Dr. Schmitt recently performed surgery on my 79 yr old mother with a C2 fracture. He did an excellent job repairing the odontoid fracture with placement of a large titanium screw through the front of her neck. She is completely ambulatory, no deficits, and feeling good. Her fall was only one month ago! Dr. Schmitt is fantastic!
Dr Schmitt performed a discectomy/laminectomy for radicular pain from a herniated disc. The surgery made my pain much worse and has destroyed my life. Dr. Schmitt abandoned me when things started going bad. He now works in Houston and I would avoid him like the plague. I'd give up my life savings to be able to go back in time and choose another doctor (it is already costing me a fortune). Once the surgery is over and your spinal nerves are permanently damaged, there's nothing you can do about it for the rest of your life.
Dr. Schmitt is affiliated (can practice and admit patients) with the following hospital(s).
