Patient Comments (1)
in Frisco, TX |
This doctor performed 3 discectomies on me before finally agreeing to fuse what should have been done the 2nd time. The fusion he did did not take because he did not use enough material, according to Chief Neurosurgeon at Hospital Univ of Pa. I was in pain for 10 years from what this man did to me. See a Neurosurgeon if you have spinal nerve pain. I wouldn't go back if he were the only doctor in Texas.
