Life Threatening Sinusitus Turned Around With Surgery

LIFE THREATENING SINUSITUS TURNED AROUND WITH SURGERY

“Approximately 26 years ago I was operated on by Dr. Michael Setzen. From the official records my diagnosis was: “Pathology” – in the form of a right frontal sinus mucocele which had eroded the posterior wall of the frontal sinus with involvement of the brain coverings. This was an extremely “life threatening” sinus condition which necessitated surgery that lasted for approximately “15 hours”. Since I had severe bronchial asthmatic, Dr. Setzen enlisted the skills of several specialists during the operation. Due to the severity of this case, Dr. Setzen used a neurosurgeon, an opthamologist, and a pulmonary specialist. These specialists were there to assist in case there were unforeseen complications after the sinus area was exposed. This showed me what a “thorough and careful” surgeon Dr. Setzen was, so as to have things in place if the need should arise. When the surgery was successfully completed, Dr. Setzen told me that the infection was so close to the brain that within a week, I would have been dead. I thank GOD and Dr. Setzen’s skills for saving my life. The results were miraculous. I am now “73 years old” and in wonderful health and the previous condition which caused this “life threatening” infection has NEVER returned. Dr. Michael Setzen is also a plastic surgeon and my facial scarring is to a minimum. ******I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. MICHAEL SETZEN. HIS SURGICAL AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS ARE OF THE HIGHEST CALIBER. ****”
