Out-Patient Hysterectomy

When my Gyneco0logist decided I needed a hysterectomy I was referred to Dr. Demir. My husband and I went for a consultation. He spent an hour with us. We reviewed my history, he did and exam and Kara did an ultrasound. He recommended a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy and said he would do it Out-Patient. He gave us all kinds of information to review and we discussed it at the pre-op consultation. At that point I was nervous. My best girlfriend had a Robotic Hysterectomy and spent three days in Thompson Peak. He said I would be back to 75% of my "current level of functionality" within 6 - 10 days with this approach. He explained what "ERAS" was (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) and why it would be good for me. I had my surgery and was back to pretty much normal within eight days. I had little holes and they did hurt but they did not prevent me from living my life. Now my girlfriend is jealous she had her surgery Robotically.

Pain

I began seeing Dr. Demir in 2016. I was on high doses of pain medicine from my Pain Management doc. Pain Management never bothered to make a diagnosis. They just put needles in my back and gave me oxys. I was so tired all the time I could barely go to work 3 - 4 hours a day. Dr. Demir cared. he did tests, sent me to an Intestine Doc and did laparoscopy. He diagnosed endometriosis. I have been treated with Lupron. He has made me feel way better. he reduced my oxys to a point I can work all day. I am able to live my life again. I could not be happier. I hear about all the deaths on opiods and think that could have been me without Dr. demir and his staff. Thank you all !!

Presacral Neurectomy

I have had pain in my pelvis for years. I have had 17 surgeries including removal of my uterus. I have been on lupron five different times. Finally I was told to get a presacral neurectomy. I shopped for doctors for several months before I found Dr. Demir. Many doctors who said they treated endometriosis and pelvic pain could not do this procedure. Dr. Demir did my presacral neurectomy at Central Phoenix Surgery Center. I went home a little while afterwards. Three months later my pain is 80% reduced. For a chronic pain sufferer this is a Godsend. I am glad I finally found Dr. Demir.
