Patient Reviews
Jun 10, 2020
I had a complicated rectal cancer that required a multi-faceted approach. Many health professionals felt it was unlikely that I would avoid a permanent colostomy due to the location of the tumor. Dr. Carlson felt confident that he could avoid this outcome and performed the lengthy surgery with great skill. Not only did he avoid a permanent colostomy, but he removed all traces of the tumor and later performed my temporary ileostomy takedown surgery. It has been 4 months since my surgeries and I'm riding my bike, running and enjoying life again. My wounds healed up quickly and well and my bowel function was preserved. I am forever grateful to Dr. Carlson and recommend him highly.
