I previously had s urethral sling inserted by my Gyno when I had a hysterectomy & bladder reconstruction. My I had two Durashere injections to my Sphinxter during the following 18mths. My Dr retired. Five years after my surgery I went to see Dr Denison about another Durasphere procedure. Dr Denison told me I needed another urethral sling - that urethral slings has unprivec & she had great success with the one she recommended - had performed numerous surgery inserting this specific sling. I schedule surgery & was having this procedure via s spinal an aesthetic. I picked up the reports of all my testing the day before & noticed the issue of a very large cyst on my Kidney rated & F2. Dr Denison didn't know I had the reports & the day of the surgery told me there was nothing on any of my reports. I was taken to the operating room & when Dr Denison walked in the room you could tell she was utterly surprised that I was fully awake & hadn't also been given some twilight medication. With Dr Denison was a Drug Company Representative (in her regular street clothes, no surgical mask, etc.,). The Drug Rep was there to assist Dr Denison in inserting a brand new type of Urethral Sling - one Dr Denison had never used before. She LIED to me when she previously told me she was inserting a Urethral Sling that she had inserted many times previously & had good results. Well the surgery went bad & I could not utinste & was in extreme pain for three weeks. I sat on the toilet most of the time because of the tremendous urged I felt to urinate but I was unable to. I was told to self Catherine myself - are they bloody kidding me. I was a Consukrabt for a high tech large company & my time was billable - I lost my job as I was unable to work. Three weeks later I required a second surgery to loose the urethral sling Dr Denison had inserted.I couldn't believe it when they kept sending me bills for my portion of the second surgery that was required because of her error. Dr Denison comes across as the kindest sweetest person but don't be fooled by it. When I asked her about the large cyst on my kidney she told me that I would have to see another Urologist in the practice, that they could not just remove the cyst, & that I would need my kidney removed. Stated that the cyst was an F2 which meant it could become cancerous. I went to another Urologist (outside the practice) & discovered what she told me about the F2 cyst was incorrect. I didn't need my Kidney removed & the cyst was rated an F2 was because of the size of the cyst DON'T go to this Doctor.
I suffered from terrible stress incontinence which was controlling my life. After her very successfu, very easy sling surgery, I now control my life. Crossing my legs when I sneeze is a thing of the past. Hoping no one notices that I've peed my pants is also in the past. I adore this woman and the control she has given back to me. I highly recommend her. She also has a tremendous bedside manner.
With a rocky medical history, I have seen many physicians in various disciplines. Dr. Denson is at the top in every way. She is an astute diagnostician, articulate in explaining things to patients. She's has a calm, kind bedside manner. Discussing urogynecological issues is not the easiest subject for conversation, but her demeanor is kind and caring and makes talking with her much easier. Professionally, she gave comprehensive options for the established diagnosis. I have never been to a doctor so courteous and eager to bring relief and longterm solution to the existing medical complaint. She is respected by her staff and having a hospital administration background, I'm aware that is the "litmus test" for scoring a physician's care.
