My wife was scheduled for this Friday to have surgery from Dr. Walt. We found out he changed the date on her without contacting her. She can barely walk and she is in excruciating pain. Waiting 2 more weeks is almost unbearable. Plus she has Obsessive-compulsive disorder and PTSD which she started to have immediately after surgery from Dr. Walt over a year ago and being left in the care of his sadistic nurse named Donna. So having my wife wait another few weeks is unconscionable. I do not recommend him to say the least.
I had a complex L5 S1 anterior posterior fusion. It was a tough recovery. This was 6 yrs ago. I am still pain free and was back to construction work 3 months later. He is an awesome Dr who takes time to answer all your questions in a way that you understand. He does not have the typical surgeon arrogance. He calm and makes you feel comfortable. I was told by another Dr that he would do my surgery but In his opinion I would never work in construction again. Well Dr Galicich fixed me up excellent.
Dr. Galicich operated on my husbands spine in 2003. He was 70 years old at the time, and although he was no stranger to major surgery, he had never had sugery to his back. Having farmed and work many years as a miner he lived with back pain since he was quite young. nearing 70 the pain started radiating and was beginning to limit his activity. It was a tough recovery but the end result has been great. Again today I gave his name and contact information to someone I know that lives with constant pain and has been unable to find help.
