    On August 27,2015 Dr. Senter performed a lamenectomy on me.L 3-4 with fusion and a graft. He was very professional and truthful about what I could expect both before and after sugery. It is now January 12,2016 and I am feeling very good. The pain I had in my right leg is gone and I am working to regain the strength. In it. I would highly recommend Dr. SENTER
