Patient Comments (1)
in Kealakekua, HI |
I had a broken bone that didn't fuse. Dr. Smith installed a titanium plate in an attempt to fuse the bone. As soon as I woke up after the surgery, I immediately felt significant pain and pins and needles going down my affected limb (none of which was here prior to the surgery). When I asked Dr. Smith about these symptoms he "claimed" they were due a "nerve block" and it would eventually go away. Its now over 10 years later and these symptoms have never gone away and are worse than ever !
