Hello Fellow LLers,

I have decided to go to Pretoria for surgery. I could not believe how close I was about to select other doctor. This was not easy decision, agonizing over this for few months. Lost the motivation and hardly focus on anything...work, sports etc.  Believe or not I was calling Dr. M's office for surgery date just yesterday. One PM from Amatan (thanks Amatan) and Dr. B gracious posting to the forum aid to the decision.

My surgery is booked for June 4th. I am most likely to stay for entire lengthening period and insert titanium for faster consolidation and mobility. I may opt for second tibia surgery. Dr. B and I decided on wait and see approach.  I am planning to work remotely from Pretoria. I will have to see how that will pan out. If the telecommute does not work than I might come back after femur and do tibia later.

I been researching over this almost two years. I profiled almost all the best LL doctors and exchanged email with almost all around the world. I communicated to Dr. Rozbruch (consulted), Dr. Paley (email), Dr. M (consulted), Dr. Jamal, Dr. Lee, Dr. Guichet, Dr. Salemah and obviously Dr. Franz.  You can see I went around the globe on quest to find LL doctor that suits my  requirement  Cool Grin. I was determined to do this but was not sure when, where and how. The Korea Precise issue put me on hold for sometime as well  Embarrassed.

Now I made up my mind, thank goodness! I will be focusing next few months on stretching and following Precise diary to gain some perspective and what not. If you anyone wants to chat, ping me on Skype @ cooperlengthening.

Best wishes,
Cooper

Congrats copper!

So your getting precice 2 on your femurs? Also did dr b say anything about the precice 2 malfunction?

Was it just a set of bad devices dr lee got? Are you going to get any release surgery done?

Thanks for your diary!

We all will be following closely!

I will let dr.b decide on release. It may not be necessary but by all means I will go for it if he thinks necessary.

He has done about four non cosmetic precise and over 100s external. He is coming in Dallas to teach other doctor. If you want to interview him then may be good idea to catch him while he is in US.

But no one on here has gone to him yet or written a diary about him so if you'd like to be a pioneer or guinea pig, or which ever terms sounds better to you, I'd say go for it. He seems knowledgeable and the place seems professional and of high standards.

Also, if I remember correctly didn't Cooper end up cancelling his surgery with Dr Birkholtz because he doesnt have the time? Didnt he choose to do it in the States instead?
Feel free to correct me if Im wrong

Dr Birkholtz's price is roughly the same as Dr Jamal's as well

That's right I cancel my surgery with Dr. B. My work schedule currently will not permit more than few weeks out of the country. I end up cancelling going South Africa. I scheduled my surgery with Dr. paley and did consultation earlier this week.

I will be opening up new topic but only will do that after my surgery.

hi,I'm new here but have been thinking to do surgery with Dr. Birkholtz.
while i sent him X ray of my foot and have been asking some questions,he rarely answered my questions and replied.
i like to have surgery either on june or next march but it concerns me that weather he is like another Dr in UN whom UNICORN got surgery. . . (UNICORN said she is depressed after surgery because of her complication but he has been rather indifferent to do treat her)
i only find 1 diary for him and you went another so. . .

i know both doc are skillful but not sure Dr. Birkholtz is caring throughout lengthening . . .
i like to make journey but somehow i can't open and post so I'm sorry i write here(at least you talking about Dr. Birkholtz)
anyone who are interested in to get surgery with him?
