Soon he was no longer able to participate in activities the way he once did and was experiencing a lot of pain and recurring symptoms. Hoping to avoid using an ostomy bag for the rest of his life, he turned to Michael Harris, MD, chief medical officer and gastrointestinal surgeon, who performed a complex reconstructive operation called the J Pouch surgery to improve Greg’s quality of life.
