Esophageal cancer

Just over 6 years ago I was diagnose with stage 4B esophageal cancer. It was very sudden. I could not swallow anything but a little water. I went through a very harsh regime of radiation and chemotherapy which made me sick and weak. But it worked to the point where I could eat and drink almost normally. Dr. Bartos gave me a month break from the chemo and radiation to regain a little strength and then in December of 2011 he performed an esophagectomy on me at the main Kaiser hospital at Zion in San Diego. The recovery from this was pretty tough- but I did learn why drug addicts love their drugs so much. When I was really hurting the wonderful nurses in ICU could tell and they gave me a shot of something which felt wonderful as it went up my arm and into my shoulder and directly to the very severe pain and Poof! It was gone and I could sleep. They told me it was morphine in very small doses. It was miraculous to me. I recovered completely from this operation because Dr. Bartos performed it perfectly. . I can swim, ride my bike, pump the petite iron in the gym and hike in the desert and mountains. I can bounce my little grandson on my knee. Dr. Bartos and his superb skills as a surgeon saved my life. I will be forever grateful to him. He is a true American hero.

An MD you can respect

I too feel like Dr. Bartos is a life-saver. The nurses at the hospital said that he is one they would go to for surgery. I also can't believe how well I healed. My scar from surgery at one month looks as good as a scar that is faded and well healed from 20 years ago. He is a great MD and sometimes it is difficult to get in to see him. I liked and trusted his Physician's Assistants so I so them as well as Dr. Bartos after surgery as I needed a LOT of follow-up (do to my problem, cancer, drains, etc..)You are in good hands with Dr. Bartos and he is an MD who seems to enjoy and care about his work.

Dr. Bartos saved my life. He's a dedicated, caring doctor. As such, he's very busy and tough to get ahold of after you've been discharged, but if I get sick again he's the one I'd like caring for me.
