Dr. Zitsman saved our daughter's life. She was born with stenosis of the intestine (2 1/2 inches of her intestine were solid) and she was unable to eat or go to the bathroom or pass the meconium. Less than 24 hours after giving birth Dr. Zitsman along with the Northern Westchester Hospital NICU team met with me and my husband and explained our options. He was nothing but informative and assuring. What seemed to be a lifetime, after 7 or so hours of surgery our daughter was "fixed" there were no issues to worry about in the future. Today, our daughter is 19 years old, a Division 1 lacrosse player at the College of The Holy Cross, and an amazing human being. Every day that we look at or speak with our daughter we thankful for Dr. Zitsman. In my opinion, Dr. Zitsman wears a cape and a halo at the same time. Laura and Nick Giardina, Westchester NY
