    Went to Dr Andelkar in 2006 & had a successful seven & one half hr surgery. Dr Andelkar had to place a back brace in my lumbar with the screws having to be placed every which way as my back was so messed up. Was told by Dr Andelkar that he would like to use my back problems in his work & teachings at the Ohio Institute of Medicine up in Ohio. I gave him my permission. I highly recommend Dr Andelkar for anyone with back problems
