“I had grafting done for the first time by Dr. Powell and the process was easy and painless. When I returned home I began reading about others’ experiences with grafting and noticed that what I was going through was much different. While others were saying this was the worst pain of their life, I had no pain at all. I was just so happy to not be in pain and will get my other grafts done by Dr. Powell!”
