Patient Comments (1)
in Quathiaski Cove, BC |
Dr. Nichols took me on as a patient when many others thought my situation was too complicated. Dr. Nichols has performed two cervical fusions on me, fusing two levels each time. The last surgery was complicated by the need to remove some previously installed hardware. Both surgeries were a success and provided me with much needed pain relief.
