Dr. Aguwa is a magician! I’ve dealt with back pain for several years. Over the past 2 years my quality of life was at times miserable. I spoke with several doctors and received no relief. I met with Dr. Aguwa and instantly knew he was sincere and truly cared about helping me! It’s been only 5 weeks...more

Dr. Aguwa is THE MAN! After a 3 year battle with lower back pain and loss of feeling to my right leg, I am completely pain free within just a few short weeks of surgery. He and his entire team were very informative and kept me relaxed through a stressful time. I'm very thankful for his steady hands...more
