Patient Perspective – Gary Waymire, Colorectal Cancer

After a large polyp was discovered in Gary Waymire's rectum following a routine colonoscopy, he sought a second opinion at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Jonathan Efron, M.D., director of colorectal surgery, and his multidisciplinary team used a series of aggressive and innovative surgical procedures as part of Waymire’s treatment plan. Waymire, now cancer-free, makes the most out of life’s simple pleasures, including walking 8 to 9 miles each day and spending precious moments with his wife, Dawn Waymire.
