    in Moorpark, CA |
    I have suffered for years with low back pain and pain in both legs. After meeting with several surgeons I chose Dr Levesque. I had my surgery in May 2015. The surgery was a complete success and I am pain-free in my back and legs. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Levesque to anybody.
    in Tarzana, CA |
    I was referred to Dr Levesque in late October; I'd suffered debilitating lower back pain for 7 years. Quality of life was poor, my acting affected, golf a fond memory. I brought in a new MRI, discussed approaches and scheduled surgery on Nov 17th. I left Cedars the next morning, my pain now a 2-3. For the next 6 weeks I did no lifting, twisting or bending. This morning we met, I bent over and put both knuckles on the floor, then stood up. No pain. I'll be 72 in Feb. Thank you!
