I Traveled… and I Could Not Be Happier

Every country in the world needs a Pilonidal expert like Dr. Sternberg. I’m a 22 year old male and I suffered from this nasty disease since November 2020. I received surgery for it once which was a wide excisional marsupialization which never healed and i was left with an open wound and multiple mid line openings close to my anus which made my case quite difficult.

I knew I could not live like that nor could I receive the same surgery so I spent months researching the disease and the best possible treatments and surgery options as well as surgeons. All that research payed off when I found Dr Sternberg, I traveled from Northern Saskatchewan Canada to receive the Excisional Cleft Lift surgery from Dr Sternberg and I could not be happier with the the communication before I went for surgery as well as the care I received in the hospital and the post op check ins.

Everyone who is involved on Dr Sternberg’s team are truly superheroes to me they made the experience amazing. I am now fully cleared to return to normal life 1 month and 2 days after surgery, the recovery has been a breeze with no complications. I will forever be grateful for Dr Sternberg and will always recommend him when I come across someone who has suffered like I have.
