I had spinal fusion and within a month after surgery I was walking over 2 miles a day. I had L3,L4 and L5 fused with 2 rods and 6 screws. Oh and I am 57 years old. I highly recommend.

Very helpful for my husband's back fusion. Hubby is still recovering, but so far-so good. Better and quicker results than we had hoped for because we really didn't know what to expect; blind faith. Surgery was 2 months ago-4 discs fused in lower back. Dr. Werner is very personable and answers all questions; not in a hurry like some doctors. Highly recommend him.

He was very awesome when it came to my health. He knew exactly what he was doing and informed me with all I needed to know about my fusion in my lower spine. He literally saved my life from becoming paraylzed. I can't thank him enough. Thanks to him I got my life back!
