Prior to my laminectomy fusion in December 2015, I was basically confined to my house and in severe pain for nearly an entire year. I was apprehensive to have this procedure performed, but was put at ease by Dr. Prusick and his diagnosis and recommendation. The surgery was a success, and I'm happy to say, as I'm leaving my last follow up appointment, that I'm PAIN FREE! What a change in a year! I would not hesitate to recommend D. Prusick and his staff to my family and friends.

Doctor played spinal fusion surgery down from beginning. First I was told recovery 1-2 months. Then 3-4 and everyone is different. Then 4-6, up to a year. He started physical therapy at a little over 2 months, which normally would have been aquatic but since my incision wasn't healed he had me start regular which turned out to be more painful since most doctors don't start that kind of PT until after 3 months. To make everything even more difficult getting pain medication was a nightmare.
