Its not just good luck to find one. Dr Redan At celebration Hosp is there for just this. before going to the many surgeons that claim they can help try one that can. It was worth the trip, tax deductable medical expense. This website has all his info and CAPPS program info. Depending on where you live there may be other option, but before surgery check into options carefully. I know is sound like alot to travel to a DR> but the future of some free time of adhesions is that worth it. If it can be a longer timebetween, than most surgery and with out the severity of the regrowth when it does. D
