgery, Dr. Loredo insisted on treating Gonzales completely free of charge.

A cashier at a local supermarket, Esther Gonzales began experiencing severe pain and discomfort in her hands and fingers. "I live every day with pain," Gonzales explained prior to surgery. "I can't work; I can't do anything because my hand is so bad." Even though others urged Gonzales to see a hand specialist, she was concerned that her lack of health insurance would prevent her from receiving the treatment she needed. Nevertheless, Gonzales began to research treatment options and discovered the website for the Dallas branch of Renova Hand and Foot Centers.

Gonzales was soon diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, a common hand condition that causes persistent pain and tingling in the hand and wrist. The condition causes more missed work days than any other injury -- up to 30 days per year per affected person -- and can cause permanent nerve damage if left untreated. In the case of Gonzales, her pain was aggravated by the movements she was required to perform at her job.

Dr. Loredo was eager to help Gonzales and offered to treat her at no charge. "We want to give back to the community so we give one monthly surgery to charity for someone that's very deserving, that needs it," Dr. Loredo told The Texas Daily. Dr. Loredo went on to say that giving back to the community was part of his Texas upbringing and is now integral to his work as a doctor. "I'm very lucky that I can do this for another person," he said.

To treat Gonzales' carpal tunnel syndrome, Dr. Loredo performed a new micro-invasive surgery called AccuCision™. The AccuCision™ procedure was developed by doctors at Renova Hand and Foot Centers, who remain the exclusive providers of this advanced hand surgery. "The incisions we use are as small as a grain of rice," Dr. Loredo explained. "We use a clear cannula so that we can see the whole anatomy of the hand." The advanced ClearView 360™ technology of AccuCision™ allows doctors to perform carpal tunnel release safely and effectively without the use of a large incision while protecting surrounding tissues and nerves. Since no stitches are required, recovery time is brief, lasting about one week. According to Dr. Loredo, his patients have seen "huge results" from the procedure.

Following surgery, Gonzales quickly began to experience the results of her treatment. "It's like a miracle," Gonzales remarked. "I don't know who picked me [to receive] this wonderful gift...I can't believe it." Dr. Loredo and rest of the staff at Renova look forward to helping more patients like Gonzales in the future.

With offices across the country, Renova Hand and Foot features fellowship-trained hand, foot and microvascular surgeons specializing in all hand, wrist, and foot conditions. Renova is the exclusive provider of the AccuCision™ Procedure, the most advanced treatment for entrapped nerves on the market. For more information visit painfreehands.com or freemyfeet.com.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring.
