I was a resident in general surgery when Dr. Olsen and Dr. Osterholm were at Hahnemann. Dr. Olsen recommended I interview at Yale for a position of resident in neurosurgery. Dr. Osterholm was planning to begin a residency program at Hahnemann in neurosurgery. I asked if I should be his first resident. He said that I should go to Yale. I did so. I had a fine career in neurosurgery in Silicon Valley, Santa Clara County. My interaction with Dr. Osterholm was key to my career. I shall always be grateful to him.

I happened to be Dr Osterholm,s fIrst Resident joining his training program in 1975 at Jefferson after he moved from Hahneman in 1974,and since i had not seen him lately,his photo shown here took me back to his youthful years of mid seventies.What a dynamic personality he was, a skillful surgeon,an Inquisitive researcher, a stern but extremely fair Administrator, a Kind teacher, in fact was a holder of many attributes,rarely GOD Produces men like Dr Osterholm. May GOD rest him in Peace and Grant strength to his family to bear the loss.

Dr. Osterholm operated on me in 1977 for trigeminal neuralgia, a debilitating horrendous facial pain disorder. He didnt want to operate thinking he would find nothing there but was convinced to do so by the neuroophthalmologist. To his surprise he found the reason for my pain and the surgery worked completely for 3 months. Unfortunately blood vessels grew back and with them came the pain.
I have said for years and want to tell it here as well. If I had run into him at any time over the past many years and he would have said "I think I know how to stop your pain" I would have laid down in the middle of the street and said "Go ahead".
I was so grateful for his willingness to take a risk on me and operate.
