Hello Neighbor - almost :)
I'm outside of Frostburg, MD. Had my PF/TTS done at Sacred Heart in Cumberland by Dr. Peter Brielhoff. He is from NYC and VERY VERY good.
In fact, after my surgeries he himself personally called my house to see how I was doing.
Talk about a doc who cares and listens.
Give me an email and Ill get you his telephone number.

Personal experience means a lot so check out Mike's recommendation. How far are you from Pittsburgh? Dr. Guido LaPorta of Pittsburgh would be high on my list.

Yes, I think alot of Dr. B. I have never met a doc who cares about his patients they way he does, and truthfully his nursing staff is wonderful as well.
As for the scar tissue, it seems I have a few bonker blood tests- elevated White Count, Positive ANA ~ my family doc seems to think some sort of autoimmune disease ~ kinda like Lupus, but a rheumatologist said it couldnt be as Im positively not a female, so they termed it Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. Kind of like your body is allergic to itself.
Dr. B said that patients who are autoimmune (the immune system is in overdrive fighting off everything it can find) tend to form scar tissue alot more than a normal regular patient.
Nice to know, esp if you were facing major surgery.
If ya can, email me and we can talk over TTS/PF

Take Care
Mike

Mike - I wasn't aware that Lupus only affects females - is this true?

Lupus can also affect males although the majority of lupus victims are female.

Thanks Dr Ed - when I thought about it...all of the people I've ever heard of with Lupus have in fact been female...but I had no idea that it seemed to usually not affect males. Why is that - does any one know?
