After our daughter endured three failed surgeries by other providers to treat her pilonidal disease and missed nearly a year of high school, we turned to Dr. Sternberg. Our daughter was so worried that a Cleft Lift would radically change her appearance, though when the removed bandages revealed a great outcome, she cried with joy and relief. Better still, she healed quickly and completely, resuming a normal teenager life within two weeks of the procedure. We should add that we traveled all the way from our home in Hawaii for the surgery in SF with Dr. Sternberg and it was worth everything for his expertise. Mahalo and aloha, Dr. Sternberg and your amazing team!Edward T.
