It's hard to say who the best doctor is. I think you have to consider what approach you think is going to be the best for you and then go to the physicians who offer that particular approach. That would depend on your history and symptoms and what your diagnostic tests are showing. I don't know of very many docs in the US who do PNE surgery so you can narrow it down pretty quickly. Did you have an MRI? Do you know what triggered PN for you?

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

I have an mri of my pelvis. And no i do not know what triggered it and so do many other doctors. They just don’t know what was my cause. I’m stuck and want to know if Dr. Dellon, Dr. Hibner, or dr Conway can be of any help. So desperate

Hi pain4help,

As Violet mentioned, I don't think there is any way to determine who the best doctor is. The selection often depends on the kind of surgery you need, your gender (e.g., Dr. Conway might not do surgery on males, but I'm not sure), and, sometimes, financial issues (e.g., I don't think Dr. Dellon takes insurance). I would start by trying to determine which doctors do surgery on males. You might be able to figure that out on their websites. Then you could review the types of surgeries they do (that info might be available for some of the surgeons on the home page, but I assume you can also get that from calling their office), and then you could try to decide which surgery would be best given the nature of your pn and any other pelvic issues you might have. Have you been working with a doctor or a physical therapist who could help you with some of these decisions? Have you already tried some of the more conservative options (e.g., lifestyle changes, medications)?

Last I knew, Dr. Conway and Dr. Hibner treat males but Dr. Hibner does not. But like April said, you should check with them because things can change.
