‘I have not felt this good since I can remember’

After many failed attempts and countless Doctors, E.R’s and Dermatologist visits to get my cyst under control, I was at my breaking point. I currently live in New Hampshire and I wanted this surgery done by someone I knew I could trust. After hours spent researching and reading all the horror stories from failed open wound surgeries. I decided it was in my best interest to make the travel to S.F and have the cleft lift surgery done by Dr. Sternberg and finally put an end to years of pain and discomfort.

Traveling to Dr.Sternberg was one of the best decisions of my life. The flight to San Fransisco I was in a great deal of pain due to my cyst flaring up. I was back on the plane 2 days after my surgery and can honestly say it was the most pain free flight I’ve had in 6 years. I am 8 days out of my surgery and have not felt this good since I can remember. The post-op care is easy and relatively painless. In comparison to the pain pilonidal cyst caused me over the years, it is very minor. I can not thank Dr.Sternberg and his team of surgeons for letting me live freely again! I will make a follow up post in a couple month.
