I have heard that Dr. Andrew Cook in Los Gatos, California, operates on patients with adhesions.  I believe his primary surgical expertise is operating to clean up endo.  If anyone has had adhesion surgery with Dr. Cook, we would appreciate hearing from you.   I have had horrific adhesion since a botched laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy in 2004.  I have been hospitalized twice for bowel blockages, but have not had another surgery.   So, if you have any information of Dr. Cook in California, please email. Thank you. Sally

Here is my follow-up

I spoke to a secretary for Dr.  Semertzides and if you send all of your information he can review them and then you can have a telephone consult for $200.  I am not sure if this is reasonable or not.  If he is good then I don't have any objection to coming down there.

I am planning to check with Dr.  Gerhardt.  I think he does much of the same thing as Dr.  Redan and may be a little closer than Florida.  Dr. Redan's assistant recommended Dr.  Gerhardt if I wanted someone closer. For Pete's sake, I wish there was someone in California or anywhere on the West Coast.  Dr.  Redan requires patients to be there for a week.  If he operates on a Thursday, he would like to see them on the following Tuesday.  Then one could fly out of there.  You need to bring a friend and then buy 2 airline tickets, etc.  I am not saying you could make some sort of vacation out of it, but you could.

Once again, I am looking for long term results from either of them or anyone.
