He put into my husband's spine screws that were incorrectly positioned and were pushing against his nerves. This resulted in extreme pain and extreme muscle spasms immediately after surgery. This doctor didn't resolve this problem even after the imaging scans showed the screw misplacement. We were unaware of the reason for the problem until we consulted a doctor for a second opinion and he found the reason by reviewing the imaging reports. Irreversable damage had been done to the nerves.
