I am in Quito, Ecuador, the "Middle of The World”. You see my Dad, Andreaus, the Plastic Surgeon you helped to train, and who made the nerve diagnosis on me related to the groin and thigh pain I had after running track in High School. My Mom and little sister are with us as we travel for Christmas. I have no more pain Dr. Dellon. See me smiling in my white shirt and jeans? Thank you, AP.

It is 15 years since you operated on me. Then I was a nationally ranked high school swimmer. Yes, your website has me swimming the Race from Alcatraz a few years ago. Now look what I am doing. Squats with 300 pounds (I know you are cringing!). Also I am now a transplant Psychologist for the University of Mississippi, and am here giving a lecture. Thanks so much for fixing my groin pull and groin pain injuries, Dr. Dellon.

I made it trough surgery - we did 3 different surgical locations.

Bellow is a picture of Dr. Lee Dellon in room about an hour ago. We had a nice chat and it is so reassuring to know that someone for more than 3 decades has pushed the envelope to help patients like me - people 99.999% of doctors have no idea what to do with. Thank you all for having positive thoughts for me. I also appreciate more than many of you will ever know the time and friendship that you give to me.

thanks. Your results can’t be “beat"!

LEE HAWKS Testimonial

I am a 65 year old retired Captain, career naval officer (SEE PHOTOS of THE A-6 INTRUDER, in which I had more than 4000 flight hours and 1000 carrier landings) and am writing this testimonial to share my experience as a “long- suffering chronic pain sufferer” which thankfully ended after two surgeries by Dr. A. Lee Dellon.

My journey began just prior to my retirement from the US Navy in 2004 when I was informed during my retirement physical that I had an inguinal hernia which required immediate repair. The laparoscopic surgery took place at an outstanding Midwest university hospital by the hospital’s most qualified surgeon.

My recovery from surgery was surprisingly slow — much longer than I expected.  I remember signing a disclaimer prior to surgery that mentioned "that roughly 10% of all hernia repairs result in long-term complications” — but I didn’t give it much thought.

Fast forward about 5 years.  Although seemingly recovered from the surgery, I still had occasional short duration “pulses of pain”  in my right groin that were unexplained (and very troubling since these pain pulses would occur randomly).  Due to the amount of time that had passed, I did not consider the possibility that my discomfort was in any way related to the prior hernia surgery. This pattern continued until one day about 3 years ago when, in a big box hardware store, I inexplicably found myself lying on the floor from the worst pain I had every felt which literally brought me to my knees. Little did I know that this was the beginning of almost two years of debilitating right-side groin pain. This condition began to wear on my mental health.

My primary care doctor referred me to a local surgeon who immediately had me undergo a CT scan of that area which revealed “a minefield” of metal clips that were used in the hernia repair.  It was the judgment of this local surgeon that I was experiencing nerve pain in some fashion from this prior hernia surgery.  His view was that the most likely culprit was either nerve entrapment or nerve(s) in direct contact with these metal clips, or both.

It was mutually agreed to start treating this with a series of steroid shots.  These shots did provide some short term relief but did nothing to solve the root problem. At this point I was getting desperate and began “trolling” for a possible surgical solution.  After several years of enduring this pain, I had pretty much shut down.  No golf, no real family life.  Just myself in my own little world of pain with no clear way forward.  I had reconciled my mind to the fact that resuming all the things I loved might be out of reach.

This is when I literally stumbled upon the “Dellon Institute" website and Dr. A. Lee Dellon.  I read chapter 4 in his book about groin pain syndrome and couldn’t believe it — everything about this condition fit me to a “T”.  Almost on a whim, I emailed him describing myself, my situation and at the end of the email, a plea for help. I was shocked that within minutes, he responded.  I mentioned in my email that I was a retired Navy fighter pilot and to my amazement, he said his father-in-law was a retired navy pilot also so the connection was made — pure and simple.  (Note:  I thought it might also be fate because we shared the same first name.)  I   immediately coordinated an office visit (about a 4 hour drive for us).  After an examination it was his medical opinion that I was indeed suffering from nerve entrapment and so surgery was scheduled for about 4 weeks later.

