He misdiagnosed the problem as severe spinal stenosis, assuring that it would correct the partial paralysis in both legs and restore the ability to urinate normally. Instead the deterioration in the leg muscles has continued to where standing is impossible and a Foley catheter is a necessity.

Dr Schmitt performed a discectomy/laminectomy for radicular pain from a herniated disc. The surgery made my pain much worse and has destroyed my life. Dr. Schmitt abandoned me when things started going bad. He now works in Houston and I would avoid him like the plague. I'd give up my life savings to be able to go back in time and choose another doctor (it is already costing me a fortune). Once the surgery is over and your spinal nerves are permanently damaged, there's nothing you can do about it for the rest of your life.

Avoid at all costs. Nice to your face before surgery. After surgery when things go wrong, he's avoid you. It's a joke he gets paid for surgical procedures that destroys people's lives. He wasn't careful during my surgery and severely damaged two of my spinal nerves.

My life has been utterly destroyed by his failed surgery and he couldn't care less. Went in to surgery to remove a disc piece from one spinal nerve and came out with problems still and that nerve another nerve damaged (which is causing my life to be ruined- and there's nothing that can be done for it).
