Patient Reviews (1)
in El Paso, TX |
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
