Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sas "Abdominal wall problems can be complex. The treatment may be time and labor intensive, sometimes requiring multiple procedures. The operations can be technically difficult and fraught with possible complications. Judgment is critical. Some surgeons may feel they lack the needed skills or they may decide they do not want to invest the time and effort these cases require. I believe such patients deserve better."

Patient Comments (1)
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Norman Sas performed surgery on my mother and did an excellent job. He was prompt with follow-up visits and explained everything in a concise detailed fashion without adding any sense of humor, which some Doctor's think they have.
