Thank you for your brilliant knowledge and experience. Another Surgeon would have fused the wrong vertebrae. You cured the most intense headaches ever!

Dr Muir is an exceptional surgeon! I went in due to the pain in my lower back and found out I needed 4 through 7 fused in my neck also or I could have spinal cord issues. Was grateful that they completely checked me out and found all the issues I was dealing with. Dr.Muirs entire staff including he himself are incredibly compassionate and knowledgeable! Going in the for my lumbar shortly. I would recommend Dr Muir to all with spine issues! You couldn't find a better doctor!
