What People Say About Dr. Ivan Zendejas Ruiz, MD

Dr. Zendejas is truly phenomenal. He spends more time with you than any other surgeon - answers questions, makes you completely comfortable. My husband' prognosis wasn't great, and Dr. Z was willing to do a more risky surgery (the cancer had metastatized to both right and left lobes of the liver) to save my husband's life. Now, 20 months after the surgery, he has no evidence of cancer in his body, is off all chemo and medications, and living a full life. We owe this to Dr Zendejas and the colon surgeon, Dr. Ute Gawlick. They are a great team.

Dr. Zendejas removed 60% of my liver under emergency circumstances in Feb. 2015 at Shands Medical Center three days after my gall bladder was removed incorrectly in a Ga. Hospital. His surgery saved my life!
