Hole in one!

By tblumpt

I had a radical resection of an 11cm mixoidliposarcoma on the outside of my left hip followed by 6 weeks of radiation in October 2007. 8 years later, on October 25, 2015 I got a hole in one at my local golf course ! If I had allowed my initial consulting surgeon to operate on me, I would have been unable to achieve the balance necessary to effectively swing a golf club...much less run or walk without a pronounced limp. Dr. Eilber not only saved my life, but preserved the normal function of my leg. I am forever indebted to him and to his father, Dr. Eilber Sr., for pioneering the surgical techniques and treatments which save lives including mine. Thank you! Tracy
