Dr. Choi has performed two spine surgeries for me and has restored my ability to walk comfortably without pain and numbness. He is the one to go to for spinal surgeries. I feel fortunate to have him as my surgeon.

My last doctor refused to do more than one fusion at a time so I was glad to find someone who would do it all at once. Everything went well and I am very pleased with the results. I am...Read More
