A Nerve Doctor Changed My Life

I moved to Phoenix after finishing my surgical residency in Philadelphia.

I remember sitting outside in April, 1970, having dinner and thinking, This is it. I have to live here!

I got a job working as the sports doctor for a new basketball team called the Phoenix Suns.

I also built my clinic in Scottsdale.

I was busy. But something was missing.

About 30 years later, I attended a lecture by Dr. Lee Dellon, an MD, PhD from Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Dellon talked about how he was able to cure diabetic neuropathy using a surgical technique to decompress the patient’s peripheral nerves.

Nerves which had been damaged by eating too much sugar.

At that point, this was a heretic’s notion.

The common wisdom back then was that doctors did NOT perform surgery on diabetics.

Unless you were cutting off toes, feet, and legs.

In fact, each year, all over the world, about 1.5 million legs are amputated because most doctors don’t know what Dr. Dellon taught me.

The root problem is sugar, something our bodies were never designed to consume as we currently do.

Sugar destroys our nerves by compressing them.

Surgery can address that compression in the body’s lower extremities and elsewhere.

In other words, legs can be saved.

And diabetes, in many cases, can be alleviated by altering a patient’s diet away from sugar.

I’ve spent decades pursuing my research, performing this surgery over and over again.

It works.

Get rid of sugar in your diet.

If you don’t know how, ask me, and I’ll tell you.
