Re: Any Midwest recommendations??

Dr. Laurence Levine - Rush University Chicago
Dr. Tobias Kohler - Mayo Clinich Rochester MN
Dr. David Paolone - University of Wisconsin Madison

I'm sure there are others ... but these are the ones I am aware of. Dr. Levine did mine - no problems, works great.

Re: Traction devise?

Jato, My doctor recommended I use one prior to surgery, so I did. He has done at least one peer reviewed study showing some success in lengthening and straightening of the curve with the use of such a device. The problem is it takes a long time to work. I used mine regularly (every day) for about 6 ...

Re: Implant questions

Hi Davegb, Welcome to the forum. There is a wealth of knowledge on here if you take the time to find it. IMHO the most important thing you can do to increase your odds of success is to choose a really good implant surgeon. I'm not telling you not to consider a local guy ... but this procedure isn't ...

Re: I've officially joined the club

Congrats Oregon!

Next few days may get a little rougher ... but then it all get better from there. Take your time and rest the first week, don't do anything to get an infection. When you are all healed up you will love it.

Re: Transportation Services

Hey Jersey, I had the same issue. Try calling one of the local at-home care companies (Visiting angels, etc). If they have somene available they may take your business. (worked for me). Second suggestion is Care.com. Worked for me the second time. I've also taken a limo to and from surgery. They are...

Re: Advice week after surgery

I'd be a little concerned about not peeing. Most guys leave the hospital with a catheter. I'd call your surgeons office and talk to them about it just to be on the safe side.

Re: Revision Tomorrow: Titan One Touch

Interesting that you decided to make the switch to a One Touch (but with two Genesis failures - who can blame you?) I went with the Genesis because of all the OT sticky-valve complaints I've read on this site, plus it's a little smaller. Hoping the one touch works better for you ...

Re: Implant consultattion today

I love my Titan. It's an amazing solution to a difficult problem. Not perfect ... but amazing. The minor drawbacks pale in comparison to the benefits of a properly installed implant.
