I wanted to let you know how incredibly well the surgery worked for me. As you know, I'd been dealing with chronic groin pain for about ten years and never found anything that alleviated the discomfort. Over the years I had two different courses of physical therapy, a stretching program, a series of cold laser treatments and also some ultrasound therapy none of which had any lasting effect. I'd finally given up and resigned myself to just having to live with the problem. That is until I heard about the procedure you do which releases the damaged tendon from the bone. I was skeptical at first, but after speaking to you and another orthopaedic surgeon (Dr. Rod Wigle in Bend, Oregon) I was convinced to go ahead and have the surgery and the results have been nothing short of spectacular. A few easy hours in the hospital for the outpatient procedure and that evening I was on crutches for a total of about 2 hours and realized I didn't need them and never used them or any other type of walking aid again. I never needed pain medication stronger than Tylenol and that was only for a day or two. And within a couple of days I was easily able to climb stairs and resume virtually all my normal activities. The best part was 10 days after the surgery I was able to ski again and 2 weeks after that I was back riding my 900 pound motorcycle. You've truly given me my life back. I'm 72 years old, but feel like I'm 20 years younger. It's amazing!
