Fred Critch's Story

Fred Critch When Fred found himself nearly unable to get through his days without pain and unusual symptoms, he knew something was wrong. He sought help with his primary care physician, Jason Primer, MD, an internist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, who performed an MRI. The results showed that Fred had a pituitary tumor that required surgery. James Chandler, MD performed the surgery, and Fred went home the next day. His recovery went splendidly, and within weeks after surgery, Fred finished the Ironman Triathlon just 75 days after surgery, and shortly after he finished his fastest marathon.
