One year ago, Dr. Dellon, before you operated on me, I was disabled due to years of pelvic pain. In the photos below you will see my progress; I received a sports “letter” in swimming at my high school and attended the prom. I can ride motor cars at the beach. My life is back and I am so thankful. NB

My Mom, on the right, is 72 and the pudendal (pelvic) pain she has suffered ever since I was born, has been such a load for her (and me) to bare. After your surgery, 7 months ago, removing the pudendal nerve branches stuck in that episiotomy scar, she has been a new woman. Look at that smile. We look like sisters. Thanks Dr. Dellon. CB
It 5 months since you operated on my pudendal nerve, Dr. Dellon, and I have my life back. I am on cheerleading (top center), was voted VP of my high school class. I go dancing, swimming and fishing.As proof, here are photos of me doing some of my favorite things with my friends. Thanks so much. M
My little princess Marian turned 7 this week. Your sugery permitted me and my husband, in the center to create a perfect, happy, pain-free, birthday for her Thank you Dr. Dellon.
Has been 5 years since I could sit without pain. It is 6 weeks since you removed my posterior femoral cutaneous nerve. Look at me now Dr. Dellon! Riding with my daughter at this carnival. Gracias a Dios! y Usted Doctor! MN
It has been 9 weeks since my pudendal nerve surgery with you Dr. Dellon. I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am to you. As you can see in this picture I am sitting on a hard bench and I have jeans on. (I am on the right) I haven't been able to sit for over 3 years without pain and haven't worn jeans in over 2. The last 2 weeks have been huge healing weeks as my pain is almost completley gone. My life has been nothing but pain for over 3 years, i have started to work out again, go out with friends, work, laugh and love again. I went to dozens of other doctors and specialists who misdiagnosed my problem and put me on drugs that did nothing. After doing a lot of research I finally found you and after my initial office visit you were able to diagnose me and told me that the surgery would fix me. You did not let me down. I am forever grateful and would recommend you and your surgery to anyone with a similar problem. Julia
Here I am skating with my young friends. All those drugs prescribed by Gynecologists never helped my pain that started after rectal surgery. Dr. Dellon, now that you removed the pudendal nerve branches that were injured in my original surgery, I am back to full activities. Thank you so much. The Skater from New England
Hello Dr. Dellon,
I am back to work and sitting comfortably again. My family and I will forever be grateful to you for relieving me of the severe pain of pudendal neuromas. Luckily, my brother Jim found your practice on line and convinced me to call you. His words were "you have gotta get it done". I called your office on a Friday night and talked to Luiann and she assured me you would help me. She was right! Less than 12 hours later we were exchanging emails and within two weeks I was flying out for a consultation. Luiann and your office staff offered me a room to lay down as I waited for my appointment because I could not sit for more than 10 seconds. You patiently listened to my story and confidently told me I had bilateral neuromas of the perineal branches of the Pudendal nerve. You and Luiann told me I would feel better soon. Thank God, I listened to both of you! I was amazed I could sit right after surgery. Dr. Dellon when you visited me the following day I wasn't ready to celebrate. I had been to countless doctors prior and didn't want to get my hopes up. When I returned home after surgery you continued to return my emails answering my questions and Luiann asked me many times how I was feeling. The warm water walking you prescribed aided in my recovery and my new 70, 80, and 90 year old friends cheered me along. Dr. Dellon, you gave me my life back!! I am an active person and look forward to skiing, skating, hiking and doing all the fun activities I did before being injured. I wont have to take medication to bandaid the problem or have unnecessary other surgeries. I am free and alive and happy!! Thanks again Dr. Dellon!!
Dr Dellon thank you for my X-mas present!
I am back to golf. Thanks Dr Dellon.
Here is our new baby! After my pudendal nerve surgery with you, Dr. Dellon, my husband and I were able to have another baby. thank you. LU
FROM PUDENDAL NERVE PAIN & DISABILITY BACK TO NORMAL
After almost 4 years in pain and disability, more than 13 doctors and treatments in different nations that couldnt help much, my pudendal nerve problem was finally accurately diagnosed and solved in Baltimore at The Dellon Institute For Peripheral Nerve Surgery by Dr Lee Dellon himself. I am sharing my succesful story so that other patients suffering from similar conditions might have access to useful information that may also lead them to have their lives back to normal.

Me sitting in my sports car at the top of Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevada mountains last weekend. My husband I took our first real trip in three years. I had none of that pain with sitting, which was thought to be pudendal nerve but you found to be cluneal nerves. your surgery Dr Dellon was 3 months ago. The trip, without pain was quite the success. My husband says it is so wonderful to see me sit comfortably through a meal. Sometimes it's the little things in life that you take for granted that mean so much when they are gone.We cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us!

