Per a PM new updated info (thanks!!!):

Dr. Wexner's name at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston is Steven (not Robert). When I last visited down there, just about a year ago, with another surgeon who trained with Wexner, I was lead to believe they do not do continent ostomies, but they will scope them.

Hi, I'm new to this site, I've seen a lot of good ideas on here. I wanted to add my surgeon to the list. Dr. David Dietz from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. 216-445-2491. I just had my Koch pouch surgery on May 4th. He's a very good dr. with a great bedside manner. I recommend him highly.

Hi Grandma64,
I am going to see Dr. Kiran @ the CC and have a k-pouch put in. This will be my 4th surgery performed by Dr. Kiran since 2007. I have heard so many good comments about this procedure that this si the way I want to go. How are you or anyone else out there feeling after their surgery. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
many thanks and hope you and others are feeling better

I never did say thanks for the info, so.......THANK YOU!!!!!!! Dr Cohen here in Toronto was amazing, aside from post op pain, the pouch and nipple valve are working perfectly! It's been not even 6 weeks, and already I'm down to 3-4 emptyings a day, AND, for the first time in the past 23 years with my old J pouch, I can sleep right through the night without having to get up and go to the bathroom, that is a miracle in itself!! I only pray the post op pain and weakness goes away, then I'll be perfect!

Thanks again!

Keep up the good work Eric and don't go too fast..Take your time healing...the slower you go now, the better things will be later one...no working out, no abs, no carrying heavy weight (grocery shopping is OUT!), no climbing stairs or bending/stretching/pulling or pushing.
Got it?
Sharon
Please stay healthy and baby that wonderful pouch of yours.

Hi Janice,
I must have lived on Mars , as I always felt like an alien and
did not know that these Specialists existed in Southern CA.
Reason being, I did not have much of a problem all these years
with my K- Pouch. I have always considered myself very lucky
to have had this OP in 1980 because it was in the early stages.
I was referred to a Dr. Alex Gerber in the Alhambra Hospital, who
had learned this technic in Sweden. He retired soon after and has
long passed away. Except for enlarging the stoma and a time of
Anemia, oh and retrieving a Plum pit, I had no problems and
acted like nothing ever happened because I was able to do all
the sports that I was used to doing. 5 months after the OP you
could find me on the mountains skiing.
When I finally did have some problems years later, pouchitis, none
of the doctors I knew were around. I had heard though, if it does
happen, get Flagyl. Ever since, I was only treated by a GI doctor
and since I am on Scan Health Insurance with a very good doctor
but nearly no knowledge of the K-Pouch. I feel like I am teaching
him because I have been living with this for 32 years.
After having low abdominal pain for a month, went to the doc.
had a CT Scan and finally after 2 1/2 mos. he found the courage
to look into the pouch with my encouragement. Made a big deal
about it and probably costs lots of money in the hospital, he saw
pieces that looked like stones. I told him about the plum pit and
he got a bigger scope and basket and fished out 3 stone like
creatures but by that time I was pretty sore. I had chosen no
sedation because I wanted to be alert with this fishing expedition.
He stopped and everyone was at WOW. Well, there are two more
Stones to fish for. After the soreness calmed down, I felt somewhat better. I finally had some of my energy back that I
had missed out on for almost 3 mos. and living on Ensure and ground up food. Needless to say, I lost a few pounds and I don't
need to lose weight, I only weigh barely 100 pounds.
MY QUESTIONS IS. DO YOU KNOW OF ANYONE THAT HAS HAD
THIS PROBLEM WITH THE STONES? I do hope that I will be well
again but I will check into one of the doctors near me that you
had on your list. Any recommendation?
I WOULD SURE FEEL A LOT BETTER WITH A DOCTOR THAT HAS
EXPERIENCE WITH K-POUCHES.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THE WORK TO FIND ALL THESE SPECIAL
DOCTORS.

