Dr.Sinervo truly saved my life. I had recurring catemenial pneomothorax and other issues do to endometriosis for years. Dr.Sinervo chose the best solution for me after having had other procedures by others physicians that did not help. When he went in to do the surgery he discovered another issue where the endometriosis had caused my diaphragm to rupture. Dr.Sinervo was so great at explaining the situation and getting me the best cardio thoracic Dr to fix that issue. He even made time to see me before that surgery and pray with me. There really couldn't be a better doctor than Dr. Ken Sinervo. I thank him so much for giving me my life back.

DR. Sinervo and the entire CEC staff have been such a blessing to me. They genuinely care about their patients. When they say they are there for you they mean it. When I developed an issue after returning home they worked with the physicians here to make sure I was receiving the best care possible. They educated myself and my husband about tests, procedures, etc. When things did not work out with the physician here they stepped up to take care of me in Atlanta. The entire staff has made sure I am comfortable during the entire process. Dr. Sinervo has been incredible at keeping myself and my husband informed. He cares for his patients and it is apparent we are a priority. I will forever be grateful to him and the staff at the CEC for making sure I am able to get my life back. I know I am free of endometriosis since Dr. Sinervo was able to check during my last surgery. I can definitely tell the difference already and am happy to say I no longer experience any of my former endometriosis pain. My only wish is that I would have found him sooner! But I am excited to get back to my active lifestyle very soon!

I am 5 days post-op and feeling better than I have after any of my previous endo related surgeries, performed by other doctors over the past 7 years. Dr. Sinervo was referred to me by one of his former patients; and for me, it was like the difference between having my life back or continuing to let my endo take everything good from me in my life on a daily basis. Dr. Sinervo almost sounded too good to be true; I was almost too scared to even get my hopes up- especially after numerous of doctors/specialists, 20 years of pain, multitudes of misdiagnoses, days of unnecessary picking and prodding like a lab rat, 2 un-successful surgeries, etc. From the moment I spoke with Dr. Sinervo on the phone directly to my post-op appointment with him less than just 48 hours ago, I've felt nothing but confidence in his ability to get me back to the person I was before endo took control of my life. His professionalism is unparalleled; his compassion is genuine; his ability to connect as a male in this field, rare. He took every precaution necessary or thinkable in making my surgery (pre, during, and post) the most effective and successful as it could be. He took the time to explain my procedures and conditions to me in terms I could understand and allowed me the opportunity to ask questions. I never once felt rushed or pressured; he allowed me the time I needed and never showed any sign of impatience (and I know he's a busy man). I felt like he was genuinely interested in me as a patient; he was personable and animated- what I value in a provider (some appropriate, candid humor is much more appealing than a monotone robot). Both me and Dr. Sinervo feel very optimistic about my prognosis post-op; and as I've already mentioned, I'm already feeling much better than I have at this point compared to previous surgeries by other providers to treat the same conditions(s). I have more hope than I ever have, and there is great joy in the confidence within Dr. Sinvero's statement of "the endo is finally gone". I expect a new life now, and feel good about it. If anyone reading this has never had this type of surgery before, gas pain is completely normal (but it feels like Dr. Sinervo's staff are fully prepared to help manage this better than any others I have encountered). Recovery is going well so far- and this is coming from someone who has been told in the past 1.5 years by 4 different doctors that I was going to have to have a hysterectomy ASAP. I did NOT have a hysterectomy- and I think I'm finally going to have my life back- at the end of this recovery (I will have to do the recommend pelvic floor PT for full pain elimination- something no other doctor, except for Dr. Sinervo, had taken the time to explain)- all thanks to Dr. Sinervo. I am forever indebted. Jet

