      Dr. Kuwamura is my hero. I had severe sciatic pain for 8 months that did not respond to injections. It was due to an issue with a disc in my lower back pinching a nerve. I had a microdiscectomy done by Dr. Kuwamura last Wednesday and I feel amazing. The pain is gone, I am so excited to have my life back. I am very grateful for his expertise, his wonderful bedside manner. He explains everything well and he listens. He has been where his patients are and he truly understands. I am so happy!
