NEW YORK CITY — Dr. Steven Beldner is well aware of what the fallout from the Fourth of July may bring.
“It’s amazing how often this occurs. Fourth of July is a very busy time for a hand surgeon,” he said, referring to the prevalence of fireworks mishaps.
Beldner is one the foremost hand surgeons in the city who has worked on former NFL as well as NHL players. If there is one thing he can put his finger on when it comes to dealing with high-caliber athletes, it is the following: “Most professional athletes that I have worked with before have a tremendous will to continue and to return back to the level they were before.”
