I don't know why he is rated so good, he did surgery and then after the surgery told me he knew it wouldn't work! Then why did he do it? Was in a lot of pain after and now I need more surgery.

Dr. Fitzgibbons is excellent. He takes time to explain everything, answer your questions and prepare you for surgery. I was up and moving following my surgery within the day. I feel great and am continuing to improve everyday. I would highly recommend Dr. Fitzgibbons and his team.
