Office Visit: Dr. Manu Dua
After he was diagnosed with oral cancer in July, this Townie had less than two weeks to find a locum who could help keep his practice open for months while he recuperated from surgery. Over eight hours, five surgeons removed half his tongue, transplanted skin and the radial artery from his left hand to his left tongue, and grafted skin from his thigh to cover his arm. The ordeal left him with “a burning desire to make the best of my second chance in life,” he says.
