1985 total Colectomy with j pouch early patient who received excellent care at UCLA with team of nurses and head surgeon Dr. Fonkalsrud who literally saved my life as I suffered from Severe Ulcerative colitis it was so bad that not for his discovery of this new procedure I would have had to wear a colonostomy at a young age and possibly never marry and have children. I have since had a wonderful life because of him. He will always be my doctor, but even more a dear friend.