This surgery though, didn’t end my journey.  After 6-8 weeks, I still was uncomfortable and so Dr. Dellon had me come up for another consultation. He  determined that there was still a lingering neuroma, or “hot-spot," that he deemed “fixable" with a second surgery.  So, four months to the day after the first surgery, he operated again.  This time was very different though.  Instead of another nerve resection, this surgery was “other worldly”. After putting me to sleep, he made an incision in the area of said “hot-spot," brought me out of the anesthesia, and then began a series of pokes/prods until I confirmed the exact location of the pain.  He then put me back to sleep and removed a metal staple (from the previous hernia repair) and a small piece of mesh (same hernia repair) where a nerve was clearly entrapped.

The recovery from this second surgery was slow — there is no getting around that.  As the patient, I would characterize this procedure as very invasive.  But based upon Dr. Dellon’s recommendation, I began walking in the swimming pool about 4 weeks later.  This hardly seemed like the answer, but I hung in there — even on days when I still felt lousy.  However, after about a month or so of that, I finally said to myself “the hell with it, I’m going to try and swim a lap or two.” Now here is where this gets interesting.  After a couple months of this walking/swimming routine, I woke up one morning and for the first time in years, I didn’t feel anything resembling pain.  Couldn’t believe it — couldn’t really process it.

Fast forward again to present day.  I resumed playing golf last June (SEE PHOTO) and have continued swimming as my primary source of aerobic exercise.  I’m hooked.  I now swim 4-5 times/week for 30-45 minutes at a time.  Feels great.

I realize that everyone is different when it comes to dealing with pain but for myself,  I was completed terrified of becoming a long-term pain management case.  Those “dark years” are now in my rear view mirror and thanks to Dr. Dellon (and a strong belief in the power of prayer), I am back to being the person that my family remembers before this journey began.  

In sum, I am reminded daily how many people are suffering from various maladies well beyond the magnitude which I have described here.  That said, I think it is important for those with this problem to know that there is a solution.

Buck-Beckie at Grand Canyon 3-2013For 4 long years ago an auto accident changed my life with a groin injury. My dear husband, family, friends, and church family watched as my glow subsided and my smile was replaced with a forced one, my energy replaced with pain, with a weak lie "I'm doing OK"...

Since my surgery with you Dr Dellon, date on 12/12/12, my answer, in body and spirit, is "I am a new woman", when anyone asks...the answer comes from deep in my soul and I wear as a genuine smile on my glowing face....

I just told my Pastor that I didn't think there is enough paper in my house to write the blessings I have already experienced since you operated on me....everyday, and that is NOT an exaggeration, I stop and thank God, for your gifted knowledge and skilled hands...my body along with my burdened spirit has been restored....thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have sent some pictures of me enjoying my new life...(just a SMALL sample) Easter with my family. (picking up and holding my grandchildren...pain free!) Playing backyard baseball with my grandchildren....chasing and running the basses. Playing in the tree fort (that Grandpa built) with my grandchildren, Janzen and Kallista. Riding 4 hours in the car (to and from Seattle), to watch (another 3-4 hours) my Seattle Mariner's baseball team beat the Texas Rangers! Girls night out! ) A 14 day motorhome vacation (that included a flight to Houston, TX to pick up the motorhome...then driving to Bellingham,WA) RB

I am still pool walking/swimming and have started to exercise. (Need to loose 12 lbs I put on between surgery recovery, Christmas, and a delightful motorhome vacation ;D ....the blessing is...I CAN!)

This Dr. Dellon...is my 'nutshell' of how I am doing...such a SMALL sample...

This patient is 3 months out from decompression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve at the lateral thigh for a nerve compression here causing pain, numbness, and burning down the lateral thigh to the knee (meralgia paresthetica).  She has had an incredible response to surgery dropping her pain levels from a 9 to 1 on her pain scale. 

Operation peformed by Dr. Eric Williams


This patient is 3 months from groin denervation.  She suffered for 4 years of chronic pain in the groin and lateral thigh after a hysterectomy.  We removed the RIGHT ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, genitofemoral, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.  None of these nerves affect sexual function.  They all traveled to the skin and provide sensation to a portion of the groin and lateral thigh.  Several nerves were caught in scar tissue from this operation that caused severe pain and disability.  She is now completely off her narcotic medications, and her pain levels have improved from an 8 to 0-1.  Proof that sometimes it is okay to lose your nerve.

