In 2005 I was told by Drs at LBCH that they didn't have the expertise to save my 3mo. old infant,they were only relieving his pain. He had a Spinal Cord Lipoma from C/3 to T/8, it was crippling him. His R arm & legs were severely affected. A dear friend found Dr. McComb & my child was air-lifted to CHLA. Shortly after, Dr. McComb saved my sons life! I can not find the words to express our gratitude, I thank God for Dr.McComb. ??

Our 7 month old daughter needed surgery for saggital craniosynostosis and we referred to Dr. McComb's office. He was very confident and extremely proficient at these procedures and put my wife and I at ease right away. He was happy to answer any questions or concerns we had and took his time seeing us. The surgery was a success and our daughter was back to normal in a week. She is recovering nicely and back to her happy self. We are grateful to have been in such good hands.
