Anyone know a surgeon with experience with Continent Ileostomy?

I have had a continent ileostomy for 26 and am in need of a valve reconstruction. My surgoen died and I need to locate a new one.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Colorectal Cancer Support Group.

@dealco, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your trusted surgeon. I understand that you are looking for a new surgeon for valve reconstruction of your K-Pouch or continent ileostomy. Are you looking for a surgeon locally? If yes, what state do you live in? Or might travel to Mayo Clinic be a possibility for you?

May I ask what led to your needing an ileostomy?
