After having 3 fusions 10/15, I have more pain than ever. I can’t even stand up straight, and have more pain than ever. Went to another orthopedic surgeon, and he said that I probably couldn’t survive the surgery that I need. I have boney bumps on the place he operated on and are very painful. I can’t lean back on my church’s pew without much pain.

Honest physician! So impressed!
I have a serious back condition but since it's a workmans comp claim it seemed oddly difficult to get any straight answers out of the guy. He was also supposed to do some follow up on my case and talk to my pain Dr. and not a word was spoken. He was dodgy and there was something fishy about the appointment. I can't walk for 20 minutes without serious back pain, I can't sleep in a bed, if I lay down on my back I am in agonising pain and my right leg goes numb. R leg spasms L leg has sciatica.

Dr. Castro works miracles - Soon as surgery was completed I woke up without any pain that I had for many years. He answers all of your questions and does not rush you into any surgery. He is a perfectionist in doing his surgeries thus the result is your recovery time is shorten. I have issues with weak bones and slow healing in relation to weak bones. I was surprised that 2 of 3 fusions were completely healed in a little less than 3 months and the other fusion almost healed. Great follow up

This was my second back surgery with Dr. Castro. Both surgeries were very successful. I can even touch my toes after having three fusions!

I would definitely recommend Dr Castro to anyone. The reasons being when I was down literally pleeding for someone to help me. Dr Castro and his staff were the ones that made things happen. I believe he is a doctor for the right reasons. Not a salary.
