At the start of the month, Duck Dynasty’s Missy and Jase Robertson informed their Instagram followers of the tragic news.
Dr Mia Robertson’s paediatrician, David Genecov, died in a motor vehicle collision. To correct Mia’s cleft lip and palate, renowned pediatric surgeon Genecov changed her life.
Missy, 51, wrote on Instagram, “Dr Due to his innovative medical inventions and high level of skill, David changed Mia’s life in ways that no other surgeon could have. “.
“His pleasant demeanour helped her (and me) unwind, but his constant reassurance to both of us that we could succeed in difficult tasks helped Mia and I grow stronger than we could have imagined. “.
Missy commended Genecov for being able to relate to his young patients, particularly Mia. “Jesus was more than we could ask for or expect,” Missy wrote about her cleft journey.
While we deeply regret his passing, we are grateful for the work he did for Mia and his cleft patients as well as the legacy of medical advances he had left for future generations. “.
“A fantastic person has benefited Dr David’s patients, the International Craniofacial Institute, and their families. “.
As she continues, Missy talks about how challenging it was to tell Mia. “She can’t remember her life before Dr David,” Missy wrote. During this terrible time, she urged her followers to pray for Genecov’s family during this terrible time.
According to D Magazine, Genecov died in a car accident in North Dallas. According to Dallas police, the surgeon was operating on a convertible Corvette with another male passenger when he lost control of the car.
His car was involved in a collision with another vehicle that was travelling in the opposite direction. The convertible was thrown off, along with Genecov’s travelling companion.
The injuries suffered by the other accident participants were healed. The doctor, however, passed away from his wounds.
Genecov oversaw the program’s craniofacial surgery department at Children’s Medical Centre Plano. He had a good reputation in his industry and was curious about other medical problems.
He served as the CEO and President of Dialectic, a biotechnology business that developed technology for treating cancer.
He also participated in the 2003 Medical City Dallas team successfully separating Egyptian twin boys. The three children, daughter, granddaughter, and wife of Genecov, are all still alive.
Following Mia’s successful cleft palate surgery in 2014, Missy and Jase, 54, founded the Mia Moo Foundation.
The foundation is “dedicated to raising awareness and funds for cleft lip and palate treatments,” according to its website. Cole Roberson, 24, and Reed Robertson, 27, are Jase and Mia’s other kids.
