The laparoscopic repair performed by Dr Tsuda has left me in chronic pain and sexual dysfunction in the right testicle. Also, when I excercise there is swelling in the pelvic area from the mesh and hardware. It's been 3 years since the surgery. Excercise is ruined and sex is very painful. Most definately would not recommend!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Dr Tsuda when I came to your office I was broken in spirit and you and your staff changed my life I was overweight disgusted and after my weight loss surgery I went from 285 pounds to 165 pounds. Now I'm ready for my Vera Wang wedding dress thanks to you. Regina Gueary

Dr Tsuda and his staff (Beverly and Renee) provided me vip 5 star treatment. The amount of care and respect they all show to a patient is over and beyond what anyone could wish for. Dr T waited outside my preop room and walked up with me into the OR. Talk about showing your patient your 100% about them. Best dr ever and my best decision ever...Kristin K
