Hey Gmike, of course check out all your options. As far as Dr. Hollensbe he was the surgeon assisting during my surgery. He and a Dr. John Scott work as a team with the machine with Urology of Indiana. Had the surgery performed at Clarian North cannot say enough about those guys. Of course Dr. Scott is who I talked to before and after, upfront type of guy, and put it all out on the table.
The way I understand when Dr. Hollensbe is the lead surgeon, Scott is assisting him....heck of team in my book.
"Rip and Burn" had Hollensbe as lead during his surgery-hopefully he'll pop in here before too long.
