He is a quack of a Dr. I don't recommend him. He put my rods in my spinal cord instead of the bone. Caused nerve damage and had to have surgery to remove hardware and have 2 more disk fused.

I waisted my time him. He did surgery on me and I had to have another surgery because he put my hardware in the spinal cord and it damaged 3 nerves down my left leg. I don't recommend going to this Dr.
