Patient Comments (1)
in San Mateo, CA |
Dr. Sommer did my highly successful laminectomy in 1991 at Good Samaritan hospital. I had a ruptured disc and was completely bedridden. Here I am, 25 years later, and my back is still going strong. I continued to ski until about 5 years ago (gave it up with the drought), and I still hike, bike, and swim. I would never have imagined that my back would be doing this well 25 years later, considering that I was a young age 23 at the time of surgery. Thank you, Dr. Sommer!
