    - in Austin, TX |

    I had a radical colectomy with J pouch performed by Dr. Cline in February of 2004 due to a long history of ulcerative colitis. Dr. Cline explained all my options, the risks and the benefits of the procedure. My quality of life has been excellent ever since and I thank him for giving my life back to me. He is an excellent surgeon, compassionate and always takes time to make sure his patients are well informed.
