In @1990 I saw Doctor Fragatos after undergoing 3 prior laminectomy surgeries at L5-S1. I was scheduled for a 4th surgery at the University of Michigan. Doctor Fragatos proposed trying a new procedure that was developed in Montreal wherein they do a spinal block but add to it spinal fluid. This was to dissolve scar tissue. I went three consecutive weeks and had these injections. When I started I was in incredible pain. After the procedure I was able to walk upright and pain free. I canceled my surgery and was pain free for 16 years. Due to a vertebrae slipping out of position and bone spurs on the face of the vertebrae I did have to have surgery in 2007. My legs were going numb. I am very grateful to Dr Fragatos for his diagnosis and helping me to avoid surgery at that time. Also for the 16 years I was pain free. I first saw Dr Fragatos in 1985 after falling 3 stories from scaffolding. He performed my first three surgeries also. After the first I was in a car accident and was thrown from the vehicle. Causing further damage to my back. However, even then Dr Fragatos tried every other method to relieve my pain before attempting surgery. i.e. traction, therapy, medication. Even my hospital stays were bearable due to his caring and compassion.
