“Thanks to Dr. Salem Samra, who specializes in minimally invasive carpal tunnel surgery, I was back to work styling hair one week after my procedure, which was crucial because I own the business. He even performed the same surgery on his dad, who is also a hand surgeon, so I trusted him completely.” -Michelle Carr, Aberdeen, N.J.
