When I met Dr. Nielsen for the first time, I immediately felt a sense of dedication in what he believes in, especially when it comes to less invasive surgery, which is what he specializes in.
I am originally from the East coast area, so when it was explained to me that I needed major surgery, I felt very alone in this Midwest state not knowing where to start looking for the right surgeon. I started networking with co-workers and friends and searched the internet for doctors specializing in new innovative procedures relating to my medical condition.
Dr. Nielsen was the specialist I chose for a 2nd opinion. In my case Dr. Nielsen gave me other less invasive options and felt very strongly about saving my ovaries, so that I wouldn’t go into premature menopause. Before my surgery I was amazed how much time he spent going over my procedure, taking the time out to listen to every issue and concern I had, including my long list of questions. He is an articulate and detail oriented doctor. His personality is very calming, making it easy to talk with him.
I felt very confident going through with this less invasive surgery.
The procedure was called Laparoscopic Supra Cervical Hysterectomy. The uterus and the very large grapefruit sized fibroid extending above it were removed.
The procedure was very successful, and I feel very blessed to have had Dr. Nielson as my surgeon.
I will continue to see Dr. Nielsen for my health care needs as well as for future menopausal management which is one his specialties. His medical staff is excellent and the new medical facility in Maple Grove is beautiful.
