My story is as follows: After the birth of my daughter, I underwent a breast lift after many years (at 40). The healing of the scars, on both sides, in the breast crease was not as one would prefer a blanched wound healing. In some places the scar gaped apart and in other places thick bulges formed, outward. On the outer areas, on both sides ... several centimeters long ...the bulges, hypertrophic scars remained reddish, itchy and stinging for more than six years now. Numerous attempts to treat the scars (scar care creams/ointments, scar plasters, laser, ect) brought no improvement - but a lot of costs, which I had to bear.
I was told by the surgeon at the time that my wound healing was poor .... and that nothing could be done. I could not believe that for me, I did not want to, especially since I could not determine any problems in this regard with all my surgical interventions.
After several failed attempts to improve the scars in a conservative way, to reduce them, to calm them down, I slowly ran out of steam and the desire to invest even more in this.
I began to read a lot about the formation and development of hypertrophic scars, started to research whether there are doctors who are particularly dedicated to this and accept.
And so, through a lot of luck and coincidence, I found Dr. Gmelch's practice online and made an appointment for a consultation. I noticed right from the start that Dr. Gmelch took me and my concerns very seriously, listened to me and thus showed me a great deal of trust. At no time did he give me the feeling of being a hopeless case. Quite the opposite. Due to his high level of expertise, he is one who finally took care of the problem situation. The courtesy, kindness, confidence, effort, education and advice are what I (and many more out there) needed.
I am so glad he took care of me surgically once again, removing and resurfacing all the scars. The post-op aftersarge on how to deal with wounds in this delicate area is hugely important here. It was also taken care of that I get the right equipment for me.
I can say with the best conscience that Dr. Gmelch, in addition to the characteristics such as sympathetic, friendly, cordial, patient, humanly close, actively listening, taking people seriously, etc. etc. ........... is absolutely on the highest level of competence. Moreover, he is young and handsome :=)
I can only warmly recommend him to others, but also I will go to him again, if I need something from his field of expertise. That is clear!
MANY LIEBEN THANKS - there are directly missing the words
A miracle has happened, thanks to you dear Dr. Gmelch! A thousand times THANK YOU dear Dr. Gmelch. You have made my life worth living again after almost 2 years of continuous 24 hours of hellish nerve pain and preceded by 4 surgeries on this hand on 7/7/22. THANK YOU! Countless doctors told me I was the victim of malpractice and would have to live with this unbelievable horrible pain for the rest of my life. Then by great luck I finally found you and after only 5 minutes of talking to you it was clear, yes I put my hand in your young hands and everything will be fine! And so it was. After almost 6 hours of surgery with nerve transplantation (taken from the leg) I am back in life. Of course I still need patience for healing and many therapies after this long and difficult operation, but the agonizing nerve pain is gone and that is the most important thing!
I will be happy to talk to any patient who is interested and share my experiences, please feel free to pass on my contact information! All my family, friends, acquaintances, neighbors and customers, they all suffered with me, I should also say thank you from them!
All the best for a great career, you are not only a fantastic surgeon but a very special, warm and kind person
