Ask around, my surgeon was actually recommended by a competing hospital.Her name is Susan Galandiuk at U of Louisville Hospital. She not only specializes in the resection but is very aggressive in finding and taking out nodes. Good wishes coming your way....Pam

Dr. Michael Stamos. University of California, Irvine Medical Center. (714)345-6789 He's the one that all the surgeons in this area of So California send their patients to that are too low..mine was in the first rectal fold. 3% of his patients require a temp bag...only 3%...I never did...lost rectum, sig colon....using my new plumbing the night after surgery....

Hugs, Kathi
