Pain free thanks to Dr. Dagam. Had severe pain in my legs even making it difficult to walk without a cane. After he performed a spinal fusion with pedicle at St. Luke's Medical center in Milwaukee on March 10, 2015 I felt instant relief. Now one year later and completely healed I feel great at 76...more
