Dr. Z performed surgery on my lower back to repair a ruptured disk that had kept me in agony for 11 months. The result was amazing. 7 months post surgery, I have no pain, only occasional aches, and I am able to play with the kids and dogs again.

I had an excellent all around experience before and after my back surgery. I would highly recommend, and I already have to many friends, without any hesitation. He is very easy to contact which helps with any doubts or questions that come up.
