Monica G's Story

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen

“Dr. Katzen explained the procedure completely to me and answered all questions. He took his time with me and I did not feel rushed what so ever. I had surgery on Dec. 9, 2005. He did a lower body lift along with liposuction on thighs. I spent 4 days in the hospital. I had an On-Q pain pump put in at surgery time. This made a major difference in my recover. This pump delivered a constant line of local anesthetic (a pain numbing medication) and delivers it through a small specially-designed tube directly into the surgical incision site. The medication is delivered continuously and slowly for up to five days after surgery. When I checked out of the hospital Dr. Katzen re-filled the pain pump. So I had another 5 days of constant pain control without the narcotic effects of oral pills. I have visited Dr. Katzen every 7 days since surgery. He has been available via phone the entire time. I have found his office to be helpful and informative. Moreover very understanding of the emotions and physical needs post surgical patient.”
