Dr.Yeh tore my dural sleeve during surgery and didn't repair it properly and didn't tell us. Spinal fluid leaked into the disc space for two months. I ended up with osteomyelitis and almost died. I spent 35 days in the hospital. I was 28 years old when this happened. I am now 42 and crippled for the rest of my life because of this. I do not recommend Dr. Yeh.

He saved my life
Though nobody seems to know how I got them, I developed a seizure disorder at the age of 2. As I got older, they progressed and turned to Grand-mal seizures. At one point in time, I was taking 21 pills a day, and still could not control the problem. I was pronounced DOA 2x as a result in my childhood. After a series of tests that took several years, I qualified as a candidate to have brain surgery to control the problem. I was told that without the operation, I would die, it was just a question of when. I had the operation in 1988 by Dr.Yeh.I believe now, and always will, that this man saved my life. I still have to take a few tegretol each day, but that beats 21 pills! I now have what is called petal-mal's. When I have one, the only one that is aware of it is myself. I am still aware of what is going on around me. I only have trouble breathing for a matter of seconds and it is over.Thank You!

Dr Yeh did a fusion on me in 1994. In 1995 I went back to him, said I was in great pain, he said I was fine. I kept going back for 13 years, got an MRI each time, and he said I was fine. Finally I went to another surgeon who found I had a broken fusion. Yeh lied to me for 13 years.
