    I had my back surgery 5 years ago I was in so much pain I could hardly walk. Dr. Howe did a surgery where he but rods and bolts in my back it took about a year to recover. I can now do everything I did before except skiing. Thank you Dr. Howe you gave me my life back. You were real prompt on appointments, you also would check my grandsons Dylan's back just to make him feel you cared about his back. I have recommended you to my friends with back problems.
