Operated at the wrong place. Had no problem with anything where he operated. Still have hernia. The hernia is 5" from the place he operated. There was no marking of the spot before operating. If the marking of the spot had taken place before surgery you can bet I would have spoke up loud and clear. Went home after surgery but the next day was taken back to hospital by rescue squad. Never found out just what caused the infection that put me back in the hospital. Also came out with red spots on...

Dr Desselle performed my thyroidectomy 10 yrs in Baton Rouge. He did an awesome job, was very careful, considerate and did a very nice job suturing me up. My scar is very visible
