I can't thank Dr. DeWald enough for fixing my back, I was all humped over, and everyone I see now tells me how nice and straight I look, he did everything to make a patient feel comfortable, I would recommend him to everyone I know, I live in Ohio and it was well worth the trip.....I will just be glad when I don't have to wear the brace any more.....His nurse Anna is also wonderful, everytime I ever called about anything, she always got back to me......Rush is a great hospital.

 |  BEST DOCTOR EVER  |  show details
Aug 8th, 2012

every time I go hiking, running, skiing or kayaking, I think of this doctor and how his skillful hands changed my life. I had previous failed fusion and crippling pain. also 65 degree curvature. at least 5 differnt surgeons, including neurosurgeons, told me that they couldn't help me. I couldn't walk more than 10 feet without being in pain - I could barely go to work... it took 16 hours of intricate spinal surgery to fix me (how someone could operate for what amounts to 2 full workdays, I'll never know). I now live my life pain-free. Thanks, Dr D!
