Our family owes a debt of gratitude for Dr. Lankau's successful repair of a near-fatal kidney defect on our infant son at the age of only 4 weeks at Miami Children's Hospital. A second surgery was necessary a year later, and that was also a success. Our hearts go out to the family; we say a blessing for Dr. Lankau every year on our son's birthday. He will be 30 in September this year.

Dr. Lankau operated on me when I was just months old. He saved my life twice. First, he fixed a kidney issue I had where the tubes crossed over. Then, he helped to fix a leak that was occurring in my kidneys. He is an incredible man. He will be missed.

Dr. Lankau operated on me 1st back in 1992 when I was 6. He was suppose to go in and place a stint in my kidney to get it to function better-but being the magnificent surgeon he was- he realized that it was just a mass making me deathly ill and he removed it! He explained to me and my parents everything in such a sweet way! Then again in 1998 he removed my appendix which he said "burst in his hands" as soon as he removed it safely away from my open body! Oh my and here I am at the age of 28 with a healthy kidney transplant and living a fulfilling life! Thank God for placing the gentle loving soul and hands of Dr. Lankau in my life! May he rest in eternal peace.

Dear Fran. My son, Jamie, just told me that Charles had died and I am devastated. Charles, you and his loving mom (Aunt Margaret) never knew how much you meant to me and how the three of you were so important in my life. Watching you and Charles and all the love you had for each other and anyone around you was truly inspirational for me. Most of us go through life without realizing how we 'touch' others and often change their lives and give them hope from the example they set. All my love and prayers to you and yours.

Dr. Lankau operated on my 8 mth old son , 18 years ago. He was in my mind late last year, and I only now decided to google his name , to find him . I am truly sorry for your loss. He was a fine , honorable man. His expertise in such a delicate surgery was immeasurable for us. He tried to make it affordable for which we will always be grateful. He was truly a special man.
