I had a meningioma about the size of a chicken egg and now 95% of it is gone thanks to Doctor Howard and his team. I'm very grateful for the dedication and knowledge of his team for helping me through this.

I had a cervical spinal laminectomy w/ fusion at levels C5-6 and C6-7 2 wks. ago. Surgery went very well. I woke up with three fingers I could not feel, but it was explained to me sometimes the swelling from surgery can cause some numbness. By the time I discharged they were back to normal. Dr. Howard and his staff were very informative and let me know all the details of the procedure as well as what to expect. I felt that he was very trustworthy, and would recommend him for spinal surgery

Instead of operating on me to correct my paralysis, Dr. Howard III chose to lie in order to protect his fellow surgeon, Dr. Patrick W. Hitchon. Dr. Hitchon is the neurosurgeon who intentionally paralyzed me. Since Dr. Howard III chose to lie I am now paralyzed for life. BEWARE of this surgeon.
