I am 79 years old and considered a high risk patient. Dr Hubschmann took on the challenge of repairing my entire lumbar spine and gave me my life back. He consistantly communicated with my family to keep them up to date and answered all of their questions. He and his staff were always just a phone call away. Thanks to his brilliant mind and amazing skill, I now can enjoy my remaining years with out the excruciating pain I've been suffering with.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Hubschmann to anyone the needs his services. My mother had severe spondylolisthesis of the entire lumbar spine. She was a high risk patient due to her age (78) and the fact that she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. His presurgical consult was very comprehensive and edulcational. He took the time to answer all of our questions. Her surgery was complicated and extremely long (8 hours). He, and/or the resident staff were available 24/7 for questions.

Horrible pain before surgery. No pain after surgery. Dr. Hubschmann was great!
Dr. Hubschmann & his residents denied that anything was wrong with me post operatively. I had complications from the moment I woke up from surgery. I knew that something was very wrong, but he wouldn't listen! When I went to another surgeon, after having all new tests,the new surgeon found that the screw was in my spinal canal & had to take out alll hardware on right side,& now I have permanent nerve damage & foot drop on right side. My life will never be the same & I can't walk or work!
