DR. Morelock saved my life. A unexpected dissection of my ascending aorta happened . Great surgeon with great skills.
in Morrison, CO |
Nine years or so, it was determined that I had an abdominal aneurysm which was nearing a very bad diameter. Dr Morelock and his associate, Dr. Leone, repaired the aneurysm and his exam earlier this year, determined that the only diameter in that part of my body was the stint he and Dr. Leone installed in me. He sees me every year now (I am now soon to be 82).
in Broomfield, CO |
Dr. Morelock performed dual bypass surgery on my in June, 2009. He harvested an artery from my right arm and used in in his surgery. I am in great health now 6 1/2 years later, almost 78 and shooting for 120!
