Reply to "Dr Remzi leaving Cleveland Clinic ??"

Greetings, all - Just some additional info to this thread.  Dr. Remzi was actually the head of the DDI at the Cleveland Clinic for several years, not just a couple as a previous post indicates.  He was already running the DDI at the time he did my one-step in September 2009.  For those of you considering him as a surgeon, I would absolutely travel to NYC to retain him.  I was heartbroken when I heard he had left.  However, for those searching for another Cleveland Clinic colorectal surgeon, I can personally recommend Dr. Costedio.  She was in her first year at the Clinic when she assisted Dr. Remzi with my one-step and she is the reason it was done laparoscopically and not as a laparotomy (open procedure with a giant incision).  My surgery, with both of them working, was nearly 8 hours long.  Dr. Costedio has a wonderful bedside manner and she and Dr. Remzi together were exceptional.  In the ensuing 8 years I've had two episodes of pouchitis and absolutely no other complications.
