Piriformis syndrome is sort of a topic that’s near and dear to my heart. It’s an operation that I developed approximately a decade ago, 2011 was the first piriformis surgery muscle removal that I performed. And since that time I’ve performed over 400 of these operations, which is by far and away the most of anyone in the world. And I have patients now that come from all over the world to have this condition treated. It’s an operation that’s a lot of fun, patients do great, patients that actually have piriformis syndrome, you remove their piriformis muscle, they’re cured; their pain will be gone.
