19 years post-surgery and doing great!

Dr. Uselman did my L5-S1 back surgery in 1994 in Pittsburgh, PA. 19 years and two children later, I'm still extremely happy with the outcome and have very few limitations. With a more recent and different back injury, knowing that he had relocated to Ohio, I tracked him down to ask for a referral in my area.

Dr Uselman gave me my life back. I could barely get out of bed before my surgery. Explained in detail about my surgery and answered all my questions. Was caring and compassionate and made me feel at ease. If I ever had to have this type of surgery in the future, Dr Uselman is the only doctor I would allow to perform the surgery. He is simply the Best!!
