i was in the Falmouth, Ma hospital with a blocked colon. After 6 days, 30 enemas, and a 30 minute flexible sygmoidoscopy that were all unsuccessful, they transferred me to the Faulkner to see Dr. Mutinga. the next morning he performed a 3 Hour Flex Syg (that's right, 3 hours!!) and he cleared the obstruction. I truly feel his expertise helped me where other doctors could not. He saved me from having to be opened up and having a bag put in place for up to 1-2 months!
