Posted by South Shore Health System on Jun 14, 2017 10:01:53 AM

People use their hands to console a loved one in times of need, to create art and music, to communicate and to shake after closing a business deal. It’s those human interactions that got John Kadzielski, MD, into the field of hand surgery many years ago. Dr. Kadzielski is the Director of the Division of Hand Surgery and has practiced at South Shore Orthopedics in Hingham since 2012.

In our latest edition of Physician Spotlight, Dr. Kadzielski spent time with us to discuss his practice, why hand surgery is important to him and the expertise that can be found within his team at South Shore Hospital.

Nicole Schindler is a little warrior. Sitting cross-legged on her canopy bed with her dog, “Jo-Jo” on her lap, this 12-year-old year girl is wise beyond her years.

"Now, the little things are important to me,” she said matter-of-factly. ”When I hear people say 'I hate this' I think, you should be happy for the life you have. Be grateful you're here, and enjoy the precious moments."

Colleague Spotlight: South Shore Health System's Ironman

While you are sleeping in on Sunday morning, Dean Haspela, nurse manager on the orthopedics unit on Emerson 5 at South Shore Hospital, will be working out...for a long, long time.

Dean will be in Kona, Hawaii this weekend for the Ironman World Championships, where he will swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and finish off his day with a simple 26.2 mile “jog”.

“I think most of my family and friends think I’m crazy,” Dean said.

Dean got into the sport several years ago on the advice and nudging of his brother and worked his way up from smaller events to a full Ironman. Earlier this year, at the North American Championships in Texas, Dean finished fifth overall in his age group, giving him the necessary qualification time to make it to Hawaii this weekend for the biggest event in the sport.