Couldn't drive without cushion even with pain meds before Dr Dellon's pudendal surgery. Definite proof I'm better! Sincerely grateful. CR
Your care & compassion, Dr Dellon, mean more to me than I can express. You operated on me in 2011, and you still follow-up. AW.
Dr Dellon, I am sharing my experience with other people and I am glad to spend nice words on your unquestionable skills and on your ability to bring people back to a normal life.

Look at me sitting without rectal pain!! My pudendal nerve is not bothering me now after your surgery Dr Dellon.
She is back in action. Catch her show if you can. Dr Dellon
I have been able to consummate the act without chemical support and feel confident of being able to do that now too. The regular spontaneous erections I might have experienced through the day still elude me (maybe not be a bad thing as I can get on with my work) but I am feeling improved sensitivity all the time.
After my bike injury and prior to surgery, I experienced a sort of complete disconnect and often felt I had a completely useless penis with reduced sensation. This as you will appreciate was very frustrating and worrying. There always was some functionality. Now after you operated and decompressed the dorsal and perineal branches of my pudendal nerve on both the left and right sides, I feel more potent and confident now and whilst not back to full form quite yet I am much happier . I am really encouraged with the progress especially in the last 10 days. There is a daily improvement which is seemingly accelerating. I do awake with some impressive erections and when I am awake I get them whether stimulated physically, visually or with close contact with my partner. They are very satisfactory. I think you've fixed me Dr Dellon. From the UK
My 5 years of pain after my pelvic fracture are gone. No more pudendal nerve (vaginal pain) after you removed the neuromas Dr Dellon
My urethral buying and vulvar pain are gone . I return to work smiling thanks to Dr Dellon's new operation. T.M., Nevada
It is a year and a half since you operated on me for both groin pain and pudendal nerve pain. I had an awesome past weekend with my husband and girls at Dorney Park Amusement, which is a huge amusement park around here with tons of ridiculous rollercoasters that I would have never gotten on prior to surgery. I am also in my second season of co-ed competitive softball with my husband once a week since April. I would never be where I am without your help and successful surgeries.
So happy sitting with my grandchildren. The pudendal nerve surgery has helped a great deal. Thanks for making my life worth living. I.R. , NY
Three years after you fixed my injured cluneal nerves! Here are my Senior photos from High School this year.
Thanks Dr Dellon
It's been four months since my surgery for the GROIN PULL.
It is now 3 years since my injury when I fell running Cross Country in High School. I'm pain free and I feel like a new person. I have been working a lot at our local farmstand where I am constantly on my feet and moving around. I just recently started running and working out a little. Leaving for college in September and I can't thank you enough for fixing me and giving me my active life back!! My parents thank you too! Here are some photos from last month.
My first hole-in-one. Dr Dellon, clearly many of my functions have improved now 6 months after pudendal nerve surgery. Tx from the Hamptons.

