Dr. Holly performed a laminectomy, placed rods and screws in my L4-L5 and a bone fusion (no extra surgery to get bone! Dr. Holly did a fantastic job - I was up walking within 24 hours of my minimally invasive surgery...no pain! That was in 2005 and to this day...I still have Dr. Holly to thank for giving my life back to me! Dr. Holly is a terrific surgeon!
I saw 3 surgeons before finding Dr. Holly. None of them wanted to operate on me, due to the complicated surgery required, but did not say that, just scared me to death by telling me what they might do. Dr. Holly inspired hope and confidence right away. I had a schwannoma - a benign tumor composed of nerve cells - that had grown inside my 5th lumbar vertebrae and eroded that bone from the inside, leaving me at high risk for a fracture/collapse. Dr. Holly and an associate performed a 10-hour surgery, first posterior then anterior approach, to remove the vertebra and tumor, then re-engineer my spine with a "spacer" to replace the vertebra and rods/screws to stabilize with 2-level fusion L4-S1. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Holly! There are never any guarantees with these complex cases, but Dr. Holly is an excellent surgeon and up to the task. I have also found him to be very caring and compassionate, and his assistant Carrie has always been truly great in the customer service department. I appreciate and have highest respect for them both. I live in Nevada so must travel to UCLA Santa Monica to see Dr. Holly but for me it has been so "worth it."
I was suffering from sciatic pain due to lower back issues. I had several other neurosurgeons tell me that I needed to have major,surgery with at least a,Year recovery and significant risk. Due to my high level,of activity Dr. Holly suggested with attempt a much less invasive outpatient procedure. That was music to my ears. I had the procedure and I am 80% better. Dr Holly assured me that I will continue to improve as my nerves continue to reginerate. I was very happy with my decision!
