Excellent results Had laminectomy and fusion. Felt great in about a week and only reason I limited my activities was because he told me I had to otherwise I would have never known. Every other doctor told me I would be down for 6 months to 1 year.

Dr. Ammerman is a knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. His manner and willingness to explain procedures inspire inspire confidence in his patients. If I ever need surgery again he will be my first choice even though he is not close to where I live.
