Well it seems like there are no more options left for me. For the last 2 and half years – since Dr. Brown mutilated me for absolutely no reason – I’ve been incapable of using my core, walk properly, breathe properly. I have sexual dysfunction, testicles that are deformed, etc. I am not a functional human being by any means.
I’ve been using the…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic Drs with good track records in open surgeries AND athletic pubalgia? in the forum Hernia Discussion 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Aside from Dr. Meyers who I think is the most known Doctor to deal with athletic pubalgia, is there any other notable Dr. out there that can deal with athletic pubalgia/injuries at the insertion and regular open hernia repairs/reconstruction? Preferably in the U.S (so not the one in Germany).
I have an appointment with Dr. Krpata in Cleveland to…[Read more]
PeterC replied to the topic Has anyone ever reversed a hernia repair – more specifically a modified Bassini? in the forum Hernia Discussion 3 months, 1 week ago
Dr. Brown sadly did not have a plan at all. He answered all my questions with what I wanted to hear then proceeded to do the exact opposite. He went against every single thing he said to me and my parents knowing that my entire career was riding on this and that I begged him to do the strict minimum and to approach it with tissue…[Read more]
PeterC replied to the topic Has anyone ever reversed a hernia repair – more specifically a modified Bassini? in the forum Hernia Discussion 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Thank you for the reply. I have recently seen Dr. Yunis and in his own words he said that what Dr. Brown did to me is ”f*cking nuts”. I do not think he fully grasped how impaired I am in my every day life and movement and I am not sure he was comfortable with surgically doing anything to me. I think he was more traumatized than I am…[Read more]

Has a surgeon previously reversed a Bassini (modified in my case) repair back to correct anatomical configuration of tissues? Is it something thats even possible?
After 29 months of suffering after getting a bilateral modified Bassini repair as a ”treatment” for Sports Hernia by Dr. Brown – I am at a point where I will either be in a wheelchair…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic What I learned after 5 years and 2 botched surgeries that ruined my life. in the forum Hernia Discussion 3 months, 2 weeks ago
I’ve been thinking of posting this for a while now. I don’t really sleep or do anything since Dr. Brown butchered me and I keep thinking about what I should’ve done different, known better etc. It genuinely keeps me up at night – every night. I figured maybe I would post this to help new patients with groin issues so that they can learn from my…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic Update on Dr. Brown surgery and the dangers of tissue repairs in the forum Hernia Discussion 3 months, 4 weeks ago
Hey ya’ll. So I’ve posted here many times about how bad I’ve been since getting surgery with Dr. Brown 2 years ago. The surgery completely released my entire core and groin ( I can’t flex it or condition it at all) and among other things I lost my career as a direct result of it and pretty much my entire life. In 28 months post-operation I have no…[Read more]

Hey everyone old and new. I’ve written on this forum plenty of times over the past 2 years so I won’t be too long. It was my birthday 3 days ago and as with every birthday it was a perfect time to remember that yet another year of misery has passed and a lifetime to go – thanks to the butcher himself Dr. Brown.
For those that are new – Dr. Brown…[Read more]

Hey ya’ll its me again. Yesterday marked 25 months since Dr. Brown permanently released my external obliques and by extension my entire abdominal wall. Picture on the left was me my entire life/before Dr. Brown operated on me and picture on the right was taken 5 minutes ago after 25 months of attempted…[Read more]
This morning I went to Dr. Brown’s website sportshernia.com only to see that the website now belongs to a new doctor I’ve never heard of, in a completely different city while still having the same exact content (advertising the same procedure, same recovery protocol from Dr. Towfigh, etc). Every trace of Dr. Brown has been scraped off the website…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic Today marks 2 years since my surgery with Dr. Brown in the forum Hernia Discussion 7 months, 3 weeks ago
I’ll try to keep this short. Two years ago I flew out from Canada to Fremont, California with my family to get surgery with Dr. Brown. I was a professional dancer with persistent groin pain after activity but I still went on hikes, to the gym and I was still working as a professional dancer. The last few projects I did before this surgery were…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic Patients are not safe in the current state of things in the forum Hernia Discussion 8 months, 2 weeks ago
As the title states – patients are not safe at all in the current state of things in the hernia/groin medical world when it comes to surgical procedures.
Think about it. A patient can take every precaution possible, take months to prepare themselves physically, research everything they can even though they’re not supposed to be doctors and they…[Read more]
2 weeks ago marked 22 months since I had a nightmare surgery performed on me by Dr. Brown where he caused critical structural damage to my core and maimed me for the rest of my life.
For those unfamiliar I’m a professional dancer that went to Dr. Brown with an overuse injury/chronic pain. Here’s me flexing before Dr. Brown (and my…[Read more]

This past week marked 20 months since I had life-altering surgery with Dr. Brown. I apologize in advance for a lengthy post. It’s been 20 months of useless attempts at regaining tissue/muscle function and a semblance of a normal life. I want to show through these updates to anyone new to having sort of groin issues that one bad…[Read more]
I’m posting this as a separate thread because its a separate discussion to be had.
For the past 5 years dealing with my groin injury, almost every doctor I had seen had asked for an MRI scan. They never found a single thing on any of the MRIs, no matter where I went or how expensive the scan was. I got 3 dynamic ultrasounds that found some stuff…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic False Narrative about the downsides of open/tissue repairs in the forum Hernia Discussion 11 months ago
As the title say – there is a false narrative about the cons of getting an open tissue repair floating around for the past few years whether it be for hernia repairs or sports hernias.
The information being circulated online/on forums/on official articles is that the main risks or open/tissue repairs are
1- Tightness/Risk of recurrence of…[Read more]
PeterC started the topic Open Tissue Surgeries/Repairs are not safe – a case in the forum Hernia Discussion 11 months, 1 week ago
Title says it all. I’ve had a mesh in me before (albeit it wasn’t your typical porous mesh so no tissue grew into it and it was placed high enough to be able to be taken out safely so it just slid back out when I took it out) but my tightness/weakness/discomfort was nowhere near as bad as since Dr. Brown butchered me.
I understand this is just…[Read more]

How can a doctor that touts itself as a core specialist carve out flaps of an abdominal muscle and think it will help the patient and can’t understand it will completely impair them for life?
How can you carve out flaps (meaning you have to cut against the direction of the fascia and free the fascia) and then overlap the 2 parts and think it…[Read more]

PeterC started the topic Preserving tissue/muscle function is more important than eliminating pain in the forum Hernia Discussion 1 year ago
This is a message for anyone on here with any groin pain/issue and considering surgery. If your doctor’s only focus is to eliminate pain at all cost – I would seriously reconsider having them as your doctor.
Pain is the body’s signal to let you know something is out of place or injured. Its the signal. Just like a car’s check-engine light. When…[Read more]
