In 2009 I made the mistake of allowing Dr Spindler do surgery on my knee because of severe pain I was having. I have Spina Bifida and never did think anything could be done about the pain. Turns out I was right and to me it was like he only did surgery on me for the money. He told me I had the worst knees he had ever seen, and when he said that I should have been smart enough to leave without him talking me in to surgery. But I wanted to continue walking so much and he swore up and down to me that he could fix me and I would be walking just like I always had. I never walked another step after he got done with me and was only left with being mad that he did surgery for the money he would get and I was left in a wheelchair. He should have been honest with me and told me there was nothing he could do, but he did it for the money and I was in no better shape after surgery than I was when I went in there to see him the first time. I did not ever believe surgery would do any good, but wanted to be able to walk like I always had, so I got suckered into believing him. He simply should not have done this to me or to anybody else.
It has been 20 years since I saw Dr. Spindler , he did an all reconstruction for me . I was a 36 years old mother of 4 and scared to death .. He was awesome , compassionate and spot on with his care . Not and easy thing for me to do but he made me feel like I could do anything . 6 months of pt was rough but it was worth it in the long run .
A couple of years ago I started having trouble walking and I was born with Spina Bifida. I had always heard that after 40 yrs old people with my handicap stopped walking, so it scared me. After seeing Dr Spindler I was told that I might be wrong in all the things I had always heard and that I should try surgery. Years later I still am having more trouble walking than I ever have and the pain has never gone away. Surgery did me absolutely no good and I do not believe that Dr Spindler knew what he was talking about at all. I don't believe he had ever seen a patient with a handicap, and I don't think he had any business telling me I would be fine after surgery. He should have been honest with me and told me he had never seen a handicap patient and he should have referred me to a different dr, but instead he let my parents spend all that money and it was a big waste. (I didn't have the money myself). Losing my ability to walk was one of the most devastating things that has ever happened to me, but right along with that, Dr Spindler should have NEVER gotten my hopes up just to have those hopes shot down again. I hope I never see him again.
