Patient Comments (1)
in Shepherdsville, KY |
Dr Finizio called me as he read my MRI in September 2013 to express I needed to keep my appointment. He was specific in his explanation and was explicit and graphic in his description on what could occur if I did not get the surgery. I had neck surgery in December 2013. The surgery went very well. Dr. Finizio and two other surgeons corrected my curvature issue and the stenosis problem by fusing C4-C7 with plate, 8 screws, and cadaver bones. I am doing very well. I trust his abilities.