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.

 SAM 2803 3 800x600Three months pregnant with my second child and a month after my daughter began walking, I stopped. I was diagnosed with a torn groin (adductor) and told that it would heal with rest and rehab. Throughout the next 12 months I was in a wheelchair or on crutches. I consulted with 6 Obstetricians, 4 Orthopedic Surgeons, and 1 PM&R Specialist who all called my injury an anomaly and did not know what to do. When I was referred to Dr. Dellon, I was hopeless and desperate to walk again. I had never been able to carry my new baby without a wheelchair. Dr. Dellon immediately knew how to help me after my initial consult and recommended surgery. I walked out of the surgery center with no more groin pain only pain from the incision sites. Three months later, I am able to carry both of my children, get on the floor and play with them, walk to the park, and be intimate with my husband again. Thank you for giving me my life back! You are a miracle worker.

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.

This patient had 5 years of severe right sided hip and groin pain. He is 6 weeks from the resection of the right ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves and decompression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. He has had a very good response to this procedure, and we have successfully ended his 5 years of pain. He and his wife are both happy.

 


 Surgery by Dr. Eric Williams

Patient is 3.5 months from denervation of the right groin by removing the ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genitofemoral nerve. This patient had an inguinal hernia repair and unfortunately has terrible groin and testicular pain following the otherwise successful repair. Wearing clothing was painful and intimacy with his wife nearly impossible. He is now much happier, with near complete resolution of his groin and testicular pain.

Dear Dr. Dellon,

Thank you for relieving my severe pain and helping me walk again.  A basketball injury from 4 years ago caused my progressive right hip pain. This chronic pain worsened to the point that I could not lift my leg out of the car, climb stairs or get on and off a bed or couch. All my life I played sports and in my adult years continued with a daily exercise routine until the pain crippled me. Since having surgery by you, I am able to golf 18 holes again and participate in a daily exercise program. I am grateful to be painfree and have this quality of life again.

Dr Dellon, it is now 8 months since your last operation on me to help with my buttock pain. As you can see from this photo, I am now able to squat to garden. Whereas I was unable to sit for more than 8 minutes for the previous 4 years, despite three previous surgeries. I can now sit for about 35 minutes. My running is almost back to the marathon level. Thank you so much.

Dr. Dellon-

I hope all is well with you. I wanted to write you since it has been almost a year since you operated on me and give you an update. I am
doing and feeling great! Thanks to you. After my hernia repair, my abdominal and hip pain was so severe I couldn't hold a job or even do normal household chores. I had three years of pain until finally I was referred to you. Any activity at all would cause a shooting aching pain through my abdomen and hip and it would radiate down my leg and into my lower back. The first surgery you did relieved me of a majority of my pain and allowed me to quit all the drug prescriptions I was then taking. The second nerve surgery on my hip you did completely relieved me of all my pain. Now I am living a normal life, as opposed to being bed ridden and weighing less than 100 lbs.

I currently have a job at the University of Arizona, College of Medicine-Phoenix as an administrative assistant for a fellowship program. It is really nice to have a job and to not call in sick. I also have been able to participate in any physical activity I like without pain. I have attached a photo of me wakeboarding, which is something I love to do but used to have to sit in the boat and just watch.

Words cannot describe how grateful I am that I was able to be in your care. Thanks again for everything. Your talent and knowledge have really blessed my life along with many others.

Sincerely-

Laura Olson


Dr. Dellon,

There is no way that I can thank you enough for giving me my life back. Although I know I will never be a competitive swimmer again because of you I am able to pass my gift onto others. I am currently coaching under my childhood coach for the swim team I swam on for a great deal of my life. As if coaching weren’t enough, I was able to teach my young niece how to swim. Seeing that she was born the day after one of my surgeries with you, I truly see her as a gift. You see her in the photo in the pool with me. Every time I carry her to the pool I think how sad it would if I was unable to pass my gift and passion for swimming to her.

