Patient Comments (2)
in West Chester, PA |
Dr Fras did a two level spinal fusion on my spine in November, 2014. I had two vertebrae that slipped out of place largely as a result of a excessive golf swing. I had been using a walker and was on oxycodone and using a walker for two months before surgery. I have not taken as much as an aspirin since the surgery and am back to playing golf albeit with a somewhat more moderate golf swing twice a a week. Dr Fras is a great surgeon. He gave me my life back.
Dr Fras has an excellent bedside manner, he spends quite a bit of time answering questions, explaining diagnosis and surgical intervention if needed. Dr Fras does not rush into surgery, he will try other avenues first, ie: PT, pain management, etc, prior to recommending surgery if needed. He is easy to talk to and has a wonderful personality, and has incredible knowledge in orthopedics, I trust him completely and would allow him to perform surgery on myself or any family member again.
