Don Bird underwent phrenic nerve surgery with Dr. Matthew Kaufman in November 2011.
...
According to Dr. Kaufman of The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, such a recovery is remarkable due to the fact that Bird's phrenic nerve was completely degenerated. Kaufman states that Bird's example, as well as others, has shown that "we have clearly demonstrated that the surgery works to reverse diaphragm paralysis, as well as the efficiency and safety of the surgery. Since 2007, Kaufman has performed this surgery on well over 100 patients from ages 9 to over 70 from around the U.S. and various other countries with an 80% success rate.
The phrenic nerve controls function of the diaphragm muscle - the primary muscle involved in breathing. Injuries to this nerve cause difficulties in breathing, as well as infection, such as dangerous bouts of pneumonia. Until now, treatment options for phrenic nerve injury have been limited to either nonsurgical therapy or diaphragm plication, neither of which attempts to restore normal function to the paralyzed diaphragm.
Kaufman, who also performs phrenic nerve surgery to free spinal cord injury patients from ventilator dependency, states, "Time and again, phrenic nerve patients are told they just have to live with the damage and restrictions. We have overwhelming evidence that is not the case."
Recently, Dr. Kaufman and colleagues published an article in the November 19, 2013 edition of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.

Five years later, however, Dr. Matthew Kaufman of The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction performed nerve decompression surgery, a special yet relatively simple procedure, that gave her back her life by treating her occipital neuralgia. Kristen experienced daily headaches that were so severe they often resulted in nausea and vomiting. She described the pain as predominately on the left side of her head resulting in sensitivity so severe she had trouble even touching the area, such as for brushing or washing her hair, and she never wore sunglasses.
"It was like fireworks going off inside my head," she said.
After years of visiting doctors from pain management specialists to neurologists and her family doctor she still found no relief from her headaches.
"I didn't even want to live," she said, adding that, I hit a breaking point."
Following her surgery and recovery, Kristen wrote a detailed and emotionally moving letter addressed to her surgeon, Dr. Matthew Kaufman, which concludes:
"Dr. Kaufman, I will forever treasure the gift you gave me of getting a second chance at life."
