Dr. Thomas Stellato terrorized medical students in the 1970s at University Hospitals - calling them names 'Scottie Dog,' or just screaming at a student/resident when he didn't get his way - which was every day. But this has carried into 2013, where he is the Medical Director at University Suburban Green Road Medical Center - Director of Wright Surgery Center.
In the 1990s, as Chief of General Surgery, at University Hospitals, Dr. Stellato was almost kind at times - but only if you contributed to his career.
Consulting him in the 1998, things became surgery or go away. In fact Dr. Stellato can't diagnose abdominal wall pain - that he causes - and treat with an injection of 2% lidocaine. He doesn't know Carnett's test, and doesn't try to properly treat abdominal wall pain before scheduling for surgeries. He's the Medical Director who knows nothing medical, and does nothing medical.
He will get rid of you, or call the South Euclid Police. Carol, his secretary, does nothing secretarial.
Dr. Stellato should be able to diagnose superficial abdominal wall pain, and either refer or inject the inflamed nerves. Dr. Stellato should be able to repair an abdominal wall closure in layers - and teach this - instead of the common mass closure. Stats show that the common mass closure all rupture. Which is scary for a woman patient - to have her abdominal wall rupturing because of guy suturing. Common mass closure closes all 3 layers of the abdominal wall in one messy gob that doesn't have any tension strength.
Could Dr. Stellato get a heart at 64? Or even just read the articles dropped at his office that detail the nonsurgical approaches? Michael Rosen MD has given him a challenge - to repair an abdominal wall closure that Mayo Clinic botched.
