Just today I had my first surgery. I had a cholestiatoma which required a timpano-mastoidectomy. The removal of the mastoid bone behind the ear, removal of the 3 small hearing bones, and a complete rebuild of the inner ear with cartilage grafting and hardware. (No small surgery) Here is my review. DR. Thedinger did my surgery.
I was very nervous because I have never been through general anesthesia. The staff instantly puts you at ease and ALL of them know what they are doing. The facility is comfortable and clean. If you are having any fear of surgery.... please put that to rest. I remember talking to the anesthesiologist about what I did for a living and boom.... lights out. I woke up in what seemed like 1 single second but it was closer to a 2 hour surgery. When your under general anesthesia it's not like sleep. Even when you sleep there is a sense of circadian rhythm. A sense of time. When under general, time doesnt exist. It's a really neat experience.
I am a semi fit guy BUT cant say I'm healthy. I beat my body to exhaustion almost every day and never was one to go to a doctor. If I had as good of an experience as I did... I would be willing to bet yours, as a patient, will be even better. I woke up with no pain, I dont know how they do it but I feel great (for having a surgery) very sleepy but all around a great experience. I felt cared for and safe the entire time. You really cant beat this place when it comes to what they do. It sounds funny but I would go through it again no problem.
I hope this helps anyone reading this.