After my life had changed from the intense physical activity of a Division I swimmer to a feeble and pained eighteen year old college freshman unable to walk I thought that my life would never be the same again; I thought that I would never be happy again. It turned out that my original pain was from a groin hernia. But when that was repaired I had a new pain that would just not go away. Upon seeking out any fragment of help we could from over fifty physicians and coming out empty handed my family and I were truly at a loss. My pain management physician had me going down that never-ending drug trail.  

Although, I realized my life would never be the same again I simply wanted to be able to live the life of an average eighteen year old. The hundreds of desperate attempts through cortisone injections, radiofrequency treatments and phenol injections only increased the pain leaving us more discouraged than ever. I had returned to school after having taken the second half of my freshman year off. I had been unable to focus on the few days that I could even make it to class The life I was living was so foreign to me and I needed a change.

The first time I met with you I was taking an absurd amount of narcotics. You identified that my pain was coming from nerves stuck in my hernia repair. You removed those damaged nerves, and also lengthened a torn groin muscle tendon that was injured during swimming. Your surgery has truly given me life back.

I had to drop out of College, but after your surgery, I was able to stop my drugs and complete College. As I walked across stage at graduation (see the photo) with all of my original classmates I looked up at my family and knew they were thinking the same thing, this is a miracle. Now that I am completing my second semester of graduate school I am absolutely amazed at the life I thought I was going to have compared to what I do have.

The joy of swimming is important to me, but the joy of my being able to live my life is certainly even more important. Your expertise is the reason that I walked across that stage, that I am able to take my niece into the water, that I am able to coach and that I am able to continue my studies.

My family and I are so grateful for what you have given us and we can not ever thank you enough.

Thank you!

Dr. Dellon,

My groin surgery was eight months ago today. I wanted to send you a progress report feel that I have made great progress. You remember that I had 11 operations in 16 months before your help.

First, the measurable progress:

• I am no longer in constant, excruciating pain.
• I am no longer on enough narcotics for ten junkies. My last dose of narcotic medication was October 3, 2004.
• I do not have an implanted electronic stimulation device.
• I have no open surgical wounds or infections.
• Since you untangled my nerves, I have regained all sexual function. I had lost at least 85% before surgery.
• I have regained a great deal of my concentration, memory, and the ability to do complex mathematical and financial computations. The combination of multiple surgeries, anesthesia, and pain medications had limited most of these functions, along with the ability to write creatively.

On most days I am able to:
• Drive a few miles around town.
• Run short errands to the store, post office, library, and bank.
• Eat lunch with a friend.
• Tutor a high school student in math and science.
• On really good days I can walk around the block.

I am so much better than I was the day that I first walked into your office. Thank you for all that you have done to make my life more liveable.

Dear Dr Dellon:

Just a note to let you know I'm doing much better since having the pelvic nerve resections (June 2004 and Sept. 2004).  The pelvic pain has gone away.  No longer do I have the aggravating pelvic pain that I've had to live with for 6 years.  After having the right side done in June, I then suffered the remainder of the summer with left sided pelvic pain until having the surgery in September.  Now, I have a depp sensation on either side more like a pressure sensation maybe numbness - but it is so much better than the intolerable nerve pain.  You really have given me my life back.

I'm so gratefl to you for all your help.  I just thank God that I was able to find you - I was given no hope for significant relief of my pain.  Thank you for your research in nerve surgery and your interest in educating physicians in this topic.  It is certainly very much needed.

Let me know if you have a foundation for future contributions to nerve research, or have a medical organization that needs contributions.  I would like to help in any way that I can.

Thanks you so much!

Steven Lisberger, Santa Monica, CA, March 2005

I had a laprascopic hernia repair that fixed my hernia but left me with permanent nerve damage. The chronic pain left me completely disabled for years.  I needed medication to make it through the day.  After two unsuccessful exploratory surgeries by other surgeons I found Dr. Dellon.  There is no better way to say it - Dr. Dellon gave me my life back.

