After 2 1/2 years seeing another doctor and dealing with a lot of pain I went to see Dr Matern. He fixed my problem with my ureter, which took over 6 hours in the OR. Problem was he couldn't find it from all the damage done by the prior doctor (I had a lot of scare tissue from the procedures done by the other doctor). Dr. Matern didn't give up and solved my problem. That was a couple of years ago. About a 1 1/2 years ago he did surgery to fix another issue. Everything is great. What he did to fi
