Finally, a Successful Surgery

My son had surgery for a pilonidal cyst 4 years ago, he continued to have pain after surgery, had 2 more surgeries last year and had to leave school because it got to the point where he could not sit anymore—we saw Dr Sternberg for this, he recommended a “cleft lift procedure”.  My son hadContinue reading “Finally, a Successful Surgery”

High praise from a grateful sufferer of an acute pilonidal abscess that was drained with great relief

This dude is a pilonidal expert. For those that don’t know what this is, it’s this really annoying cyst in your butt crack that makes it hurt to sit down. It’s like having a zit / bruise on the end of your spinal cord. This doctor always relieves my pain and is a very niceContinue reading “High praise from a grateful sufferer of an acute pilonidal abscess that was drained with great relief”

Surgery saved my high school football career

I could not have had a greater experience with Dr. Sternberg and his team! I visited a surgeon before finding Dr. Sternberg who told me that my football career would be over and that I would require pilonidal surgery that would take over six months to heal. My mother found this website and we immediatelyContinue reading “Surgery saved my high school football career”

A Comfortable and Well-Informed Patient

Dr. Sternberg and his team are phenomenal in my opinion. I went in for a pilonidal operation. From first consultation to surgery I felt comfortable and well-informed about the whole process. Dr. Sternberg and team did a great job with my surgery. I was especially impressed with all the follow up check-ins afterwards, to ensureContinue reading “A Comfortable and Well-Informed Patient”

‘I don’t know why other doctors do not do this surgery’

I went through Dr. Sternberg’s pilonidal cyst surgery over two years ago and I am very happy I made that decision. I was dealing with the issue for months. I went to Kaiser initially to see if they could remove it, but their suggested surgery required making a very deep cut, the recovery time wasContinue reading “‘I don’t know why other doctors do not do this surgery’”

‘Dr. Sternberg is confident, kind and has great empathy for his patients struggling with Pilonidal Disease’

Our 19 year old son suffered for the years after a failed Pilonidal Surgery in San Diego.

‘Great doctor, great treatment’

I had the pilonidal surgery over 10 years ago and I still have no signs of the cyst coming back. If I could remember, I was up and around 3-4 days after surgery and returned to all my activities within the month. I’m very grateful to Dr. Sternberg and his team. \Pro tip: Do bridgeContinue reading “‘Great doctor, great treatment’”

‘The Cleft Lift procedure he performs is definitely at the cutting edge of his field’

Dr. Sternberg, without question, is one of the top experts (if not the best) in treating pilonidal disease in the world. Since my freshman year of high school, I repeatedly struggled to combat the seemingly undefeatable pilonidal disease. I first had surgery with a plastic surgeon in Pennsylvania and had laser hair removal treatment inContinue reading “‘The Cleft Lift procedure he performs is definitely at the cutting edge of his field’”
