in Chester County, PA |
Extremely knowledgeable. I have the greatest confidence in him, absolutely marvelous Doctor! He listens to patient and very clearly explains what needs to be done.
in Smyrna, DE |
08/12 Dr. Fisher put a Prodisc C in my neck. 09/12 he put another disc in my neck. 09/15 the pain was so bad I sought treatment elsewhere, the vertebrae between the two Prodiscs was crushed and part of the artificial disc was laying on my spinal cord. A very serious injury that needed immediate attention which could have caused me to be paralyzed from the shoulders down. Two major surgeries in one week and one year late I'm still suffering the effects.
