Kara Moshiko
My father was diagnosed with 3rd stage esophageal cancer, and we were very disappointed with the treatment outcomes. That's when we found out about Dr. Antonio Maria De Lacy. After having an online consultation with him, we flew to Spain to get his surgery done. The surgery went successfully, and now my father is left with a few chemotherapy doses to recover completely.
I had my laparoscopic esophageal surgery from Dr. Antonio and I must say that he is an exceptional doctor with an amazing personality. His diagnosis is very accurate as well as the professionalism in his personality is exceptional. He is one of my most favorite specialists that I would recommend to every patient facing gastrointestinal illness.
Colorectal Cancer Surgery
I have colorectal cancer and had some internal complications due to which the doctors considered the surgery as a risk. I went to Dr. Antonio Maria who is famous for minimally invasive surgeries. My decision of choosing him as my surgeon was the best thing that I did. He performed the surgery well and I am amazed at how fast I recovered from it.
