Christine's First Surgery

First Consultation

Andy and Christine met with Dr. Pytynia and her staff in the MD Anderson cancer center in Katy. Dr. Pytynia will be the lead surgeon, and team leader for Christine's procedures. She specializes in head and neck cancers. She reviewed the biopsy and report from the remedial surgery performed by Dr. Winterstein the previous week. She proposed that an aggressive approach would be taken, which would be to remove the jaw bone and tissues, as well as some lymph nodes from the neck.
