Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Wither was incredible. He comforted me when I came in from the accident and his whole team treated me like family. He completed surgery on my neck fusing my c5, c6, c7, and t1. He was in surgery for 6 hours and had perfect outcomes. I am happy to be walking from his work today.
