I’ve been an RN for 37 years, the last 10 of which I have worked with chronic back pain. I was told my back and spine were held together by scar tissue, Today I am regaining full function of my back and legs post back surgery with intervertebral cage placement. I cannot say enough about the skill level and professionalism of Dr Yeh. I highly recommend him!
