Palos Heights, IL |
Dr. Gordon perfomed an esophagectomy on me due to stage 2 esophageal cancer. He is truly the best surgeon around and I felt so comfortable working with him. He is down to earth and easy to approach with difficult questions. There was no doubt in my mind that he was the best person for the job. He saved my life and I would recommend him to anyone who needed his type of specialized surgeries. Patty who works with him is also truly remarkable at her craft. Thank you- both of you.

Performed lung surgery on me in Feb 2008 at Palos Hospital.2nd stage non-small cell lung cancer confined to the top section of my right lung. Surgery removed the top section along with two swollen lymph nodes. After 5-6 days in the hospital I recovered at home and followed with chemotherapy. It is now almost 8 years from surgery and periodic follow-up scans have indicated I am, at present, cancer free. I am 78 years old.
