I brought my 84 year old, wheelchair bound aunt to see Dr. Ghanayem today. She is in a wheelchair from a compressed vertebrae. He was very kind and thoughtful in his interactions with her. In the end, I appreciated his honesty. He said that in his opinion spinal surgery was too dangerous at her advanced age and that she was best to remain as is. Wow! I was so impressed that he did not try to sell surgery, and related to us the dangers of it at her age, and unlikelihood of a full recovery.
