Linda and Arthur Triplette love to travel. Last year their plans were interrupted by not one, but two surgeries. It began with Arthur not feeling quite right. He visited his UTMB primary care doctor who arranged for same-day x-rays. They showed a tumor in his stomach. Arthur's surgery was scheduled and went exactly as planned. A few months later, Linda's routine colonoscopy revealed polyps that had to be removed surgically. The same seamless care resulted in Linda's quick recovery. As Arthur goes on to say, "We could have gone anywhere. We chose UTMB. We knew this was our team." Linda says simply, "We got our lives back." You have a choice in your health care. The gastrointestinal team at UTMB is expert in every aspect of the digestive system, from routine screenings to highly complex procedures.
