No sciatic nerve pain the moment I got out of surgery

Took all my nerve pain away with a perfect laminectomy. I had previous surgery 12 years ago

Three Stars

Dr. Aultschuler. Is a very fine surgeon. Jefferson Hospital is very fortunate to have him on staff. Performed a very seriou 4.5 hour operation on my wife's neck where the arthritic discs was growing into the spinal chord. She is fine now thanks to him. I highly recommend him!

dr. altschuler did my laminectomy on my L5, S1 over 12 years ago. Prior to this i had never even so much is had 1 stitch. dr. altschuler made me feel absolutely comfortable through out everything. I knew immediately when i woke up from surgery i was fixed. all though i had permanent nerve damage as a result of me waiting so long to have the surgery. i now must have another surgery as a result of another injury or at least i think so. dr. altschuler was with out a doubt the first person i will be calling for my back.
