Dr. Pedersen is an excellent surgeon. He was going to remove a questionable polyp from my colon and decided to remove approximate 10 inches of my colon, which probably saved my life, since the polyp was determined to be cancerous, but with no lymph node involvement. The scar is negligible and my recovery was really quick. I highly recommend this doctor.
