What People Say About Dr. Frank Tomecek Jr, MD

George Ketchum July 2016 had surgery to fuse S1 and L1 an tie S1, L1 and L2 together with rods. I was left with no felling in my left foot. Rehab could not do anything to improve. Doctor made no effort for a solution. I now have damage to L3 and L4 joint. MRI and XRAYS show the fusion of S1 and L1 is not complete. The spacer between L1 and L2 has moved. The 2 screws into L2 protrude into the L2 and L3 joint. I now require surgery to redo what Dr. Tomecek and fix the new problem.

Mr perfect told me he was perfect and my surgery would be perfect. When I woke up in my bed I knew instantly something was very wrong. My back felt like I had a nerve was touching something and hurt every time I moved. I could not get anything for pain as the Doctor told them not to give me anything. I had to have another surgery in 2 days to try and fix his screw up. He still states it was not his mistake. I have had another surgery to try and fix it. It did not help. I still suffer in pain.

Once I was referred to Dr. Tomecek for two crumbling vertebrae in my neck everything happened quickly and efficiently. His scheduling girl (I would give anything if I could remember her name to give her full credit) was amazing at getting all my tests, appointments, and surgery scheduled quickly and flowing smoothly. Tulsa bone & Spine hospital was like staying in a 5* hotel. Through the entire process I felt well cared for and constantly informed on my care and recovery process.
