Dr. Schwartz performed two operations on my spine, one for cervical stenosis and one for lumbar stenosis. Both operations were hugely successful. I had been unable to walk very far, and suffered from severe loss of feeling in my legs after even a short walk. I very much appreciated Dr. Schwartz's care and attention to all the details in explaining to me what he intended to do. I now walk even long distances with no symptoms whatsoever. I am very proud of my decision to ask him to do the surgery on my spine.