Hi!! wow, we both had Dr Gerber in 1980! I had no idea or have met anyone else! His assoc's took over and they did my valve revisions but they are retired. I need to check out their offices to see if anyone is doing them.

In the meantime, we found Dr Launer out of Scripps in La Jolla who trained with Dr Kock and Dr Gerber. He unfortunately passed away last year. But, his assoc Dr Worsey is very capable and worked hand in hand with Dr Launer and independently doing KPs.

I haven't heard of stones - I know you can have very old undissolved medication that looks like stones. Did they send them to the lab? if, so what type of stones were they? Also, you may want to start a new discussion with the headline "pouch stones" to see if any members respond....

I'd set up a consult with Dr Worsey. He can also do a scope right there and then in his office. Yes, no sedation..hurts like hell for a few minutes but no biggie as you well know.

How wonderful you found us. I also had no idea until I found this wonderful forum in 2008! I'm PM you...let's get together! We have a small group of KPers that try to meet for lunch annually!

I am new to this site and appreciate all the feedback and input.

I have been researching the k-pouch and find it the best option given all my problems with my j-pouch and current ileostomy (as well as a fistula). I too see Dr. Kiran (as well as Dr. Shen) at the Cleveland Clinic. However, my last appointment, I was told I have to wait for the K-pouch surgery (6 months to 3 years). This is truly frustrating since I have nothing but pain (cuffitis) and problems with my ileostomy. Is anyone else familiar with this 'waiting period'? Any insight as to why?

It is so wonderful to have this forum; I have learned so much and thanks to everyone for providing their personal experiences and knowledge.

Hi Kara, I too went to the Cleveland Clinic. I had Dr. David Deetz as my surgeon. I went in to see him in October 2011 and there was only 1 Friday that he couldn't perform my surgery. I could have had it anytime I wanted but with my husbands schedule, we choose to have it in May 2012. Had surgery May 4, went home the following Saturday May 12. Dr. Deetz was awesome, had no complications and to date have had only 1 case of pouchitis. grandma64

From what I have heard, the wait period is not due to scheduling issues, but because of what they need from the patient in regard to physical readiness or to rule out contraindications (like Crohn's). I imagine it varies case by case. Kara, what have your doctors told you about the reasoning? If they have not told you, you need to find out.

Hi Kara, the surgeons at the CC are the best for kpouches. If they advised you to wait, they must have surgical rationale. Why don't you give their office a call to clarify?

It could be a number of reasons, a. to have your digestive track settle down, b. to gain weight, c. to gain strenght, etc.

Very sorry to hear about your chronic pain, they should have addressed this with you at your appt while advising you to wait on the KP. I'd ask about that, too.

Best, Janice

@Kara, it could be the fistula, maybe they are waiting for that to heal or get less output. Just a thought, they also may be trying to figure out if you have Crohn's and were; since you have a fistula. Just my thoughts...but like Jan said, I would call and ask why the wait.

Hi

Dr Hulten sent me an email:

I would like to suggest that you puts up on the list:

Hans Wassmuth MD.PhD
Surgical department
St Olavs Hospital.
Universitetssykehuset i Trondheim
7006 Trondheim

Dr Wassmuth and his team are technically brilliant and perform the operation frequently on a regular basis.. Dr Wassmuth has been trained by Professor Helge Myrvold, who was - like myself - taught and trained to perform the technique as registrars at professor Kock´s clinic during many years.

I am new to your site and thank you for the information on doctors. I have not had any issues in many years but I definitely needed a referral and my doctor recently passed away.

Dr. David Sung has retired. A great loss as he was an incredible surgeon. When I learned that he was going to retire I freaked out and it was for a good reason, as this list shows. He did say he tried to train younger doctors but couldn't find anyone who was really interested. That is the scariest thing about my health.

Thank you for this doctor's list, Janice. Greatly appreciated!!!

Remember everyone....."Be An Advocate for the Kock Pouch/BCIR" or this surgery will become obsolete!
