Thank you Dr. Wolfla!

So here I am again. In the summer of 2015 the top of my spine collapsed above the first fusion. I literally shrunk 3 inches! I returned to Dr. Wolfla and with out question I had to have another fusion. This time he had to take out the old hardware and install new hardware that covered 8 levels. I had no choice and went ahead and had the surgery. Dr. Wolfla not alone is truly an amazing surgeon but he was there for me every day after the surgery, even on a Sunday and holiday he was there! I'm now 6 months out and this past Monday was able to do spring clean up on my farm from winter. How do you really explain that, I never thought that would be possible again and felt great the following days after working. I couldn't even empty a dishwasher before the surgery. There isn't much more that I can say since this really says it all! Thank you Dr. Wolfla!!

Awesome surgeon!

Dr. Wolfla is the best Doctor in the world if you ask me! I suffered for 2 years or more with my neck injury. I was very afraid to have surgery and just dealt with it. missed a lot of work and finally decided to do something about because it was not going away on its own. my therapist suggested him and praised him tremendously. so I went with him. my neck is almost like it was before I injured it. if I were you and you are looking for an awesome surgeon, he is the one!

Five Stars

I had spinal fusion surgery (L4-L5-S1) 10 years ago in 2004, while Dr. Wolfla practiced at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center. I was 29 at the time, and would have periods of about 3 days here and there leading up to the surgery where I wouldn't really walk. Dr. Wolfla performed the spinal fusion surgery, and I have had a complete recovery from my original condition. Dr. Wolfla made it possible for me to finish out my military career. I'll be grateful for the rest of my life.
