I had to have Burr holes because I had 2 subdural hematomas. I feel this doctor saved my life and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

My best friend Steve P was a patient of Dr. Lytle. He was operated on for an arachnoid cyst on the spine. He drove his self to the hospital and walked in on his own and little did he know it would be the last steps he ever took. He has been paralyzed every since the surgery. If that wasn't strange enough he has never spoke a word or even seen Dr. LYtLe since the surgery. He has been told by other Dr's as well as the folks at Care Partners that this was attributed to a surgical error.

Dr. Lytle saw my father in law at Mission Hospital and it was the best experience I have ever had with a doctor. Dr. Lytle and his team have went above and beyond. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. Wendy M
