Patient Reviews (1)
Surgery Cervical Posterior Fusion C5-C7 with Rods. It was the most horrific surgery. Every day since, the pain has been more severe. Per his suggestion I went to another Surgeon. This Surgeon had said, He, Dr. Strugar, did not do a complete Foraminotomy & Laminotomy. I can only pray he is a better surgeon, but I would never suggest anyone who is faced with a Cervical Fusion to consult with this Dr.. There are many more who are much more proficient that he. I live with this unforgiving pain.
