What People Say About Dr. Alexis Waguespack, MD
Reply
Dr. A. Waguespack has saved me twice from being a parapalegic. Lower spine surgery about 8 years ago, after being bedridden four months, inserted rods & bolts & I was up walking soon after operation. Oct2017 Dr. Waguespack saved me again from being parapalegic-several vertebrea about to pierce my spinal column. She fused C3,C4,C5,C6,C7,T1&T2. Wear neck brace & Bone Growth Stimulator part-time now, & am healing slowly, but have good range of motion. very little pain. She is God's Gift to Me!
