Dr. Geisler performed the NUSS procedure on my son a couple of years ago and he has since had the second surgery to remove the rod. Dr. Geisler is an amazing doctor, extremely talented, knowledgeable, and passionate. We would highly recommend choosing Dr. Geisler.

In March 2014, my 11 year old daughter had an emergency appendectomy. Our pediatrician immediately suspected the appendix was the culprit, and called ahead to Lutheran General. It was a Saturday but fortunately Dr. Geissler would be the surgeon. She stated that he had the best reputation, was a highly skilled surgeon and we were in good hands. Dr Geissler is very talented, and the scar is barely there 2 1/2 years later. He was kind, with a fantastic bedside manner calming my daughter (and us).

Dr Geissler found that my son needed to have his chest corrected. He has studied to perform the nuss procedure. Dr Geissler is very knowledgable and reassuring! He has performed hundreds of these procedures as well as many different surgeries on peds. My son was reassured having Dr Geissler as his surgeon. The procedure went amazingly. Recovery was tough. Dr Geissler came in daily to check on my son. Everyone in the hospital knows and respects Dr Geissler!

Dr. Geissler receives our highest recommendation. He is competent, confident and explains evertyhing in great detail. He puts the patient's needs and safety above all else but takes his time to answer each and every question that you or your child might have. Personable and caring, he truly takes pride in his work and the lives that he is able to impact. We worked with Dr. Geissler for 2+ years and couldn't be happier with the process, the outcome or our relationship with him.
Dr. Geissler is wonderful. He made my son and myself very comfortable. He took a tin of time explaining what was wrong and how we fix it..
Dr. Geissler is a wonderful doctor. He made our whole family so comfortable with his knowledge and experience. Dr. Geissler performed the Nuss procedure for pectus excavatum on our son, who is 16. He spent extra time during the surgery to make sure everything was going to look perfect. When our son was in recovery, we could not believe the transformation of his chest. It looked like he had never had pectus excavatum! Dr. Geissler's surgical skills and artistry in the operating room are amazing.
