If you want a doctor that ignores every thing you say , and if you want a doctor that demands a ridiculous amount of testing, then this is your guy. Even if you beg him not to do...Read More

Dr. Laich did my first Microdiscectomy in 2007 which gave me 6 decent years. I was told this was only a temporary fix and another more involved surgery would eventually be needed. In 2014 my symptoms came back again. I saw Dr. Laich and it was now time for the fusion.I saw another surgeon who said...Read More
