      He understands the pain I'm in.Also helped with rehabilitation.

      Dr. Pollina was very understanding and sincere. He took the time to understand my pain and together we planned a course of action. After my surgery, we discussed a plan to lower my medication and eliminate it completely. Everything went well and I am free of all pain medication. Thank you Dr. Pollina.
      in Roseville, MI |
      Dr Pollina was very empathetic at first. After a couple months he suggested injections. I had a caudal injection which actually caused intolerable pain that lasted for 4-5 days.Following that he convinced me to get a facet joint injection with the same result. I had 3 more injections hoping that it would eventually ease the pain. One day I noticed how much he was charging my insurance-ASTRONOMICAL! The injections did not help at all. I then found out spinal injections are rarely effective.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
