Bawari Flap

He treated my mother. She had an obliterated ureter due to scar tissue. He had to use an electric current to chisel away the adhesions. What was supposed to be a 2 hour surgery ended up being close to 9! I can't thank him enough for helping my mom and her quality of life! Great surgeon, good humor and great office staff!! I believe this procedure was done in 2014, unfortunately she lost her 5 year battle to ovarian cancer in September 2016. Sue Sliker-Swanson, Erie, PA
