Michael Burt Neurosurgeon Indiaanapolis Thanks for the poor medical advice and crappy surgery nearly 20 years ago. In case you don't remember me, I was the healthy young person and you hacked out L5 S1 at Community Hospital East. Six days later the disc re-herniated. One month later, you looked at the MRI and lied to me saying "it was a normal scar" Then you sent me to therapy. Wish you had sent me there instead of surgery. I still remember the first time you spoke to me in your office. You seemed very nonchalant about the whole thing. That should have been a red flag for me to run, but I was younger then and too trusting. You presented surgery like it was no more serious than getting my tonsils removed. Your advice was all just a big sales pitch. Months later, two other neuroseurgons looked at the MRI and told me it was very obvious, the disc re-heriniated. I cannot even begin to list all the simple joys ruined because of this botched surgery. - Dinners out at nice restaurants ruined - Selling my new car at a big loss, because the seat hurt my back. - Business travel ruined - Very few friends, since I must lay down often, and miss fun activities. Thanks for nothing. I hope you have a horrible retirement, filled with many years of chronic pain, and isolation.
