In 2005 I was rear ended by a Tractor Trailer. I experienced crushing neck and head pain. Two years of seeing neurologists and orthopedics surgeons, including the Cleveland clinic, without any idea of how to fix me. I was then referred to Dr. Jho. Dr. Jho free of charge reviewed all my test results. One of his surgeons called me with another test to have done. That test pointed out the problem. They scheduled me for an appointment on Monday and did the first surgery the next day and the second surgery 4 months later. Dr. Jho told me I should get 70-80% pain relief but did have permanent nerve damage. I got 75% pain relief and went back to work. I went to Dr. Jho to get better and I did. He is a great surgeon. He is Korean and sees America as the country of great opportunity. His manner may offend if you are looking to be offended. Go there looking to be better. If he can help you he will. If not he will tell you.
Had a T 7/8 herniated disc fixed in 2004. I never recovered, felt much worse after and developed neuritis all over my body. I should never have had the surgery. His PA warned me that a “ few patients” we suing him over bad thoracic surgeries. Get a second opinion. I wish I had to do it all over and could save myself.
While all other doctors gave us a doom and gloom diagnosis of OPLL, Dr. Jho was able to treat me in a much more conservative and less invasive way without fusion. He has twice now done surgery to restore my quality of life and I am living nearly pain free, driving, walking and doing all of the activities other surgeons said I probably would not be doing after fusion. While OPLL is a progressive condition, and I will likely need more surgery to again halt the progression, I feel assured that Dr. Jho and his team will restore me if I need to be, once again. I had several local spine surgeons tell me that if they had what I have they would be seeing doctor Jho. He is a no nonsense, get right to the point kind of guy. His team of assistants are attentive and caring as is the entire staff. I wouldn't, and don't, trust anyone else with my condition.
Go to pages further down this review site. Dr Jho had jammed intitial pages with fake reviews. He is also a fake doctor. Like someone else wrote previously, the majority of the positive reviews were written by Jho or his staff. In 2012, I went to Dr. Jho for a "simple" endoscopic procedure on L5 / S1. When I woke up, I had developed drop foot and no Achilles reflex. I was in terrible pain. For the brief follow up I had, he rationalized the pain and told me it would get better. A Medrol dose pack and some Vicodin, and I was sent home (2 hours away). I was in significant pain for several months and getting Dr. Jho to come to the phone was nearly impossible. He yelled at me and my wife on the phone on more than one occasion and indicated it was all my imagination. Avoid this practice at all costs. His medical liscense should be revoked!
