Young Again With Mid-Life Changes!

By on June 22, 2009

"Guardian angels walk among us in many forms. In Pittsburgh, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and his fine staff bring the professionalism, kindness, caring and most of all, the advanced medical procedures that can change one's life for the better." "After twenty years of numerous medical problems, including three bouts with cancer, radiation, chemotherapy, a gastric bypass yielding a 200+ pound weight loss, my happiness was complicated by the weight of an enormous abdomen of sagging skin." "With much research for just the right doctor, with outstanding credentials, and years of experience that makes one comfortable in his knowledge", I knew Dr. Hurwitz could help me with the additional surgery needed to remedy this naggingly painful, sagging abdomen. Upon further testing, a hernia was discovered adding to the complications." "One knows, instinctivley, when you share your personal goals - whether the doctor who's listening to your story and looking through your eyes into your heart - if he can feel your pain and your anxiety of yet more required surgery. I saw his face...he reassured me of his abilities...I listened to his suggestions particular to my case...and in no time, plans were underway to begin correcting my situation." "Have no doubt, surgery went perfectly! Here I am, a mid-life woman, with yet another lease on life via the skills of Dr. Hurwitz and his team. Yes, healing takes time, but I had a role to play, in fact, I had a responsiblity to pair with these angels to physically, mentally and spirtually team with this staff to strive for a new, healthier me." "In this healing process, I was given infrared light therapy (considered experimental) to increase the blood flow to the most tender of the surgical areas where all the incisions meet. This infrared light therapy proved effective following surgery and I returned to my professional life." "My new lease on life, thanks to Dr. Hurwitz and his caring guardian angels, permitted me to walk three flights to my classroom throughout the day, exercise through walking DVD's, lift our precious new grandson and wear clothes comfortably - with belts!" "Currently, this mid-life body has been creating adhesions and some lumpy areas that have taken me back the Hurwitz family for more infrared light therapy. With multiple sessions, I am experiencing less pain, the lumps are softening and I am back to exercising with my walking DVD's." "I believe the Pittsburgh Center will continue to be part of my life as they begin their new rejuvenation spa area. I know that I've found an exceptionally talented doctor, a devoted staff that treat all whom enter with courtesy and concern and I feel a gratefulness that brings a smile each time I enter the serenity of the beautiful office setting with its artwork and music." "Finding Dr. Hurwitz and his staff brings to mind the words for George Eliot; "It's never too late to be what you might have been."" Respectfully submitted, Karen C.

I honestly never thought of myself as a serious candidate for elective surgery ... but I’m already feeling and looking so much better.* Jill's Story
