Dr. Gebhard gave me my life back. There is no question that he allowed me to be active without dramatic pain when other doctor's said I had no options. He performed a difficult and complex surgery with better results than I thought I would be able to expect. I could not be more grateful.

I fell about 18 feet and landed on my back. Crushed my L2 and fractured the L1 & L3. He fused L1 to L3 and rebuilt L2
