Hi Everyone! Since this is the Rave & Rant section, I wanted to take this time to Rave about my surgeon, Dr. Ernesto Drelichman, he was my surgeon for my J-Pouch (Illeostomy & take-down) and was absolutely one of the best I think that was out there. When he was my surgeon he was at the Kirkland clinic in Birmingham, AL. He has since moved, and I am sure I could do a google search, but just wanted to know if anyone else had him as their surgeon?
He is an amazing surgeon, and I'd like to make mention that I had zero complications following surgery, during, or anywhere in between. I know and understand that this could have just been my body responding well, as I was just a young 22 year old kid, healthy otherwise than U.C., and 6'1" tall 150 lb twig at the time. I am now 34, and it's been 12 years since my surgery, and never had complications. I have had the occasional pouchitis, but who doesn't.
Just wanted to take the time to mention that if anyone has the opportunity to be operated on by Dr. Ernesto Drelichman and his team, he is one of the best out there! Also, has anyone else had him as their surgeon, or does anyone know where he is now?
