You cannot find a better colorectal surgeon anywhere. Dr. Sternberg did my procedure and I couldn’t be happier with the way he took care of me. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to have any procedure involving gastrointestinal tract.

I was referred to Dr. Sternberg for a review of my GI condition after I was urgently hospitalized. After meeting with him and him reviewing the scans I brought with me, he recommended surgery. He explained the process to me, but I, of course wanted to do my own research. Two days later he calledContinue reading “Dr. Sternberg was there for me without being judgmental”
I’d had a horrific surgery for a pilonidal abscess 2 years prior by a general surgeon when I came to Dr. Sternberg. I had grown increasingly skeptical of surgeons but Sternberg is knowledgeable with a great attitude. He earned my trust quickly. It’s been over 2 years and I’ve had no problems. I’d highly recommendContinue reading “Dr Sternberg earned my trust quickly”
I had a pilonidal cyst for nearly two years (which lasted through two surgeries by different surgeons). After Dr. Sternberg operated, I was able to go out and be active after a week, and a month later I had completely recovered. He is very professional and knowledgeable. M. F.

I’m 18 and from Seattle, Washington. When we went on lock-down in March of 2020, I began to sit for hours at a time, studying, reading, and eventually Zoom schooling. I first realized that something was wrong when I developed a painful swelling just above my buttock crack. I figured that it was from allContinue reading “Living with an open wound since early in the pandemic”
My son is no longer living in pain and hiding from the world because of this disease. Dr. Sternberg saved my sons life and I will always be grateful. He cares and is the best! — Monica
Draining a pilonidal abscess (I&D) should be in the bag of tricks of any emergency room, urgent care doctor, or surgeon. But the practice is very variable, and many patients have unsatisfactory experiences. Here are the main issues, and I will say this is somewhat controversial as while I feel that I am promoting well-established best practices,Continue reading “Draining a Pilonidal Abscess: Controversies and Best Practices”
Many surgeons choose to treat pilonidal patients with disfiguring, wide-excisional operations hoping to completely remove the elusive cyst. The problem is that many of these radical operations for pilonidal disease: 1) often don’t work and can lead to a recurrence as they fail to shallow the cleft, eliminate dead space under the skin surface, andContinue reading “I am on a mission to educate patients and the surgical community”
