Patient Comments (2)
in Fargo, ND |
I left a review in early October of 2016. Since then I had a neurostimulator implant trial in Fargo that did not help me (not done by Dr. Pinto) and had a follow-up visit with Dr. Pinto in January 2017 where a laminectomy was scheduled for L4/L5. During surgery on February 3 he found a fractured facet joint and performed an L4/L5 fusion. He has referred me for selective root nerve blocks and an EMG. I have done PT but my right leg pain is as bad as it was before the fusion. Future is TBD.

I want to let others know, that my experience with Dr. Pinto was, and still is amazing. He is honest, and really cares about his patients. It was and is worth the 4.5 hour drive. Thank you Dr. Pinto for putting me back together again.
