What People Say About Dr. John Fahrbach IV, MD
Had a L5 S1 foraminotomy for stenosis on one side. I am a few weeks out with improvement in pain and numbness. To start physical therapy next week. Hard to follow the limited exercise instructions (minimal stairs, minimal exercise etc.) but worth it.

I find Dr Fahrbach to be honest, friendly, and comfortable to talk to. Had spinal surgery which was successful. Walking immediately. Entire experience was very good. I had tremendous pain before surgery, after surgery very little pain. After recovery I had no pain.
