I had the lamina surgical procedure done. Its purpose was to relieve pressure caused by a bulging disk that painfully pushes on a nerve. The surgery was a success! I highly recommend Dr. Shah

Dr. Shah spent time with me explaining exactly what my surgery would entail and what the anticipated recovery time would be. My results were excellent for my fusion. I highly recommend him.
