Minneapolis, MN |
My L5/S1 discectomy was a complete failure. I did not get any feeling back in my leg and have more pain in more places. I believe more nerve damage happened during surgery because now I have pain on the bottom of my foot ending my ability to run or even walk more than 200 ft. He responded by asking me if I wanted more surgery. He kept inaccurate records by saying I was a drinker and smoker. I'm neither and was never asked. I WAS a runner. He always said my pain level was less than what I marked

I didn't see Dr. Garvey at his current location. I saw him in 2005-2006 at another MPLS clinic. Due to a genetic bone disorder, I have been seeing orthopedics my entire 50 years. It is important to me to share my experience with Dr. Garvey because he made such a positive impact on me. I was experiencing problems for 2+ years & had seen many doctors of varying specialties, none of which could locate from where these issues were coming. He's my hero - professional, patient, careful, brave, best.
