Hi
Has anyone used this doctor? I was wondering if he would be a resource. I live in North Central Jersey and have been seeing docs in NYC,
but noticed this doc is here in NJ. It would eliminate the expensive parking fees etc. of traveling to NYC for treatment. If anyone has used this doc, or lives in NJ and has a good pelvic pain doc or pain mgmt doc could you please respond or PM me?
thanks very much!
Kathy

Hi
Thank you for the info..Its nice to know that some doc in NJ knows something about PNE. So Dr Cohen also does meds interventions as well? Thats great as I have been to various docs in the NJ NYC city area, and they were usually offering mainly blocks, with an attitude of (hey, maybe this will help? But at this point I could tell they were mostly guessing and selling us on an expensive block), Everyone's different but blocks have not been for me..
So the management with medicines for now,from a doc who listens would be more for me.
It sounds like he offers that. Thanks for posting, good luck and pls keep us posted on how you do!

hi, kathy. i did the nerve block yesterday, and i have to tell you i didnt feel that confident with his work or staff.
it was performed at his surgical clinic. dr.cohens staff , starting from his nurses to his anestheisologist were more like school interns.
i ask him and his staff, how would he would be able to make sure the injection would reach the pudendal nerve.
he said via a xray. that seem odd, because xrays are for bones. i was semi sediate, and i really didnt notice when the injection took place.
it was conducted like a nascar pitstop. i feel that he is really not concerned about pne patients. his pratices are conducted more like a business.
for your insurance can pay his services. i will not see him again. if you can please give me the information on any nyc doctor that can treat this condition , i would be more than glad. thank you so much.

P.S . and by the way i think he just hit muscle with the injection.

I'm sorry to hear your nerve block did not go as well as you had hoped. This is not a comment on Dr. Cohen but just for informational purposes the injection at the Ischial spine can be done with x-ray because the pudendal nerve runs very close to that bone where the ST and SS ligaments cross. It's not uncommon for docs to use fluoroscopy (x-ray) for nerve blocks at the Ischial spine and one advantage would be there is not as much radiation as with a CT scan.
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.

It seems many of us have to travel with this illness, unfortunately. Good luck in your search and keep us posted. ;)

Best,

Thanks, cancel 327

I am sorry you had this experience especially if you were somehow damaged by the injection and hope you are feeling better. Your input will help others assess whether to see him.

My own experience with nerve blocks was bad. Mine were guided by a cat scan. Both served the diagnostic function of confirming PN but alas did not appear to be providing any form of cure.

Bathsheba,

Where did you have your CT Guided Pudendal Nerve Block done?
I've been searching for a Doctor who can give me a diagnosis, so I don't feel crazy anymore.
frustrated & in pain,
