The surgery went well. The scar is healing wonderfully and parts are almost unnoticeable and it's only been 5 weeeks.

Dr. Brilliant saved my father's life. He had my father's name listed at the front desk of the emergency room before we arrived. If it wasn't for his proactive help of getting my father to the ER, I don't know if he would be alive today. Dr. Brilliant is an excellent human being.
