In 2000 i was transferred from a small town in Arkansas via ambulance to the Mayo Clinic. Dr Nagorney performed a liver resection as well as partial removal of my diaphragm. My diagnosis was malignant germ of the liver, it is now 2018 and I remain cancer free. I’ve not made it back to Rochester Mn to tell how thankful that God used him to save my life and for that I am eternally grateful!! Thank you so much Dr Nagorney, you are truly the best!!

Did an excellent job with a splenectomy and post operative care. Be aware that he does not use nurse communicators during surgery and does not typically communicate with the person accompanying the person being operated on immediately before, during, or immediately after surgery. I was told by Mayo Clinic that nearly all of their surgeons do. So if you're accompanying someone for a surgery with Dr. Nagorney, know that no news is good news. That will save you a lot of potential stress.
