I was suffering from reduced jaw opening and in constant severe pain. Until I met Mr Cascarini, I was beginning to suffer at work and avoiding social get togethers. He gave me the confidence that he could help me. I’m now 4 weeks post-surgery, having had an arthroscopy with BMAC and I am so grateful to Mr Cascarini, his surgical skills and knowledge regarding the TMJ is unquestionable. My recovery process is still in its early days, but I am now relatively pain free, sleeping at night and my jaw opening has doubled, thus allowing me to eat.
Although the surgery is quite involved, I found the whole process (including the surgical recovery) much more straightforward than I had anticipated. This really didn’t feel like a ‘car crash’ surgery: but rather a highly controlled, and relatively pain free one. I attribute this to Mr Cascarini’s skill and gentle approach. I would recommend that anyone suffering from similar jaw problems seek advice and trust Mr Cascarini’s informed opinion: he is conservative in approach and I trust that he would not recommend surgery lightly.
I didn’t really have any choice but to have the operation as I couldn’t continue as it was. It sounded pretty dramatic when it was explained to me what was to be done and was rather more than I expected (I thought the tumour would just be removed) but in fact it has turned out very well. I wouldn’t hesitate to commend Mr Cascarini for the way he did this and the operation has been a real success. Others, if concerned, needn’t be if my experience is anything to go by.
My jaw is now feeling so much better! I can eat fully now which is amazing and I no longer have the worry of my jaw locking again. Overall, I have been so grateful for the care, advice and treatment Mr Cascarini has given. My case was not a simple one and he was determined that I would be “fixed: one way or another”. I can’t recommend him enough and on top of all of the professionalism he is a genuinely nice guy!
I had suffered with problems with my jaw for years, I was always told it would be fine or it would fix itself. I had very limited opening of my jaw, which limited what I could eat, so I decided I could not wait, and I sought out urgent help. I would suggest those with TMJ problems to seek help with Mr Cascarini and his team sooner rather than later.