Not only had the original surgery left me in chronic pain but the problem seemed impossible to diagnosis and repair.  Before Dr. Dellon, I had 2 MRIs, numberous nerve blocks, countless visits to neurologists, hernia specialists, and neurosurgeons in Los Angeles and New York, and the problem seemed to be beyond the reach of all of them.  I had lost all faith in modern medicine.  I was warned that any nerve surgery would only increase my existing pain, or worse, might leave me with phantom pain, and that I would have to be on pain medication the rest of my life.  I was told by numerous doctors and surgeons that no one would ever really know what went wrong.  My prognosis couldn't have been worse.  It was the most trying time of my life.  It was all too clear to me that most surgeons prefer cookie cutter operations and once one is no longer "normal" they would just as soon avoid you and your problem, even if they created it.

Dr. Dellon was the exact opposite.  He was confident, extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and more than ready to take on the "basket case" I was.  At first one asks oneself why he is so different than the others?  The answer is what I hoped it was.  He gets an enormous amount of satisfaction from pitting his exceptional surgical abilities and intellect against very difficult and unique surgical problems that are beyond the capabilities of average surgeons.

When he operated on me, after those years of excruciating pain I barely dared to hope for a positive outcome.  He had a difficult time getting my confidence up.  It is now over five years since his surgery and I am pain free.  He located the source of my pain, an errant surgical tack and he cut two of my groin nerves just like he said he would.  I had immediate relief.  In my case, and he said this would occur, I had some intermittent aches and pains over the next two years or so, as my nerves healed, numbness abated, and my mind struggled to get used to not having constant pain.  I must admit during this time I was scared more than once that these pains might be the return of my problem but he said it wasn't and again he was right.  Looking back on that time I realize it was all part of the recovery process not just for my body but for my mind as well.  These days I ski, chop wood, body surf, and do anything a fifty something person can do.  I am not sure if my faith in modern medicine is restored but my faith in Dr. Dellon makes up for it.



  




I am a 83 year old man.

Dr  Dellon operated on me May 10, 2010. I had a trapped nerve under the mesh that the Dr. used  to repair the hernia. I have had problems all these years. The pain finally got so bad it was wrecking my life.  I live in big city and no doctor could do anything for me.  I found Dr. Dellon on his web site. It was like a gift of God. He is a very gifted man, Dr. Dellon and his wife was very helpful in making arrangements on their end of the trip as I live 800 miles from Baltimore. I am free of the awful pain I was experiencing and I will always be grateful to Dr. Dellon for relieving my pain.

This patient had a decompression of the common digital nerve to the second and third toe, otherwise known as a Morton's neuroma.  Instead of removing this nerve we preferred to perform a decompression of the nerve by dividing the ligament between the metatarsal heads (bones in your foot) in order to take pressure of the nerve.  We do this to try to maintain sensation in the toes while at the same time improving pain.  Removing the Morton’s neuroma will make the toes permanently numb.  This patient was able to run 8 miles 7 weeks after surgery.  He reports that all of his pain is gone.

Dr Dellon recommends "Water Therapy" after surgery on the foot or ankle, and after pudendal nerve surgery. Here is a patient enjoying "Water Therapy" at a pool "south of the border". Clearly this is very therapeutic.

 

 



Dr. Dellon,

I wanted to share this picture of me, my wife Stacie and our little girl after my race last weekend.  Six weeks after Mortons Neuroma surgery I got back in my Spec Racer Ford and won the first race of the season, Apr 17, 2011.

I can tell you that banging a race clutch to the floorboard during speed shifts is not easy on your foot, but I was able to do so without pain. I waited two years before accepting that my neuroma was not going away on its own, and at that point I decided that I wanted to find a surgeon at the very top of their game for this operation. Thanks for the great work!

Dear Dr. Eric Williams.

It has now been 8 weeks since you performed surgery on the Morton's Neuroma in my left foot. I had been suffering with this condition for about seven years, and the severity of it was getting worse with each passing year. In my efforts to walk on that foot, I started developing hip, knee and back problems as well. When on my feet, I was in constant, sometimes excruciating pain.

I liked your approach, which was to preserve my nerve, and not remove it as so many other doctor’s had suggested. So you did the “neurolysis”, just dividing the ligament that was pinching the nerve.... and the pain is G-O-N-E!!!... and so are the aches and problems in my back, hip and knees!!! My chiropractor even released me from his care, as I no longer needed therapy to keep me going. I have every confidence that the numbness will also subside in time, and I look forward to regaining agility as I increase my physical activities... WITHOUT PAIN, WITHOUT CANE!!

