"At the time of this review Dr. Ira Leeds is an Assistant Professor in the Yale School of Medicine’s (YSM) Department of Surgery's Division of Colon & Rectal Surgery. I awoke one morning with severe abdominal pain that worsened during the day and that resulted in my going to the Emergency Ward at Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH) that evening. A CAT scan revealed that my sigmoid colon was blocked as a result of acute sigmoid volvulus (i.e., twisting). Although an endoscopic procedure successfully untwisted my sigmoid colon, Dr. Leeds explained that my redundant (i.e., extra long) colon made it virtually certain that without surgery I would incur additional blockages that could be life threatening. Therefore Dr. Leeds recommended that I undergo laparoscopic sigmoidectomy to remove 70% (i.e., about 1.5 foot) of my sigmoid colon during this hospital admission to dramatically reduce the risk of another blockage. Dr. Leeds discussed my case with two colleagues who concurred with his recommendation ...
and within a few hours of my requesting to consult with another member of the Colon and Rectal Surgery Section, the Chair of this Section was in my hospital room talking with me and my wife. It is now 16 days after my surgery. Although it will take another month to get back to a normal diet and to doing all of the activities I was able to do prior to the surgery, I feel absolutely fine. Indeed, I was walking around my hospital room within 12 hours of my surgery and I was working remotely on my laptop the morning after my surgery. I am extremely happy with the surgery and the care I have received from Dr. Leeds. Before the surgery Dr. Leeds discussed at length (i.e., 45 minutes) the risks of the surgery (e.g., “There is <5% probability of a scary risk occurring such as stroke, heart attack, anesthesia problem, etc.”) and how each possible complication would be addressed. After the surgery Dr. Leeds visited me 4 out of the 5 days I was in YNHH and he gave me advance notice of the one day that he would not be able to visit. He had seemingly endless patience answering my and my wife’s many questions. At the beginning of each early morning visit he patiently waited while I called my wife and put her on speaker phone so she also could participate. Indeed, on one occasion when I was having difficulty getting my phone’s microphone to work, Dr. Leeds picked up my phone and quickly made the needed adjustments. Throughout my hospitalization I kept a notebook beside my bed and by the time of his next visit I typically had compiled 10-15 questions that he patiently and well answered one-by-one and each time he then waited for me to jot down a few notes before I went on to the next question. Whatever Dr. Leeds said he would do, he did and, in my opinion, he always gave me objective responses to my questions and took into account my background. Hence, when I asked about the likely intensity and time frame for post-surgical pain, he ripped off a corner of a piece of paper from a report that he had with him and drew a graph that showed pain intensity as a function of the number of post-surgical days. At least so far, my recovery and experience has been exactly as Dr. Leeds described before the surgery and has far exceeded my expectations. Of the >15 doctors and specialists who I can remember treating me over the last >70 years; Dr. Leeds has spent more time with me, has shown more compassion, and has graciously answered more questions than at least 14 of these other doctors. Dr. Leeds is personable, empathetic to my concerns, compassionate, and he is a great communicator both in terms of truly listening to my concerns, explaining the best way of addressing them, and at then doing so. He exudes confidence without a trace of condescension or arrogance and he has excellent bedside manner. Most importantly, based on my rapid recovery, ability to well tolerate a low residue diet soon after surgery, and the very small incisions (i.e., one is less than one inch long "
