My Mom was diagnosed with stage IV cancer, which spread to her spine, causing a nearly complete spinal cord injury. Dr Rovner provided us with a second opinion - and thank goodness we went to him! He arranged to have her transferred and performed emergency spinal surgery on a gorgeous sunny Sunday. She is now walking with a walker and performing her activities of daily living independently. We will all be forever thankful for your skill, compassion, selflessness and wonderful bedside manner.
