Be careful with this doctor. He might at one point was great, but not anymore, he still uses old method for surgery that in the end don't work. My son had surgery with this doctor the whole process should have had take 6 months, but instead it will take a whole year and a re- surgery with another team of surgeons to get fixed something he should had done right the first time. Always, look for a second opinion and don't believe what hospital staff tell you about another professional
