I love the care i have always received from everyone at upmc

February 20, 2017

Dr Sekula surpassed my expectations as a provider. I was very much a part of the decision process. I was calm and relaxed as I prepared for surgery

February 13, 2017

This was my 2nd MVD for hemifacial spasms, both with Dr. Sekula. I chose to return to him for the second surgery after a less than positive outcome because I had complete confidence that Dr. Sekula had done an excellent job the first time and would do everything humanly possible to help me this time as well. So far so good, over the past 5 days spasms have disappeared and I am cautiously optimistic that 2nd time was the charm for me.. His reputation as the best surgeon for this condition is well deserved.