I will always be grateful to you and to the Dellon Institutes.

Sincerely,

Anita Myers

Dear Dr. Dellon,

 

Thank you. I'm doing great! In fact, I ran in the Las Vegas Marathon last month and am teaching 7 classes a week. My foot feels 100% fine... just a little itch on the scar every now and then. Otherwise it's perfect!

I would also like to say that the post surgery was completely painless. I didn't have one second of pain, and that was a very pleasant surprise. In fact, I taught kickboxing 4 days after surgery... but only jumped on one foot.

I am sending you the picture they took of me at the finish line...

Dear Doctor Dellon                                      July 25, 2010

It is now 4 months since the surgery you did to release the pressure on the nerve between my right 3rd and 4th toe which I was told was a Morton's Neuroma. While the other doctors wanted to remove the nerve, your approach is to save it. I had trust in you because you had operated on my hands years ago when I was a letter carrier for the post office.
 
I want to thank you. I am now able to run, walk, and can sleep without any pain and I still have the feeling in my toes. 

Why did I put off the surgery for so long? I had heard horror stories of people going in for removal of their Morton's Neuroma and never getting the relief from pain, and leaving them with a deformed foot. My podiatrist had heard of you and told me that you were not only a hand surgeon but an extremely successful surgeon for nerves in the feet, and that you traveled all over giving lectures.

Thank you for giving me freedom from constant foot pain. My foot feels like new again.

Joint Pain (Ankle, Elbow, Knee, Shoulder, Wrist)

It is 23 years since Dr. Dellon denervated my right shoulder. It is great now. I can lift a heavy weight over my head and do everything I want to do. Thank you Dr. Dellon

During our boat cruise in Austria and Germany, I stopped to cycle each day. It is 2 years since you denervated my painful ankle, Dr Dellon, and I can cycle for hours now without pain. Here I am in the city of Melk, Austria, on the Danube river. And the wine is great too! GM

Look at my shoulder work now Dr. Dellon. I know you remember it was paralyzed. You rebuilt the damaged nerve. Look at me go!! A.

Look at me climbing steps with my wife! I am 86 years old. They wanted to replace both my knee joints. My son “the doctor” told me about your operation to denervate my knees and relieve my pain. And you did it Dr. Dellon. Eight weeks ago. Thanks. DS

“Look at me run!!” When you operated on me 5 months ago I was completely disabled. Previous surgery included 14 operations. Both knees in pain since childhood. Left leg was getting paralyzed. I am in rehab, and it is going great. No more knee pain and my left quads are regaining bulk. Thanks so much Dr. Dellon. DS

Good Morning Doctor Dellon
I injured my knee during my work as a Police Sergeant, and as a Coach ands a Soccer Trainer for a team of young boy. Also I had a bike accident, Orthopedic surgery could not help the immense pain that remained in my knee. Then your student, Doctor Andreas Gohritz operated on me at the University Hospital in Basle, Switzerland. It was a denervation Surgery.
Since then i’m to 99 % pain-free and i’m able to move freely my knee. I’m also able to knee down.
For recovering my quality of life i‘m very grateful, especially to Doctor Andreas Gohritz.

For you Doctor Lee Dellon i’m also very grateful for your medical innovations, your research and your teaching.

Police work & soccer playing ruined left knee. Dr A. Gohritz did “Dellon-ation,” a knee denervation. Now I am wonderful (wundebar) again.

 


I am doing well, 3 months since you denervated my knee. I continue to progress with minimal pain and 0 narcotics. Still working through my ability to stand for longer than 2+ hours without pain. Although at this point this is a significant improvement over the 45 minute pain point prior to surgery. I am also still swimming twice weekly so all things considered I am quite happy and most certainly very active. K

I wanted to send you an update on the current status of knees 6 months after the last surgery some slight discomfort around the incision sites (which has been improving over time), I'm left virtually with no pain. When I was returning from the last of my four university exams last week, it suddenly struck me what an incredible difference you have made to my life. Only 5 years ago I was unable to sit on a chair for more than 30min without extreme discomfort. Now I have just sat through four three hour exams without feeling any pain at all. This means the world to me and I am looking forward to taking advantage of all the opportunities that have opened up. Having been a very sporty person, I can now return to activities that I have loved in the past.

