Michelle Kueber is a 25 year old patient of JCHC Professional Clinic Surgeon Dr. Gregory Ivins.
Michelle has had Meralgia Paresthetica since she was a child. The leg pain associated with the disease progressively got worse as she got older and for the past few years the pain and the pain medicine has limited her mobility and her lifestyle. She was beginning to fear for her future. Her research on the disease indicated that many people with this disease eventually become wheelchair bound.
After seeing numerous doctors in Indiana and being unwilling to resort to a life of ever increasing doses of pain medication, Michelle with the help of her mother Debbie began searching the internet for answers. To their surprise and delight they found a paper written by Dr. Gregory Ivins on the treatment of Meralgia Paresthetica.
