Re: Dr Brendan Stack in Vienna VA! Can he really fix TMJD?

Hi there,
I live in Seattle, WA and I flew all the way over to D.C. to see Dr. Stack.
I think it's been a year since I was there, but he recommended me to get a surgery, which I opposed to.
and I'm glad I didn't. because I know surgeries do more harm than good.
So just in case he says you need a surgery, don't rely too much on that. okay?
Take care

Hey, thanks!

After reading some reviews about him, I think I will see a different tmj specialist.

So how's your tmj now? What was your condition?

Thanks again for sharing!

Hi, I emailed another dr about TMJ, and he sent this reply...


Thanks for your kind words. If Marion is near Vienna, I'd suggest that you consult Dr. Brendan Stack. He's one of the world's foremost experts on this subject and a good friend of mine.

Hi, I have been a patient of Dr. Stack's for several years. He was recommended to me by an excellent physician in Indiana who was impressed with his knowledge, approach and results with patients. Fortunately for me, Dr. Stack is exactly what the other dr. told me he would be. He is successfully treating my tmj. First with a splint (looks like a retainer) and a light wire that went behind my upper teeth. I had an MRI at an independent center (Dr. Stack wrote the prescription for this) which showed my tmj discs were displaced. This results in what is technically a dislocated jaw. My symptoms were headaches, fullness in ears, broken teeth from my bite being out of whack, constant coughing. I had surgery with Dr. Gregory to put the discs back in place and now I am in braces with Dr. Stack. I feel that Dr. Stack saved my life from being miserable. He is one of the top doctors in the country and he is always reviewing my case and making changes that benefit me. I have seen patients come in wobbling on canes from movement disorders and then walking out unaided after a few visits when they receive their splint. I know at least two doctors personally who refer all of their patients with tmj and other related problems to Dr. Stack. He is revered in the field and he has definitely been worth my time and money. I also have a teenager who was treated by him successfully for orthontics (braces) and a younger teenager who is receiving tmj treatment from Dr. Stack now, after she was in a sports accident that severely damaged her jaw. She has had no headaches and other big symptoms after she received a splint from Dr. Stack.

Hello!
Any DX that claims to "fix TMJ" you should RUN. There is NO CURE for TMJ, BUT pain & function can be reduced and returned to a degree. Surgery SHOULD ALWAYS be your very LAST option. Once you get on the surgery train there is no going back. Remember this is your body YOU make the decisions and if you are uncomfortable with ANY doctor find another!! I hope you find an Oral Surgeon that you are comfortable with.
Take Care!

Hey Mar, how's your treatment going? I'm thinking of seeing Stack and getting the surgery with Dr. Gregory to reposition the disk. PM me if you see this as I'd like to see how you're doing.
