      Dr. Brandes performed a psoas hitch surgery on me in 2012. I have had numerous major surgeries comma radiation, and chemotherapy as a child. I only have my left kidney, and had a ureteral blockage due to scar tissue. Dr. Brandes saved my kidney, and return me during normal kidney function with no medications needed. I would recommend him to anyone who has a complicated kidney procedure needing to be done. He is a first class surgeon in my book!
