Everything about the Sternberg Clinic is a breeze! I suffered with Pilonidal disease for almost 3 years. After 3 failed surgeries and countless cauterization procedures done by doctors, like frogs in a well, unwilling to follow new advancements in medicine, I was recommended a surgery where a surgeon would chip off my tail bone to remove (non existent) infected bone with no assurance from the surgeon that this will potentially fix me. I looked up surgeons for a second opinion and finally consulted with Dr. Sternberg.
It has been 2 years since Dr. Sternberg fixed me. From the time I contacted his clinic to the end of recovery, Dr. Sternberg and his staff have dealt with me in a very professional yet compassionate manner. With the failed experiences I had, I expressed my concerns to Dr. Sternberg and he assured me more than once that this is going to be different and was very comfortable and confident in his assurance.
I got the surgery done in 2019 and although it took me a while to recover from the hypertrophic scar that formed on my skin, I am finally able to say that I no longer have Pilonidal disease! I can sit on a chair by resting against the backrest, sleep on my back and basically not have a perpetual shooting pain in the butt 🙂 Forever grateful to have met Dr. Sternberg and his team!
