19/11/11 5 5 5 5 I had been seen by several different doctors over a six month period at my regular health provider but never got a substantial diagnosis of how all all of my various issues were related until I saw Dr. Norton. Dr. Norton did surgery laproscopically on my pancreas that others had said couldn't be done. I also had parathyroid surgery at the same time so I only had to face one recovery period rather than two separate surgeries. The care and treatment by everyone at Stanford was first rate and I can't thank them enough for everything they did for me. I was out of the hospital after three nights and was back at work in 25 days!! Dr. Norton was the best and really made me feel comfortable because of his knowledge and confidence which is important when facing these difficult times.

13/11/09 5 5 5 5 I HAD A 9 1/2 HOUR SURGERY WITH REMOVAL OF A 30 LB. SARCOMA. DR. NORTON SAVED MY LIFE. HE SAW ME TWO TIMES EACH DAY, 7 DAYS PER WEEK AND WAS THE BEST DOCTOR I'VE EVER HAD. I LOST MY LEFT KIDNEY, SPLEEN, HALF MY COLON, PART OF MY DIAPHRAGM, PART OF MY STOMACH AND PART OF MY PANCREAS. 4 MONTHS AFTER MY SURGERY I AM DOING GREAT AND FEEL LIKE I'VE HAD A SECOND CHANCE ON LIFE. I KNOW I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT IF NOT FOR DR. NORTON.

His dedication and professionalism were outstanding.I had a very difficult surgery for my pancreas and with a lot of complications, but dr Norton stood by me and helped me go through a very tough time in my life. He visited me every day of my 3 months stay in the hospital and even though he looks he is tough and cold some time he has a golden heart!. He is really a giant in the field of cancer surgery.God bless him!  Respond
