    Truly a magnificent doctor, I can't begin to describe how this man saved my life! I was wheeled into his office after rupturing my L4 & L5 and severing my S2 & S3, which caused paralysis from my waste down, including loss of bladder and bowel function. After my surgery I was up walking around that night with the help of a walker, my prognosis 95% recovery!!!! 6 years and 1 month later I am running my first marathon, this fall! This man truly has the hands of an angel!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
