I see Dr Zucherman for my back pain and have had past surgies and will be having another one soon. I wouldn't think of seeing any other orthopedic surgeon for treatment on my back , I first saw him when I was 18 yrs old for my first fusion and now I'm 53 waiting on my 4th fusion. Thanks Dr Zucherman for the great care you give me .
