He was a Resident Physician from (June 2016 – June 2017) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He has offices in Rochester, Minnesota and Sioux Falls South Dakota. His specialties and expertise are in EMG/Nerve Conduction Studies, Prosthetics, Chronic Pain, Sports Medicine, Nerve Damage, Rehabilitation, and Injury.
I had spinal surgery in late January 2018 at Mayo Clinic.
I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Ceremuga’s group for my post operative therapies. All of his people were good and I got to know some of them as being outstanding.
Several times Dr. Ceremuga had a group meeting with his staff and me to see how I was coming along, I was included in the group discussions , which was very helpful, and I do believe that help to accelerate my healing process. It was also good to know that his staff was talking with each other and could understand the various strategies each was using.
A few days into my therapy, my right knee became very painful. After some discussion with him. Dr. Ceremuga had a blood draw done by the nurses. The conclusion was I had pseudogout. I found out later that gout or pseudogout is not uncommon after surgery. He had a visiting physician who assisted him in performing surgery on my knee. After removing the crud from my knee he gave me a cortisone shot and I was good to go. Where else but Mayo Clinic can you get instant surgery and from your attending physician?
You can tell that Dr. Ceremuga really enjoys his job. During the last group meeting I had with the group, I thanked them and told them how great they had been. (Most of my career has been high dollar high-value and C-level Advanced Technology sales and understanding verbal and physical feedback from my customers.) I can tell you that Dr. Ceremuga was truly happy when I told them that. I was being genuine when I was telling them how great they had been.
