From Dr. Lampert:
Abdominal Wall Reconstruction: this man was born with multiple congenital duplications of his GI tract for which he underwent multiple life saving thoracic and abdominal surgeries as a baby. C. Everett Koop, the late pediatric surgeon and 13th Surgeon General of the United States under Ronald Reagan, performed life saving surgery on this man when he was a baby. Now he has grown into a highly functional and athletic man who was bothered by his subsequent abdominal and thoracic scar deformities. As he grew, the scar pulled his rectus abdominis muscles and umbilicus into an asymmetric position. Here he is 3 months after I performed an abdominal wall reconstruction and major scar revisions of the right chest and abdomen. His scars are still immature and fading, but he already has significant improvement. As a kid, I always looked up to Dr Koop and his stance against big tobacco. (Koop also had a really cool mustache-less beard and set male grooming trends that were not as popular before his time.). To have operated on the same great patient as the late great Dr C. Everett Koop feels pretty great!X
