University Hospitals Suburban Green Road are involved in a general hoax of abdominal wall pain neurectomies - where nerves become inflamed after abdominal wall procedures or sports injuries, overuse of abdominal wall muscles, etc.  The nerve becomes inflammed and is removed - now through an endoscope. 

General hoax to remove the anterior abdominal wall nerves, which Dr. Stellato should long ago have said & done something about this, as some of his surgeries have led to this problem and he just then 'calls the South Euclid Police to remove, or threaten, the patient.'  It's treated with an injection of 2% lidocaine, not neurectomy. Kaiser Hospitals/Clinics have written the papers on this problem, and have all the codes for the correct treatment.  One wonders what Dr. Stellato is being paid to not say anything, per each unnecessary neurectomy with common mass closure deformity.

Mayo Clinic takes the nerves out and uses a common mass closure technique to close.  This 'technique' is also used to close all portholes from endoscopic procedures.  These common mass closures leave abdominal wall deformities that all rupture after 3-5 years.  This leads to a mesh repair procedure = more business for Dr. Michale Rosen and company in the UH Hernia Center.  It's an unending sequence of a farce of surgeries for nothing, with Dr. Stellato refusing to develop a layered repair procedure in at least select patients.  This would led to a Surgical Chair given the scope of the problem, the scope of the endoscopic procedure problems. 

Thomas Stellato MD, Medical Director, is a former Chief of General Surgery at University Hospitals.  He has known of the problem - that Mayo Clinic and other places will unnecessarily remove abdominal nerves, do unnecessary procedures & closures for resident practice - and he has said nothing.  At Mayo Clinic you can get this 'neurectomy' tacked onto your general bill; they don't have to have patient consent or discuss.  At University Green Road Dr. Stellato should have set up a program to (1) provide correct diagnosis, (2) provide correct non-surgical treatment, and (3) repair any procedures for unnecessary neurectomy. 

Dr. Michael Rosen, UH Hernia Center, knows of the problem, and has sent cases back to Dr. Stellato for repairs.  Dr. Rosen, internationally known for hernia surgeries, can also tack this procedure onto his bills - and has not said anything about condemning it.  He doesn't like Dr. Michael Sarr at Mayo Clinic, but does nothing to stop his frauds.  But he has looked to Dr. Stellato for repair advice as a more senior surgeon experienced in layered abdominal wall repairs - and none has been given although patients have requested the repair.

University Green Suburban needs to have Dr. Stellato set up a program for anterior abdominal cutaneous nerve surgery repairs, and to stop the unnecessary neurectomizing of abdominal nerves for Mayo Clinic building funds.
