    I was in excruciating pain from a ruptured disk at L 4-5, Dr. Lyons was thorough in his explanation about the procedure, and performed my surgery perfectly. He literally gave me my sanity and life back. It's really amazing being strechered into the hospital-couldn't walk, have surgery, walk-out hours after the surgery and pain free!
