“My 2-year anniversary for esophageal cancer just passed and I can say that I am close to perfect. The surgical techniques of Dr. Christie have left me totally functional. There were 14 little cuts that haven’t left a scar and the only different thing is that I have to add enzymes to my diet daily. At 66 I play tennis 3 times a week and sometimes I even win. Praise you Dr. Christie!”
