I lived with this disease for 15 years, went through 5 surgeries and countless other hospital stays, Dr. Sinervo is truly the most skilled surgeon I have ever had and his bedside manner does not compare to anyone else. His staff is so helpful, kind and compassionate too. I have been pain free and well for 5 years now. He is truly a blessing.

After being diagnosed with endometriosis I then traveled to the CEC to have excision surgery with Dr. Sinervo. I was told that they had a 95% success rate. The surgery did not take long but the hospital care was below par as I came down from recovery in tears because of the pain and no one seemed to care. Anyway, surgery was done and what I thought would be the end of my pain and endometriosis was only the beginning. Not only did I get no relief from the surgery, my pain and symptoms got even worse. After 3 months post op I told his staff that I felt worse and the response I got from Dr. Sinervo was that I likely had adenomyosis and that was probably the cause of the majority of my pain all along. Oh...and I just needed a hysterectomy. This simply was NOT true as I went on to have 4 more surgeries. I still had endometriosis and even worse, I now had severe adhesions. Including intestinal ones that caused me pain and difficulty eating for the next six years! I finally sought out a different specialist who was able to clean up a lot of the adhesions and remove the endometriosis which was indeed causing most of my pain. I would not recommend Dr. Sinervo as I felt my continued pain and suffering was completely dismissed following having had surgery there.

Dr. Ken R. Sinervo's response
We are disappointed to learn of your negative experience, and hope that your symptoms have improved with your subsequent care. It is so unfortunate you felt dismissed, as that is never our goal; we seek only to provide compassionate, collaborative, multidisciplinary care to all of our patients and always want to help however we can. It appears we did not achieve that goal in your case, which is regrettable. Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions; we know it is critically important to hear from those who have come to our Center for treatment, so that we may learn from their feedback in order to continue improving the care we deliver. We genuinely wish you the best and pray for your relief from this disease.

Dr. Sinervo is amazing! I am forever grateful to him for helping me regain my health. I am 4 weeks post-op for laparoscopic excision of endometriosis and feeling much better than I have in years. Dr. Sinervo and the CEC staff are kind and compassionate. I felt very well cared for during surgery and post-op care. Thank you Dr. Sinervo for helping women fight this terrible disease!

This dr has done so much for me. I was suffering excruciating pain from endometriosis for years and became very underweight due to being unable to keep food down because of the pain. I used to go unconcious because the pain was so bad. I was unable to sit up, I was bedridden for years, in the hospital constantly. I had so many surgeries prior to seeing him without relief, tried so many different medications and my pain just continued to get worse. We decided to drive about 35hrs to see him (I could not be in a airplane and sit) He has been the most compassionate, skilled and knowledgable Dr I have ever met. I had excision surgery with him removing my endometriosis and am now no longer having any endometriosis pain thanks to him. Dr Sinervo was very caring and understanding about how bad my pain was and was there for me supporting me and giving me hope that it would get better. Seeing Dr Sinervo was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I highly reccomend seeing him.
