This will be the only Nero surgeon, to ever touch my body. I have felt 100% better, since my arterial discectomy and fusion. I have not had any pain, related to the surgery at all. Just difficulty swallowing, and even that wasn't a big deal. Immediate pain relief after surgery, and now I have the feeling back in my hands. Thanks Doc. ??
