I have complete confidence in Dr. Fry, I'm 8 days out from a Laminotomy 5th lumbar, and have no pain at all in my hip and leg. Just amazing. I was previously misdiagnosed by another doctor who was talking a hip replacement - sure glad I got a second opinion and was referred to this great surgeon...more
