The 2011 Medical Miracles Gala, hosted by University Health System, honored Abby Jack, a beautiful and healthy two year old girl, who at six months, suffered a devastating, life-threatening injury.  Dr. David Jimenez, who removed one-third of Abby’s skull to alleviate massive swelling, was recognized for the surgical care he provided in saving little Abby’s life.



Patient Testimonials

For over a year, I was tormented with pain in my right jaw, it was intermittent, lasting a few seconds but occurring sometimes as often as six times per minute.  The pain was sudden and felt like the dentist’s drill during a root canal procedure.  These shock-like stabs of pain were accompanied by a burning on the tip and right side of my tongue.  As if this wasn’t enough, my jaw had a constant ache (like a bad headache).
