    This Dr. was referred to me by Univ. of Calif. Medical Center in San Francisco. He had to do two revision surgeries to fix my back from a previous botched surgery by a highly advertised spine center in Reno. He did an outstanding job and after a year now, I am almost totally pain free. An excellent surgeon.
