About

Bio

I was educated at Yale, Johns Hopkins, Miami and Louisville. I serve as a voluntary professor of surgery and limit my practice to reconstructive problems. I also serve on the editorial board of four peer-reviewed surgery journals I was the first hand specialist in South Florida to be recertified twice.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 34-year-old female asked:
Dr. M Felix Freshwater
48 years experience Hand Surgery
Not enough info: Which fingers? What time of day? How often? Why do you write CTS in other hand? How is this different from other hand?
A 18-year-old female asked:
Dr. M Felix Freshwater
48 years experience Hand Surgery
Up to 9 months: Hands don't get sprained, joints do. From personal experience spraining joints it can take up to 9 months for every last bit of pain to disappear,
A 23-year-old female asked:
Dr. M Felix Freshwater
48 years experience Hand Surgery
Not enough info: Is the cut on the back or front? Can you move all the joints? Without further info, I can't tell. Go to an ED or UCC.
