Patient Comments (1)
Houston, TX |
Dr Marco did a total spine repair on me 10 years ago this month. I was in a wheelchair and the surgery put me back on my feet. It enabled me to take care of my husband, who had Parkinson's, until he passed away. Doctors are amazed when they see my X-rays. I will be eternally grateful to Dr Marco for getting me out of the wheelchair.
