      I had a neck fusion 3 levels the Dr. and his team were great I am still recovering
      |
      Dr. Loyola performed the surgical procedure microvascular decompression craniotomy (brain surgery) on me June 14, 2013 at Presbyterian Plano. He assured me he would take care of me with minimal scarring from the surgery. Unless I tell you, you would never know I had brain surgery. I have not had any pain from my disease trigeminal neuralgia since my surgery. Dr. Loyola and his staff was awesome to me!!!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
