    Dr. Bahkru performed my surgery earlier this year and he is truly an amazing doctor.  His expertise and professionalism was very reassuring, especially at that moment in my life when I thought that my life was over. Thanks to Dr. Bahkru’s decisions and insight I can say that I am pretty sure I am going to make it. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer  and this is the second time that I have been diagnosed with cancer, which is devastating at the age of 27. I truly believe that doctor Bahkru is like an angel sent from heaven to save women from this horrible disease. Him and the staff at Winne and MD Anderson are so special. The quality of care they offer far exceeded my expectations. I am still in treatment and not sure what the future will hold, but I can say that doctor Bahkru and his staff and colleagues saved my life. Thank you. I am happy that he is being recognized for his hard work .

    Dr. Bakhru performed my surgery 6 weeks ago. I had a very large pelvic mass that no one was quite certain about. Dr. Bakhru made me feel very secure in his belief that the mass was not a cancer. When I awoke after surgery and discovered that I was cancer free, I was so relieved.
    In the future, I will refer all my friends to this wonderfully, talented doctor.
