Dr. Kahn is just an incredible surgeon in every way! I came to him and to Vanderbilt because I was faced with a complicated surgery. I felt that he, and Vanderbilt, represented my best chance to have a good outcome. In addition to being such an excellent surgeon, he is just so kind and so concerned. I could not have asked for better care than I have received , and I will be forever grateful.
