I have put up with pain, discomfort, and numbness in my hands for years. It got to the point where I couldn’t sleep at night without waking up every hour or so to shake out and massage my hands to get feeling back into them, and I couldn’t drive for more than a few miles without my hands going numb. When I rode my bike I was constantly switching hands as one would go numb.
On October 10th I finally had carpal tunnel relief surgery to hopefully help the problem. Dr. David Jones Jr. with the Orthopedic Institute in Sioux Falls did the surgery. The first thing I noticed within a couple days of surgery is that I was sleeping through the night, and dreaming. Now that may sound strange but I haven’t really had dreams at night for years because I was constantly waking up and never able to reach a deep sleep where dreams happen. The next thing I noticed is that my hands were not going numb and were pain free when I would drive a car or hold my phone. On October 23, 13 days after surgery, I returned to the Orthopedic Institute to see Dr. Jones for a checkup and to get my stitches removed. I decided to make the the four-hour round trip on my bike. My hands never went numb one time and I had no pain! I could not be happier with the outcome! Why did I wait so long to get this done?!
First time seeing this doctor, but he was excellent!
You will not find a kinder, caring, knowledgeable doctor anywhere. We are so blessed to have Dr. Jones in this city. I would trust Dr. Jones with my life anytime.
Really took the time for ME. Very thorough in his evaluation and re-check.
I am very grateful for the care that I received. Everyone was pleasant, helpful, and caring, which was a blessing when you are in pain and waiting. It was great to work with an business like this. Thank you to all the staff.
I fell down on the ice and broke both of my wrists, one of which needed surgery. Dr. Jones, Jr. scheduled me the very same day as I consulted with him. In addition to his excellent surgical skills, he is very nice and compassionate. I am still healing and I expect an excellent outcome! He came very highly recommended and I was thrilled that I followed the advice!
Staff was great, first time visit and was in and out within an hour. Doctor was fantastic asking all the right questions and was able to diagnose the problem got me fixed and was on my way.
I was very impressed with Dr. Jones’ assessment of my situation and what needed to be done. He explained everything clearly so I would know exactly will be done to remedy/repair what’s wrong with my left hand. I have really been impressed with my care. I would definitely recommend to anyone needing hand surgery.
Dr. Jones and his staff are very knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend this physician!
Dr. Jones did carpal tunnel surgery on both hands and cortisone shots for my trigger fingers. Everyone was very professional and helpful, especially Dr. Jones and Emily. Thank you all!
I was treated wonderfully by the staff so it was a very pleasant appointment.
I had a wonderful experience at the Orthopedic Institute and with Dr. Jones. The staff was very friendly and easy to communicate with. I also was very impressed with how fast they were able to see me so I was not waiting a long period of time.
Dr. Jones was very helpful at explaining my condition and the appropriate treatment for it. Nothing but a good experience with Dr. Jones!
I had bilateral carpal tunnel surgery done by Dr. Jones. His staff, and that of SF Specialty Hospital, made the experience easy and efficient. Dr. Jones and his staff were so professional, all the whole listened to my concerns and needs. Within 6 days after surgery, I was able to play guitar for our church choir, which is amazing to me and not at all what I expected! I am grateful for this good care I received.
Great doctor! So professional, but still down to earth!! Love this doctor! Two surgeries by him and will only have him again! Does a beautiful job on my hand! Thanks Dr. Jones! Highly recommend Dr. Jones!
Great doctor and wonderful, caring staff! I highly recommend Dr. Jones.
I appreciate how Dr. Jones and his staff are careful to explain things and answer my questions.
Dr. Jones has a heart of gold. His is an advocate for his patients and the families of his patients. As new parents, it was so hard to trust someone with our child, but Dr. Jones was able to put us at ease and treated us with respect and kindness. He has been the calm voice in the storm for my family and we value him greatly!
I’ve been with Dr. Jones for a few years now. He’s knowledgeable, kind, and has an excellent bedside manner. I highly recommend him if you need any hand surgery!
Overall good experience. Ten weeks into a 12-week recovery—pleased with the results.
Dr. Jones and Emily were very thorough, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions.
I recently had surgery with Dr. Jones and Emily. I could not have asked for a better experience!
Dr. Jones was very knowledgeable and able to explain my hand problem in terms that I could understand the choices I had and the good and bad of all of them. I being diabetic he took into consideration of medications and what or why he believed would be the best procedure to use. Everyone in the waiting room had nothing but good to say about him and their experiences with him. Dr. Jones is a real asset to the orthopedic doctors in SD.
Dr. Jones and his team are very friendly and professional. I’ve had two surgeries done by Dr. Jones plus one more happening today. I trust Dr. Jones to do what’s right for me.
Very kind and compassionate as he visits with you. Very skillful in surgery.
Dr. Jones and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Jones is a good listener. He takes the time to explain exactly what treatment needs to be done and the expected results. I would recommend Dr. Jones.
