      Dr Verska performed surgery on me 11 years ago. He was fixing a herniated disk in my lower back. After the initial surgery I found out he worked on the wrong side. I had to have a second surgery on the correct side. He left bone chips which caused permenant nerve damage. I am in constant debilitating pain. I am not the only patient he did this to. Be careful with this one!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
