I saw Dr. Harbach for a herniated L5-S1 disc with horrible sciatic pain and with his help and the help of his PA, Kraig Holtorf, I'm back to 100% levels of functioning.

Dr Harbach performed cervical neck surgery with disc removal and fusion over 10 years ago. Never had neck pain after recovery, unlike many friends who had similar surgeries with other doctors. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Harbach for neck surgery!!
