    Where can I start. I was suffering from 10 level pains for almost 3 years before meeting Dr.Z after my initial appt.It was discovered over 90% spinal cored was consumed by bone growth from a previous surgery. Chances of walking after surgery were less than 95%. I'm happy to say my pain levels have dropped to 5-7. I got most of my feeling to my legs,am still able to walk with a cane. I still have some complications,but considering the diagnosis he did amazing work. He'll treat you like family!
