I hope you and your staff are safe and well during these unusual times. I wanted to check in with a quick update and let you know that its been a little over a year since surgery and I’m about 95% injury-free. Over the past 6 months, I’ve been doing stretching, tissue work, and cardio on a daily basis and the area continues to improve, especially after pushing it beyond the previous point and giving it recovery time to then build back up again.
At this point, I’m almost completely restriction-free and while I can still “feel” the area, I wanted to make sure I communicated how grateful I am to be able to workout, run, jump, skate, and get back to my passion of playing ice hockey goalie. I’m just getting back into games which should be the final hurdle to fully returning to my active lifestyle since the injury 2+ years…
“Hope you and your family and staff are doing well in these difficult times. I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with my inguinal hernia surgery repair. It was 2 years ago yesterday and I feel 100%. No pain, no limitations. Of course, as you said, nothing can replace God’s handiwork, but you sure came close! Your staff was incredible as well, and Belinda at the front desk really made everything work, and you were all so very patient with my anxiety and fear. Stay safe up in the Bay Area, I know we all have a challenging road up ahead of us, let us come back from this all a bit smarter, stronger, and kinder.”
Dr. Brown, I am 2.5 years late, but I wanted to send you a thank you card. You changed my life with your professional ability and human touch when you successfully fixed my 20 years of pain with the surgery.
Hi Dr. Brown,
I hope you are well.
Today I completed the Philadelphia Marathon with my daughter. It was a wonderful event and something that we had talked about accomplishing for a long time.
In September of 2018, you repaired my sports hernia. Thank you so much for giving me back my ability to run again. I feel very fortunate to have met you and to have had the opportunity to fly out to Fremont to have you operate on me. I’m fortunate not only for your skilled hands but for the warm and caring way you treated me.
This email of gratitude is long overdue!
The world is a better place because of people like you.
I have undergone inguinal hernia surgery – NO MESH! – with Dr. William Brown in Fremont, California on October. I had been looking for the best hernia surgeon – NO MESH ! – on the planet for almost 2 years. Finally I found him in the person of Dr. William Brown III, M.D. which is second to none, nobody comes even close!!!
I was consulted by doctors from all over the world from Vienna- AKH, Austria (Professor Michael Gnant and Dr. Franz Felberbaue) and USA (NY Langone Professor Steven Hofstetter), Stonybrook Shouldice specialist, Samer Sbaiy. I had contacted No Mesh specialists from Shouldice hospital from Canada, Dr. Mohan Desarda from India, Dr. Kevin Petersen from Las Vegas and Dr. Kang from Seoul, South Korea. I had heard horrific stories about disasters created by meshes. J. N. declared to me that: “I do not want even my enemies to go through…
Dear Doctor Brown.
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule and time from your Sunday morning and family to see Joshua. We really appreciate your time in your professional opinion regarding Joshua’s injury. Conveying not only the situation but the potential surgery in terms we can easily understand. Josh definitely has a greater understanding of his injury thanks to your examination and discussion. We cannot thank you enough.
