After seeing 6 other doctors about pains between my shoulder blades, who all just simply told me that the issue was in my neck, Dr. Kravetz explaining and showing how issues in my neck can and will affect other parts of the body. He advised me that issues in my neck IS the reason for the pains in my upper back. He perform a cervical fusion of the C5,6 C6,7. On my 3 F/U (90 days out), I advised that the pain was worse, and reminded him that he said that the neck was the source of pain. He said that he didn't say that, but that it was simply a trigger. A few months after that, I received a letter from MIS that Dr. Kravetz has left the organization and has moved to Houston. I went to see another doctor about my pains, and was advised that the previous doctor (Phillip Kravetz) that performed the cervical fusion did not perform a bone graph in C5/6, but simply placed the hardware in between the vertebra and screwed it in. Surgery had to be repeated and corrected by neuro spine surgeon

My name is Phillis Ruggieri, I want to thank Dr. Kravetz for giving me back my life and for helping me to know that there is life after back surgery! He is a wonderful, compassionate, caring doctor. I would recommend him and have recommended him to my friends . He's not one that gives up on his patients either. I was very sad when he had to tell me that he was moving.. YES, I do trust only him and yet have not found a doctor to replace him.. HE IS MISSED! Mrs. Phillis Ruggieri