After my pudendal nerve surgery with you 9 months ago , Dr Dellon, I am pretty much back to the normal Mother I was prior to my accident. I have no more groin or pelvic or thigh pain. I can sit on my tush on a hard chair for dinner which I could not do for the past five years. Here I am playing with my children. Note I am sitting on the floor!
My name is Tracie G. I live in Tennessee. after 6 years of suffering excruciating pain. I was referred to Dr. Dellon to help me with pain that 16 other doctors said did not exist. They said that the pain was in my head. I could not sit , stand , walk or rest, ever. Some days I wondered why I was even still here.
My poor husband and family had to go through every single day with me that way. Needless to say, I wasn't myself anymore due to impingements of my pudendal nerve, and my sciatic nerve.
I suffered burning, like lightning, in my genitals , my pelvis and inner thighs.
Dr. Dellon diagnosed the added impingements of the clunial nerve , genitofemoral nerves, and the illoinguinal nerves.
After surgeries with Dr. Dellon, and his wonderful staff, I am able to be alive again, with no pain.
I am able to enjoy all the little things that most people take for granted again.
He saved my life.
God helped me get better by working through Dr. Dellon. and his special gifts and talents have been my saving grace.
I actually got to attend one of my dearest friends grand opening at his salon, with the special appearance by Carson Kressley. It was a great day for me. Thank you so much Dr. Dellon.
I am able to smile again.
MERRY CHRISTMAS !!! AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!
I have had pain for 10 1/2 years until I went to see Dr. Dellon.
It started out thinking I had a yeast or vaginal infection with burning and itching. I went to see my gynecologist and he proved me wrong with the cultures he took.
He sent me to see a Dr. Krumholz who specialized in the cervix and vulva. He told me I had Vulvodynia and I took it from there. At least I was able to have someone pinpoint what I had. He wanted to do some kind of surgical procedure right away! I ran from him.
I then spent my years going to Drs. all over the country. I saw a Dr Robert Moldwin ( urologist), Dr. Elizabeth Stewart/ Boston, Dr. Renney and his team in Houston, Dr. Mark Conway in New Hampshire, Drs. in New York and on and on.
The surgeons recommended surgery, but they wanted to cut into the muscle and tissue in order to get to the pudendal nerve. They all said it will be a long recovery , but none of them kept good records. How can you perform a surgery and not follow it up? So, I was out of their offices.
I had procedures done and took all kinds of medical tests for years. I have suffered this disease for 10 1/2 years and in those years I had Nerve Blocks ( both by palpation and through a Cat Scan.) I had test after test from all the Drs. I saw. I saw Physical Therapists, Psychologists,hypnotists, acupuncture, mega amounts of medicines, including large amounts of Opiods every day. I had 3 D & C's , 2 manually, and one surgically, where polyps were found and taken out.
I had two Latency tests which were not exactly comfortable, but the both Drs. who took those tests said I was definitely a candidate for the surgery where they cut through the muscle and tissue in order to get to the nerve. I had so many tests, and took so much drugs, I can't remember 1/2 of them!
All I know is no matter what I did or who I went to see,( these were the best Drs. in this country), but not one of them could help me! 10 years of suffering 24/7.
My gynecologist, Dr. Deborah Coady specializes in all kinds of vaginal diseases. She coincidentally met Dr. Dellon at an IPPS conference this year. He specializes in nerves. She spoke to him about me and some other women from her practice, and he told her to send me to see him. She had a lot of confidence in him, and advised me to see him. For the first time in all of these years, I started to feel positive.
I went to see him in Baltimore. Both my husband and myself liked him very much and he gave us a positive feeling of trust. I made an appointment that day to have the surgery done in a few months.
I had the operation, and finally, after all of these years, I feel at least 80% better and it's has only been 4 months since the surgery.
This was fate - it was just meant to be. After all of the other doctors and their high reputations, there medications, their blocks, recommendations, etc. No one was able to help me except Dr. Dellon!
I would recommend him in a minute. He really knows how to work on nerves ( which is a very delicate operation), and even though I feel 80% better now, I have faith that it will still get better than this. This is a nerve that was compressed for many years, so I feel it is normal to take longer to heal.
Dr. Dellon's method of surgery was wonderful, and now I walk around with a smile on my face again!

Debbie has the pain in her "butt" removed by Dr Dellon's surgery.
My rectal pain is gone. Four four years, since my vaginal/rectal surgery I have felt like there was a "thorn in my rosebud", a sticking pain just to the side of my anus. Well, now Dr Dellon, since your surgery on my pudendal nerve , that "thorn" is left in Baltimore, and I am painfree home in Florida. Thanks for all that you did for me and the care you extended to Morris and I while we were there with you. We will be forever grateful for all that you did. Please feel free to use my story if it might help someone in the future.
Actress returns to her own one-woman show off-Broadway following pudendal nerve surgery by Dr Dellon.
I've been spending more and more time in the garden, which is my joy. I have probably been doing more bending and squatting than I should. Often the next day I have more pain due to that, but sometimes I just can't help myself. I think in general, the more active I am, within reas on, the better I feel.
I still have tenderness over some areas of the incisions when I press deeply or even when I touch the areas lightly. I also have tenderness over parts of the ischial tuberosities when I press deeply. The right side, as always, is worse than the left. But even all that is getting better I think, and it may be that I'll be able to start sitting at some point for short periods of time.
I have started a slow taper off my drugs. All good news.

A world of gratitude for your personal attention, Dr Dellon, to both my case and the next chapter in my life.Your insight into what I needed to do to recover is inspirational. My pudendal nerve pain is clearly improving. It is three months since the surgery I am back to work as a photographer, and enjoying life with my family again.
Tracy is able to sit again after pudendal nerve decompression by Dr Dellon. Her problem likely started from gymnastic and dancing injuries. She has had pain for four previous years. She is now 4 months since Dr Dellon's neurolysis of the pudendal nerve through a posterior approach and can sit again without the previous pain or pudendal nerve symptoms.
Kate goes to her Winter Ball, in Missouri: She is able to walk and dance after Dr. A Lee Dellon corrected the problem in her left hip, groin, and buttock.
