I had Scheuermann's disease and Dr. Transfeldt performed my surgery to straighten my spine when I was 17. I cannot thank him enough- there are no words great enough to explain my gratitude for the fact that he changed my life. I thank God that there are people in this world that give so much of themselves to help others. He's brilliant and you cannot be in better hands if he is your doctor.
