Crippled Me

Dr. Siaz performed a 4 disc fusion on me. He hit a nerve and now I have drop foot, nerve damage in my left leg, numb toes. Will never run again, can hardly walk-need a brace. Constant pain. Basically ruined my physical life having fun. Went into surgery walking came out in a wheelchair for 2 months. Had to learn how to walk. Did not have anything to do with me afterwards. Maybe for most people he has done good for them-not me. Should have gotten a second opinion, but I was pretty new to Las Cruces and he was recommended to me very highly. Do not be afraid to get second opinions. Good luck to all.

Predjudgice against WC cases

First of all, I want to clarify that I was a WC case. Because of this I believe that the Dr thought that I was someone seeking drugs. Even though I have no history of Drug Abuse, ever. Also he failed to read the Physical Therapist report. Nor did he ever order steroid injections or any other pain midiagation. He failed to order an important test, discogram, when the Dr whom I went to for second opinion did. I ended up needing and having surgery. Might to different for Patients whom or not WC
