    in Morris County, NJ |
    I just had a consult w/ Dr. Schwab at HSS. Almost 20 yrs ago, I had surgery (discectomy/laminectomy) for L5-S1 disc herniation w/poor results. Initial injury caused by volunteer "work" (Firefighter / EMT / Heavy Rescue) Surgery really didn't correct the excruciating pain I've been wrestling with for years now. I've seen many docs here in NJ w/no answers. I'm now 51 & can't live w/ the pain. SO.. Though a brutal ride, we went in to NYC.. He has incredible diagnostic skills & is VERY KIND!)

    I was suffering from severe back pain for over 26 years. As I got older, surgery became more and more risky. I found Dr Schwab at HSS and before I knew it, he told me that he could help me and allow me to live a life without pain. It's been 5 weeks since surgery and I FEEL GREAT.. Dr. Schwab is humble, kind, soft spoken, gentle in his bed side manners, he is truly a miracle worker. He performed spinal fusion, decompression and installed 26 screws up and down my spin with metal cages and rod
