Surgery saved my high school football career

I could not have had a greater experience with Dr. Sternberg and his team! I visited a surgeon before finding Dr. Sternberg who told me that my football career would be over and that I would require pilonidal surgery that would take over six months to heal. My mother found this website and we immediately contacted him and he responded very quickly while on his way on vacation.

I got to play my first junior college season of football and had surgery that December. A month exactly after surgery I was back to getting to work into my training routine and now I am on scholarship at a four year university. I have had no issues after the surgery. For me, It is as if It never happened other than sporadic tingling here and there. No pain or any other issues at all. This is absolutely your guy. I would give a 10 stars out of 5 if possible.
