Testimonials

How Clients Review Our Service..

Dr. Shakir saved the life of my wife. She suffered a ruptured colon late on a Saturday night during the peak of the COVID-19. He operated on her late that same night. As I was not allowed into the hospital, I only received phone calls before and after the operation. He talked to me the next day and made it very clear to me that her recovery would be a day at a time concern and that she was very sick. I very much felt that she was in very capable and professional care. A few months later he was able to perform a reversal operation to make her whole again. We are very pleased with the outcome of this set of events and we are forever grateful for his skill as a surgeon and doctor.

Appendicitis surgery

Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix, a small pouch attached to the intestine on the lower right side. This organ’s actual function isn’t clear. It is believed that the appendix may help our body recover from infections and inflammations of the intestine like diarrhea, but the body can function just as well without its help. This is why it is removed when it gets inflamed. The procedure to remove the appendix is called appen dectomy. Appendectomy or appendicitis surgery is a common emergency procedure that our experts at Houston are well-versed with. Learn more.

 

Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

Your pancreas is located below the stomach, in the lower part of the abdomen. It releases enzymes that aid digestion and produces hormones that help manage blood sugar. Pancreatic cancer begins in the pancreatic tissues. The tumors in the pancreas can be cancerous or noncancerous. The most common type of pancreatic cancer starts in the lining of the pancreatic ducts (pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma). Most pancreatic cancer cases are diagnosed in patients aged 65 and older.
