I had my right side external styoidectomy surgery done by Dr. Mark Delacure of NYU Langone Hospital in NYC 9 weeks ago. My first surgery was in PA and the ride back wasn’t bad but I wanted to be closer to home if needed for post op issues. Dr. Delacure’s team is very responsive and will get back to you within an hour or so if you have any post-op issues or worry.
His approach is slightly different then that of the PA surgeon but I am happy with the results (full disclosure - happy now that I am 9 weeks post op. The incision and nerve pain was very painful for weeks. Both surgeries had similar pain.)
The pain management was much better in the recovery room in NY while the PA team was very quick to move me along and out. Also, the PA surgeon only does the surgery on one day each month, which would have pushed me back two months for an opening. The NY surgeon can book you with the next available opening.
Dr. Delacure understands ES and is compassionate. If you do see him, tell him Teresa from Brooklyn said hello.
All the best!
