In 2008 Dr James Harrop and Associates performed surgery on my neck, which had extensive damage from a fall off a roof. C4/C5 were floating in my neck and all ligaments/tendons were tore in the back of my neck and on top of the damage I had a dental infection in my neck from a cracked jaw bone. The surgery was a success and I am alive today to talk about it. I wish I would have commented back in 2008 when he did the surgery. Dr Harrop and his staff, as well as the entire staff of Jefferson Hospital are true Professionals and some of the greatest people I know. Thank you to all and you are all a blessing to me and my family!
I recommend highly.
