DR Ruiz came into the waiting room with a model of a human spinal cord, he began to tell me what was going wrong in my lower spinal cord. He told me how he would fix my problem and then he told me why he would do it that way. With in 2 mos after surgery I have no pain in my leg's nor my back as I did before surgery . I feel better now than I have in the past 6 year's. I would highly recommend DR Ruiz. There is not enough space here to tell how great my life has changed because of DR Ruiz
