Patient Comments (1)
in Albrightsville, PA |
I received back surgery for a fractured vertebra in July when Dr. Colpan implanted two rods and 8 screws to secure my back. Prior to surgery, the doctor was very up front in telling me about the percentages of success. After surgery I had no infection and no mishaps. The fractured vertebra was impinging on my spinal column and the surgery removed bone fragments without consequence. The doctor visited while I was in the hospital and at 6 months after. I am now back to 100% health.
