I would certainly like to know if there are other surgeons besides Dr. Cook in California. I say this because I would like to see an up to date testimony by a patient of Dr. Cook or someone else in the area. There is Cedar Sinai Medical Center, and some large teaching type hospitals there. You hear and read everyting about adhesions, so how do you know what is true and what is not. For example, Celebrex is supposed to help reduce adhesions. But this drug is supposedly off the market. Yet a study says taking high doses of Celebrex jut before surgery and for a couple weeks afterwards helps reduce their chances of coming back. So if this is the case, why not take Celebrex? I think as responsible and concerned patients we need to ask these questions.
