Dr. Frankel did my neck surgery 16 years ago. Unfortunately it has taken a beating over the years but the surgery has held fast. I can't say that for the rest of my body that took the accidental beatings. Just know it will be top notch surgery if you need it.

I had incredibly good results with both my lower back and and neck surgery. Dr Frankel explained the cause of my pain and numbness in my arm as well as the procedure and expected results in great detail . All my questions were answered in easily understood terms.
