Oral Cancer Patient Story - Robotic Surgery
Testimonial: Robotic Surgery for Oral Cancer
“I will be forever grateful for the team. I cannot recommend them enough. Dr. Saint John, Mensa, Dr. Reza, Dr. Chhetri…everyone!!!!” —Deena
Walking into meet the cancer surgeons that would potentially perform a very tricky surgery could be a very intimidating thing, but within a few minutes I realized this experience would be very different. The team not only put me at ease with their immense knowledge, but within minutes I felt like they were treating me as a dear friend vs a random patient. The team was one of the most kind, compassionate and competent groups I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
As an accident prone child, I have spent a lot of time in hospitals but this was something different. I would walk out of each visit relaxed and confident that I had the best team on the planet.
And, after the surgery I realized we were right. A tricky surgery that could have left me with compromised speaking, swallowing and breathing became a breeze. I was out of the hospital in a few days and off pain meds within a few more. My whole family as well as my self felt so supported thought the entire process. This was because each aspect of my care was top notch and delivered with kindness, compassion and high level of skill.
I will be forever grateful for the team. I cannot recommend them enough. Dr. Saint John, Mensa, Dr. Reza, Dr. Chhetri…everyone!!!!