Dr. Jones performed carpal tunnel surgery and it was amazing! Completely pain free. Everyone at OI is so nice and helpful! Sleeping through the night again is a huge bonus! Thanks to the OI team!

Dr. Jones and staff made and anxious person really comfortable. Everyone was so helpful, from the reception person to the discharge person! What a great team. Keep up the excellent work. Thanks for taking such good care of me.
I had surgery on both thumb joints this year. I am very satisfied with the results and recovery time. Dr. Jones and his staff were amazing. Very pleased!
Compassionate, always genuinely interested in your health issues. Friendly, welcoming mannerism and never in a hurry to get out the door. Very knowledgeable and fixed the problem(s).
I would like to say a great big thank you to Dr. Jones and staff for the wonderful care I had as a patient at Orthopedic Institute. Thumb is healing well.
Was one of the best doctors I’ve ever met! If we have anymore issues we wouldn’t go anywhere else. For sure is worth the 1.5 hour drive there.
Visit was personable, very helpful and left me with a clear understanding of what was going on with my hand.
Dr. Jones has gone above and beyond to help me with the pain in my hand. He is kind, caring and an expert in this field. I highly recommend him if you are having intense pain in your hand.
They got me in quickly, told me my problem and how they would fix it. Treatment was up to me. That’s the way I like to doctor. Great!
I appreciate that Dr. Jones is concerned and helpful, without pushing for treatment I am not ready to take on (surgery).
I highly recommend Dr. Jones to anyone having issues with their hands. I made an appointment with Dr. Jones based on a recommendation from someone who has the opportunity to work with him in the OR. I was told he was a very good surgeon and “one of the nicest people you will ever meet.” I was extremely happy with my first visit. He believes surgery should be a last resort and recommended a cortisone shot and splints to wear as needed. So far this has been very effective for me. Great results!
Dr. Jones is very kind and caring. He is very thorough and I will recommend him to anyone needing hand/elbow/wrist care.
Very competent and caring. Explained options clearly. Left feeling very comfortable and pleased with care received.
Not only have I been a patient and family member of patient, I have the privilege of working at OI. The physicians are amazing and truly care about each and everyone of their patients. My mom recently had surgery with both Dr. Jones and Dr. Geisinger and on both occasions she had excellent outcomes. The care she was given was amazing!

Loved the treatment my son received! Great doctor and physical therapist.
So grateful for Dr. Jones’ help with relieving the pain I was experiencing.
Very efficient and helpful and I really appreciate the urgency to fix my issue.
I have been very pleased with the professionalism and quality of care that Dr. Jones has demonstrated. He has been very compassionate and dedicated to making sure that I gain back as much function in my hands as possible. He was proactive in managing the pain after surgery by using a nerve block. This allowed me to focus on healing rather than focusing on the pain.
I have always been treated very well at Orthopedic Institute. Keep up the good work.
I was very pleased with Dr. Jones and his staff and my experience with surgery for my carpal tunnel and two trigger fingers.
Dr. Jones and his staff were wonderful! Dr. Jones clearly explained my diagnosis of carpal tunnel and made me feel very comfortable and confident about the surgery that was needed to resolve the extreme pain, numbness and tingling I’ve been suffering with in both of my hands. He was very patient, down-to-earth and so kind and easy to speak with. The surgery he performed was successful and I noticed immediate relief after I came out of recovery. I highly recommend Dr. David B. Jones, Jr.!
I appreciated the time and attention both Dr. Jones and his staff gave me as a new patient. They carefully explained my diagnosis and gave me great information regarding treatment. I would recommend Dr. Jones.
I think that anyone with pain in joints and afraid to go to the doctor should see Dr Jones. He is the most gentle and caring doctor. He was interested in my symptoms and how long I had been in pain and took care of it right away. I would recommend everyone needing some pain relief to see this Dr and he will either help you or send you where you need to go to get the help. He is amazing and I feel better everyday. Thank you, Dr. Jones.
Dr. Jones helped me so much with the carpal tunnel surgery that he performed. He also took care of the trigger finger at the same time. I appreciated the physical therapy that I had the PT clinic as well. They got me in tip top shape and back to work painlessly.
Excellent in all areas of my experience.
Dr. Jones and his staff were amazing, from squeezing me in on short notice to all of my appointments. Every explanation was clear and made with care! I would highly recommend Dr. Jones and Orthopedic Institute!
Dr. Jones and his team are always very thorough and friendly. I hadn’t been to see Dr. Jones in a couple years, and the nurse and PA both knew exactly who I was. That’s pretty cool and nice to know I’m not “just another patient.”
Dr. Jones and his staff are amazing. They are patient and understanding. I had surgery in December and all five of my incisions are invisible. Beautiful workmanship.
Dr. Jones is the most compassionate physician—kind, caring. He is very intelligent and takes time to explain options and asks what I think, etc. His PA is excellent—very personable They work together like a well-oiled machine. They are the BEST!
Very pleased to have such excellent doctors and facility close to home.
Dr. Jones explained my injury very well and what I needed to do for therapy.
