I have had a wonderful experience with back fushion. I am 2 weeks from surgery. He explained everything well. I felt very informed about all options and extremely comfortable with outcomes and results.

I was extremely scared to have two disc replaced at 36 years old but I am so happy I did it. A week prior to my surgery I met two people who had the same surgery by Schopler and told me how great their progress has been. I would do it again, only if SCOI and Dr Schopler did it. No complaints!!!
