Dr. Steven Tresser is an awesome spine surgeon. I had a L4/5 extrusion and could not stand or walk due to the excruciating pain. Dr. Tresser did a laminectomy/discectomy and a few hours later I could walk without pain and go up a few stairs. He is a great doctor and really cares about his...Read More
