      Had a second fusion done at SCOI. First one was done by Dr.Grossman. Dr.Schopler explained my issues and offered his solutions. Everything went according to plan. Surgery is not a perfect science. I see people all over the Internet complaining about the procedures, the recovery, pain, etc. The desire to get better and recover is the responsibility of the patient. Following instructions and using available resources is a must. I would recommend Dr.Schopler and SCOI.

      My experience with Dr. Schopler was absolutely awful. I wouldn't recommend him at all. He was very inconsiderate about my pain. When he gave me an epidural he hit my dura causing a spinal leak. With that i ended up in excrusiating pain & admitted into Memorial hospital. There I got a MRI, he said he was unable to see the leak. I had 100% of the symptoms. (He practiacally told me I was faking it) They gave me a blood patch at SCOI & it only held for a few days. I ended up getting a second opinion

      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.
