    I was extracting information on “Neill,” husband of Cindy Russell for a foundation database, when I ran across references to the controversial Dr. Jerome Canady. Neill posted on these boards from 10/31/07 – 11/27/07 and on his own web site. According to him, Dr. Canady used his invention, the Plasma Beam Catheter to remove every vestige of cancerous tumor at the cellular level that had been wrapped around the arteries and veins of Cindy’s liver. Doctors from John Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, and Pittsburg UPMC had said she was inoperable and gave her no more than 6 months to live. The case was reported on television news. Cindy passed away on 16 Nov 2009, having survived 2.35 years since her surgery and 2.69 years since her diagnosis, well over her 6 month expectation.

    Dr. Canady presently is associated with the Canady Surgical Group in Washington, DC. He refers to his invention now as a Plasma Surgical Scapel, with scalpel spelled scapel. I couldn’t find any other information on this device by Googling. However, there is information on a device with a similar name and similar purpose, the Micor-Plasma Surgical Scalpel, which is discussed in a NASA Tech Brief for 11/1/11 and in more detail at:

    I understand that. You are researching options, as all of us do. The threads regarding Dr. Canady date back to 2007 and on this board, no one else has spoken of him since. Have you been diagnosed with this cancer or, are you advocating for someone else?

    killthecancer……I am not sure whether Tom will come to this site therefore, I will take it upon myself to answer your question. Unfortunately, I have to report that Katia’s Dad had passed away soon after surgery. In fact, he never left the hospital. If you are considering a qualified physician regarding surgery for this disease I would make sure to check the reputation and medical records of such doctor. Please, let us know if we can help you in any way.

    My mother had surgery at MonValley Hospital one week ago by Dr. Canady to remove her Klatskin Tumor. He resected 40% of her liver and she is doing well, going home today; will start chemo/radiation in one week. She is 76 yrs. old. Dr. Canady is the most dedicated, passionate, caring doctor I have ever met. Just ask the other 4 families he did surgery on this past week, Katya’s dad included. WE ALL LOVE DR. CANADY!!! If anyone wants any info feel free to contact me.

    A very grateful daughter, Melody

    Dear all,

    Although it has taken some time, here we are, my sister and I, writing to you in search for your support at this horrible time. Our hearts still ake with pain and we are still finding it difficult to open up and write about it. Our father passed away on the 29th of November after battling very hard against this monster and for 15 days post surgery. His surgery was major, it lasted close to 13 hours and it involved removing 50 percent of his liver and pancreas, gall bladder, part of his stomach and intestines. Unfortunately his body and in particular his liver was already very weakened by the disease and he didn

    Dear Katia and Silvia Velasco….. My sincere condolences to you both and your Family. From your discription of how advanced his situation was, Your Father was an extremely strong and brave man. His decision to fight this desease was couragous. May he now without pain nor suffering rest in peace. I pray that God provides you and your family the strength to understand why he called upon your Father so soon in life.
    God’s Blessings,

    Dear Katia and Silvia,

    I really hoped that your absense meant good news. I am so saddened to hear that your dad passed away. I’m at an absolute loss for words. I just wish that we could all hug you both, and provide as much support as you need. You’re so right – 3 months is too short to even process what has happened. There should be so much more time…
