Very good experience and result with injections.
in Munroe Falls, OH |
He performed cervical diskectomy and fusion surgery 15 years ago (2001) and my neck pain and motion is flawless and much better than expected all these years later. Recently had lumbar problem and series of injections - working great and relieved the very severe pain. Would always recommend him.
