Some background reading…

In one of the Canadian Editions of Reader’s Digest, in the ‘Medical Breakthroughs’ there is an article about portions of the surgery that I underwent. It specifically references two of the surgeons and radiation specialists on my team: Jha and Seikaly. These two were instrumental in the development of the use of forearm tissue to replace damaged tissue in the back of the throat and the tongue, and for the saliva gland transplant. I’m having trouble find a copy of the article on the Internet, but I will post the link here if I can find it. It mentions that their accomplishments were presented in August, 2006, in Chicago at a meeting of the American Head and Neck Society.
