in Quinlan, TX |
Dr. Ju performed surgery for my herniated disc. The procedure was successful and my recovery was quick. Dr. Ju followed my progress closely and I am very favorably impressed.
in Rockwall, TX |
Dr. Ju came to my rescue! Unfortunately the Team at the Back Institute didn't have time for me when I showed up at the facility in Rockwall, TX very much in pain and could not walk. In fact I felt as if I was causing them a great inconvenience. I ended up going to the ER, had an MRI. Dr. Ju reviewed it and saw an extremely herniated disc at L5/S1. He performed surgery and now, 6 weeks later I am pain free and walking! I will continue to see Dr. Ju due to chronic spine issues.
