    Dr Verska performed surgery on me 11 years ago. He was fixing a herniated disk in my lower back. After the initial surgery I found out he worked on the wrong side. I had to have a second surgery on the correct side. He left bone chips which caused permenant nerve damage. I am in constant debilitating pain. I am not the only patient he did this to. Be careful with this one!!
