Sept of 2018 due to test results, I was referred to this doctor for possible adrenal tumor removal. She had the CT scans reviewed by two Radiologist who told her that there was a 70% chance that my tumor was cancerous and she agreed and said I should have it removed immediately. I submitted to her surgery, which started laparoscopic for two and a half hours, then reverted to open incision for another four hours. The tumor and gland were removed and lab tests showed there was no cancer. The problem was that in the process, she damaged a T- motor nerve and my side bulged out a great deal. When I questioned her about this defect, she replied that I'm sorry you didn't get the result you wanted. Out of my own pocket, I went to a Plastic Surgeon to try to reduce the bulge, but it is still there. I am now told that it is currently impossible to bring this muscle back to proper contour, because without a nerve telling it what to, it just relaxed. I wish I'd never let her operate on me!

Dr Opoko-Boateng was the surgeon who removed my thyroid. I would highly recommend her. She is very personable, and compassionate. Explains everything very plainly. And done a fantastic job of a difficult surgery. She is wonderful.

My 18 year old son had a challenging surgery and Dr. Oboku-Boateng knew what to do. Not only is she medically smart she has a wonderful bedside manner which meant a lot to an 18 year old boy who didn't sink he's be waking up from emergency abdominal surgery

I had a friend who had a successful operation under Dr. O-B. I believe her to be conscientious. However, for the sake of anybody considering her I must tell you that I went to see her for hernia repair. While under the knife, she punctured my bladder (or nicked it, as they put it); I had to stay overnight and was catheterized for twelve days. And charged the maximum my insurance would allow me to pay for the experience. I strongly recommend going to Boston or NYC for surgery if possible.
