Patient Comments (1)
in Bella Vista, AR |
I had three surgeries by Dr. McCarthy. The first surgery I had was in May of 2012 when he performed a surgery to remove a Herrington Rod that had back in my spine for 33 years. He said he had a plan for me where I would have the old rod removed, put in new rods, and that I could return to work full-time and feel like I did years ago. Went through with procedures and had a lot of broken hardware that had to be removed and and now has left me permanently disabled with horrible pain.
