He gave me my life again!

I had 3 brainstem craniotomies done in the 1980's for severe disequilibrium. I crawled on the floor and took a shower sitting in the tub. I had to hold on to furniture and feel walls to stabilize me. Dr.Jannetta operated on my 8th nerve and truly saved my life because I could not live with that awful dizziness. I recommend him very, very highly. I am so thankful to have found this wonderful surgeon.
