    How was your appointment with Dr. Kalava?

    Oct 25, 2022
    For six years I suffered episodic, likely MS related, burning stabbing pounding dagger-like pain, level 9-10 on the pain scale. Several specialists told me it was something I’d have to live with. I had all but given up, my pain was most likely from the pudental nerve, and basically untreatable. On my very first visit, Dr Kalava diagnosed the correct nerve and gave me a local block, that completely eliminated my pain for several hours! A first! We couldn’t find anything that lasted longer than 48 hours. After a five hour episode of level 10 pain landed me in the ER on a Thursday, he saw me on Friday, set me up with a unique indwelling abdominal catheter that delivered ropivicaine directly to the nerve and then got an incredibly busy surgeon to schedule nerve resection on Tuesday!. He’s always gone the extra mile and never gave up on me. I call Dr Kalava my own personal miracle worker. I wish all doctors were as dedicated as he is to solving the problem!