You made the impossible possible, my dreams come true. I remain forever grateful. Kind regards, Felicity

I remained disabled two years ago after my total knee replacement. It is now one year since your partial knee denervation surgery. The sharp pains in my right knee have greatly subsided, and the knee feels the best it has (and likely ever will) since the original knee replacement. For that, we are so grateful for your skill. There is still an achiness and overall sense of a tired right knee if I tour or shop or walk too long—but this is quite different than the sharp, stabbing pains prior to your surgery and more manageable. I just prop the knee up and rest it until I go again. We walk in the square in Santa Fe. I am able to ride the stationary bike 45 minutes, three times a week. Life is good! It’s cold here in Santa Fe but very festive this time of year with farolitas and fires and holiday music. We wish you the merriest of holidays and thank you so much for your care and personal interest! MLC

I was Dr. Hungerford's patient and had a knee replacement in Nov. 1993 and you fixed the pain in both knees about a year after that. I lived in Northern Virginia and came to him at Good Samaritan Hospital and you operated on me at Children's Hospital, if memory serves me. The knees are still good after 19 years and the nerve removal is still good after 18 years. Everybody asked why I would travel so far to see you . I guess the quality and the longevity of the procedures speaks for itself. Great doctors produce great results.

Dr. Peled of the Dellon Institutes,

This is a letter I feel is most necessary to thank you for my knee surgeries and the difference they have made in my life. What a miracle this has been for me; my quality of life has been totally improved. These are just a few of the ways in which my life has changed:
• Today, I am able to join to my family and friends to go shopping, buy groceries, and cook meals without having to quit as I could not stand long enough to finish what I had started.
• I could not stand to get goods, pots and pans, and clothes that were located in the lower drawers. My knees were in such pain when trying to reach any of these items.

Before this wonderful surgery, my pain was unbearable. All this came about when I had replacements of both knees. Having fibromyalgia, some of the nerve endings would not heal and this resulted in a great deal of pain for me. If I tried to get into any of the above-mentioned postures and with any changes in the weather, what it would do to me is almost unbelievable. Now, I can do all these moves without any pain at all!

The surgery itself was not painful. I only felt soreness around the stitches. I was able to get up and walk within an hour after waking up from surgery.

Thank you, Dr. Peled.

Knee Pain

                             


Kate McGrath, Wilmington, MA May 20, 2006

Dear Doctor Hung and Doctor Dellon,

After six years of constant, never-ending pain, several knee surgeries, pain blocks, a multitude of braces, crutches, hundreds of hours of physical therapy, TENS Units, and pain subscriptions of all types, my diagnosis of RSD (Reflexive Sympathetic Dystrophy) remained untreated. I went to many doctors at different hospitals and they all did the same thing, epidural pain blocks, medicines, pain patches, and TENS Units that never helped. I felt hopeless because no one had a solution for me and all I wanted was to live a pain free day. Then I had the great fortune of being referred to your office by my physical therapist that heard about other miracles that you have performed.

Now, a short three months after the knee denervation surgery, my knee is amazing! I forgot how it felt to not have pain every second of the day, but now I can go through a day of school and sports and not have that distraction. It is a phenomenal feeling! I am running two miles a day at lacrosse and more during the weekend. I was able to walk all around Europe and actually enjoy it because there was nothing slowing me down. I am captain of my high school lacrosse team and I can be less distracted and more aggressive as goalie in varsity field hockey. I am also very excited that sports can again be part of my college search. It is such a relief to play my sports pain free now, to be able to do normal kid things, and most importantly, to have that obstacle of dealing with the pain out of my life.

This would have never been possible without your extraordinary work and intelligence in this field of medicine. You two are my true heroes for finally making my life more enjoyable and pain-free. There is nothing I could every say or do to show you my gratitude.

Thank-You so much,

Kate McGrath
