2017 – Grateful patient experiences quick recovery after robotic adrenal surgery

Year of procedure/evaluation: Robert Appelbaum

I had my adrenal gland removed robotically by Dr. Suh for the treatment of Cushing Syndrome. I cannot thank Dr. Suh and all the nurses, residents and doctors at Mt. Sinai enough. The experience as far as surgery is concerned was great. I was attended to by everyone in the nicest way possible. The surgery itself is relatively uneventful with some pain after surgery easily relieved by medication and in my case non-narcotic medication. I went home after two days and spent a week at home recovering. I am a 65 year old triathlete and I am training for ironman competitions and two weeks after the surgery I was back to swimming, bking and running this weekend albeit on a light, limited basis. This Saturday, three weeks after the surgery I am going to Italy. The team at Mt Sinai is not only fantastic but they are incredible nice. I cannot recommend them enough.