My mother and grandmother both had to have hysterectomies with intestinal resection in their thirties due to severe endometriosis. My symptoms started at 13 years old. Luckily, my incredible mother did her research and found Dr. Sinervo. During my first appointment with him at fifteen years old, it was decided that I would need to undergo surgery. I was a very hormonal and terrified teenager. The process of endo surgery (pre, during, and post) is not glamorous and quite overwhelming, especially for such a young child. However, going through the process, I don’t believe there is a single person in the world that could have been as comforting and reassuring as Dr. Sinervo. I had previously been seen by a myrdiad of gynecologists, including pediatric specialists. None had such a reassuring bedside manner as him. The day of my surgery, I was incredibly nervous. I was heavily sedated once in the surgical area but Dr. Sinervo still asked if I would like to hold his hand and pray. This is a memory I have spoken of for years. Apparently, when I woke up and spoke to him, the first thing I asked was, “will I be able to have kids?” I remember asking again at a post oppointment. This has always been so important to me. I am now 21 years old and am coming to the end of my undergraduate pre-veterinary medicine education. I have worked 3 physical jobs consecutively throughout my undergraduate education. My life was completely changed by the surgery that Dr. Sinervo performed. I have been able to function normally throughout my periods since my surgery. If it weren’t for this change, I’m not sure I would have been so successful. I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life as I am confident that my reproductive health has been in the best care. I would highly recommend Dr. Sinervo to any patient struggling with endometriosis. I am so thankful for him and my mother for so uniquely and expertly guiding me through this treatment in the midst of my teenage angst. I look back on this experience with only positivity.

After suffering for 5 years and undergoing 7 unsuccessful surgeries I found Dr. Sinervo and The Center for Endometriosis. In June of 2018 I had the remaining endometriosis removed along with a partial vaginectomy. It took me a lot longer to heal than I had anticipated, but with the help of Pelvic Floor PT and patience of Dr. Sinervo and his staff I am FINALLY so much better. Dr. Sinervo literally saved my life! I had spent years not able to work full time or be a present Mommy to my precious 5 year old little girl. Dr. Sinervo changed all of that! I just can't thank him and his staff enough! Yes, it is true he will pray with you and your family in pre-op and then he holds your hand as the anesthesiologist puts you into a comfortable sleep. I have never had a nicer and more caring Dr and would recommend him to ANYONE who has endometriosis issues. I even jokingly asked him if I could just keep him as my all around general Dr. There needs to be more Dr. Sinervos in the world, but I am so blessed that I found the one and only and that he took me on as a patient.

Dr Kenny Sinervo has more knowledge about Endometriosis than any other doctor we have tried to make appointments to see. He also performed surgery on my daughter. It has been 8 months since and she only needs an advil on the 1st day of her menstrual cycle. No more over bearing pain for the 1st time in 9 years of suffering. Thanks Dr Sinervo.

Dr. Ken Sinervo restored my life back to high quality in Ohio!! Eight years ago, after seeking advice from local surgeons who wanted to give me a full hysto, I prayed for an answer. I ended up on the www and went straight to his website. I called his office the next day and explained my insurance would change in 6 days and my endo would be pre-existing and not covered. He personally talked to me over MY lunch hour, told me to overnight my med records, he would review and he would call me back the next day. He said he could help me and within 4 days, I flew to Atlanta, had surgery, and recovered beautifully. This man is a soldier of God, prayed with me before and after surgery. I came out of surgery not needing pain meds and a partial hysto. Prior to surgery, I would take 10-12 Tylenol a day and eventually took Percocet. I couldn't walk most days. Eight years later, I still have a very active, wonderful life. This man restored my life. I cannot thank him enough. If you have endo or adno CALL HIM!!!

Dr. Sinervo is a Godsend. After two surgeries in 10 weeks, I was in so much pain. My gyno thought my pain was constipation and sent me to numerous "experts" to rule out "X-Y-Z". The fact is he had no clue. That's when I came to CEC. Dr. Sinervo performed an exploratory LAPEX. He found stage 2 endometriosis in multiple places (which my gyno said he got only a year prior). It has been a little over a year since my surgery with Dr. Sinervo. Although, I cannot say I am perfect (due to other autoimmune diseases), I am so much better than when I went in for my surgery! The only thing I regret is not going to see him earlier for him to do my hysterectomy to begin with... I honestly believe that if he did my hysterectomy, I would not have had to have three surgeries in a year. Thank you Dr. Sinervo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
