I have a lumbar Surgery with Dr Betancourt, with excellent results, but I mess up the Surgery when I get into a pool, messing up my Surgery. Dr Betancourt is a great Surgeon, dedicated to his patients.

Dr betancourt did surgery on me and now I am getting seizures and paralysis.I use to be able to walk 5 miles a day and I'd still have medication leftover.mow after he did surgery I was in recovery and had a surgery then i was paralyzed for days but the dr said it was me pretending and after that he dissmissed me from his care and said it was diabetic nerve damage.I've never had diabetes.this dr is a fraud and only does the surgery for insurance purposes.I needed another surgery on another 2 disc
