Exceptional Surgeon of Genius

When I learned I had a brain aneurysm I made the rounds of a few top brain guys. But Dr. Peter K. Nelson was the one I chose; he, with a partner, invented and developed the devices for stenting wide-neck aneurysms, something that wasn't possible to do a few years before. The two-part aneurysm fixing procedures he did were not only safe and perfect - there was not one second of pain, ever. (With this kind of procedure, they make a small cut, the size of a little staple, at the top of your leg and weave the fiber optic camera thingy up to the top of your head. The cut doesn't hurt afterwards. ) He is exceptionally kind, a real intellectual, honest, and a man of such integrity that one instantly feels safe in his hands. He is deeply thoughtful ad also humorous. I later learned that he flies all over the country and the world (including China) teaching these new methods to hospitals. I had, and have, absolute confidence in this man's work. If you have an aneurysm, of course you'd be nervous, but see Dr. Nelson and his team. Your only problem will be the NYU hospital - technically they're top-class, but there is a brutal coldness among those in the recovery room, and among nurses and in the hospital atmosphere in general that is systemic and unpleasant and chilling. Still, you won't be there for long - up and out! But Dr. Nelson? Totally worth it.
