I had surgery by dr. Loftus and he did a terrible job on my back. The scar down my spine was not that large that he couldn't have stitched it instead of stapling the wound. 2nd was my hip which was 4" and again no stitches. I called and sent photos to show him. The box in my hip is not buried it sticks out and you can see a complete Square and causes me pain. The scar on my spine has a bubble in the middle that looks like a nipple. That was two weeks ago and he never responded. Disappointed.
