smooth sailing

Dr. Citow was highly recommended to me and I totally understand why. He is very easy to communicate with in person and through staff. No question or concern went unanswered. My surgery was exactly as was described it would be. There were no surprises, just smooth sailing. He makes you feel comfortable and positive about your recovery and so it has been for me.

Cervical Disctectomy and Fusion Procedure

I was suffering from herniated disc problems in the last 10 years. All my pain and symptoms were vanished immediately after surgery. Dr. Citow clearly explained to me about my disease with my cervical disc, need for the surgery and the consequences if I do not do it. Those details really helped me to get rid of my fear of surgery. Overall it was a great experience with Dr.Citow and I thank him for the precise diagnosis at the right time.

Lumbar surgery

Lumbar area feels great. Can sit, stand, turn over in bed etc. Significantly improved! Only problem is walking. Seems as though the sacrum has problems. Dr. Citow has me in physical therapy now and for the next four weeks. Still have a lot of pain walking ,but not when doing anything else. Hope the walking pain goes away. Limited to about a city block at best.
