DO , MRI & BONE DENSITY ANALYSIS, NEW APPT MA, MRI & BONE DENSITY WAS DONE, WENT TO THE 2S APPT WITHIN 2 WEEKS TIME, RESULTS WAS DETERMINED THAT SURGERY OF THE T-12 FRACTURE WOULD BE SCHEDULED AT THAT TIME, SURGERY WAS TO BE IN 2 WEEKS. Pre-Op was done at CCH, 2 DAYS LATER WAS MY SURGERY. THEY EXPLAINED THE SIRGICAL PROCEDURES, & SURGERY WAS EFFECIENT, & 1 HOUR LATER I WAS GOING HOME. NO PAIN, THANKS

Right from the initial visit with Dr. Nakata I was confident in his ability to fix my back. None of the subsequent visits changed my opinion. It was always clear what my problem was and how he would go about fixing it. My results have been miraculous, in my opinion, and I am thankful every day. Before the operation I was unable to walk without a great deal of pain. It has been a little over a year since and I can now walk with no pain. I am grateful to the good doctor!

Dr Nakata's approach is very professional, but comfortable. He used my MRI to demonstrate to me why I was having such pain and how he could fix that. He exudes confidence and I was very comfortable putting my back surgery in his hands. The results were, as I thought they would be, excellent. I am now pain free and getting my strength and flexibility back.
