11 years ago Dr. Kazan removed an astrocytoma brain tumor that was roughly the size and shape of a Grade A Large Egg, 11 years later I'm still walking around with my kids on THIS side of the grass. He has been blessed with astounding skills. I knew he was i was going to choose him to do the job after just a few minutes into meeting him. In just a few minutes he was able to make me feel confident and secure that he could do the job as well as it could be done. He didn't make any promises, however he gave me the range of worst case to best case, then he described the tumor and how, in general, how he suggests he would treat it. I got a second opinion at Mayo Clinic. That neurosurgeon aaked if I would have the surgery done at Mayo. I responded that I'd rather do it in my area for the support network of family and friends there. He said in that case he recommended Dr. Kazan at Hinsdale Hospital. Hinsdale Hospital has state-of-the-art equipment and he knows Dr. Kazan. He said Dr. Kazan has the best hands he has ever seen. That was enough for me. I'm still here 11 years later. Without hesitation I would put my brain in Dr. Kazan's hands again.
I was suffering with horrid lumbar back paint that was radiating down the back of my left leg. I had this pain for month's and was being treated by a Doctor who only wanted to give me pain medication. I wanted a solution and my GP sent me to Doctor Robert Kazan. After 2 visits he performed surgery on my back and found a tumor on my spine. He removed and and I danced my way out of Good Sam's. He told me that this never showed up in any of the tests but was suspect. Dr. Kazan is old school. Within 2 weeks of the surgery I was enjoying Christmas chasing my little Grandson around. I will always be thankful for this amazing Surgeon. He is 5 Star.
