‘There is no sign of the pilonidal problem recurring’

I have been feeling great since the cleft lift procedure. The incision healed nicely within a couple of weeks of the surgery, and the scar has not been painful. It is so nice not to have to bandage myself every morning to keep pus and blood from potentially ruining my clothing. I have also enjoyedContinue reading “‘There is no sign of the pilonidal problem recurring’”

‘I urge you to trust Dr. Sternberg’s capabilities and get your life back’

Dr. Sternberg’s (and staff) care and expertise was nothing short of life changing. I’ll save some of the details of my pilonidal disease prior to my procedure with Dr. Sternberg, but I will mention that my disease progressed slowly over a very long period of time, and thus became somewhat easy to, at least, tolerate.Continue reading “‘I urge you to trust Dr. Sternberg’s capabilities and get your life back’”

‘We traveled to San Francisco from Texas and we would do it again in a heartbeat’

Do not look any further! I found Dr. Sternberg on the internet while desperately searching for a cure for pilonidal disease after my son’s three failed surgeries within 2 years.

‘I cannot stress enough to pick the right surgeon’

My 18 year old son had suffered with pilonidal disease for nearly three years. He had not had any previous surgeries but dealt with a constantly draining pilonidal sinus.

Dr. Sternberg’s knowledge, expertise, experience, education were unparalleled andContinue reading “‘I cannot stress enough to pick the right surgeon’”

‘He literally gave me my life back’

I am about one year post-op from my cleft lift surgery with Dr. Sternberg. To be honest, I thought all surgeons were the same after my first failed operation. I suffered with my pilondial cyst for over a year. It all started on a road trip from Michigan to California. Just as I was approachingContinue reading “‘He literally gave me my life back’”

‘Changed my life forever’

This will be a very long story-review. It is needed to know the full effect of what pilonidal disease will do to someone and how life-changing Dr. Sternberg’s procedure is. I have suffered with pilonidal disease for about the last two years. The first couple times it became inflamed, it was extremely painful but theContinue reading “‘Changed my life forever’”

Dr.Sternberg has a great bed side manor, and I would highly recommend seeing him if you’re suffering from anyContinue reading “‘Six weeks after the surgery, I’m completely healed’”

‘I could not be happier!’

I had the cleft lift done back on January 10th of this year and I could not be happier! After four failed surgeries and multiple visits to wound care “specialists” I found Dr. Sternberg online and decided it was time to go to San Fran. He was extremely professional, outgoing and kind and made theContinue reading “‘I could not be happier!’”

‘I am greatly relieved that I had this procedure’

So far, my cleft lift seems to have been accomplished with a minimal amount of pain by a team of true professionals. At every stage: scheduling, pre-surgery, surgical visit, and follow-ups – they listened, they gave advice, and they guided us through an anxious time. I must say, though, I was never afraid because DrContinue reading “‘I am greatly relieved that I had this procedure’”
