Chalmette, LA |
Dr. Zatvatsky did my Surgery in I believe in July of 2013 in New Orleans La. Also told me i would be Better and would not need a cane to walk with after surgery . HERE IT IS 2017 and still walking with a cane . Never did see him after the Surgery only saw his Residents. Not a Fan of him

Dr. Zavatsky did the spine fusion on my L4 & L5, he also removed a cyst on my spine. I had back problems for 20 years and had enough of pain pills. The surgery was great and I was walking the following day, and went home the next day. I am 72 yrs. old and he fixed my back on May26,2015. He is my guardian angel. I can do what ever I have to do. My husband passed away 5 months ago and if I hadn't had the surgery I would not have been able to help him when he fell 3 times.

I had a pain in the lower left side of my back due to a prior surgery years before. All I wanted was to have this corrected. Dr. Zavatsky told me I can't guarantee you a homerun but I CAN guarantee that you will feel better after my surgery than you do now After surgery I was in agony!!! He had to go back in 5 days later for 5 hours but the pain was still there.The worst problem was in my legs. I lost complete use of my lower body.It took many months of rehab and I still have pain,TERRIBLE
Unfortunately there are never guarantees in spine surgery. Revision surgery can be complicated and its not easy trying fix a previous surgeon's work. I always do my best to give each and every patient the best possible outcomes my hands can deliver. Patient expectations are not often aligned with the surgeon's and for that I apologize. Leaving an area to move closer to family can often be interpreted at patient abandonment. But please do not ever hesitate to contact me on my cell or e-mail.
