Testimonials from Dr. Schiffer's Spinal Surgery PatientsRead testimonials of the patients that underwent back or neck surgery performed by Dr. Schiffer.

Claudia: I feel that it was a blessing that I was able to find you to do the surgery and I am so happy that I chose the CED procedure instead of a fusion... This fall, my husband, Bob, and I took our Harleys and we rode all the way to Branson, Missouri and back! All total was 5,500 miles!

Richard:I was eventually diagnosed as having a herniated disc which was confirmed as a left L4-5 bulge on an MRI exam... Now, I seldom think about my back, I am pain free, all lower extremity symptoms have resolved, and I am able to participate in all physical activities without discomfort just as I did before the herniated discs occurred. 

Phil: It’s been almost 1 year
since my CED procedure and I
am very pleased with the results. Improvement was evident immediately post op, allowing me to spend the entire next day sightseeing with my wife. Avoiding the use of narcotic pain meds was a huge plus since I do not tolerate their side effects. I still cannot believe that this much simpler procedure saved me from the more invasive level 2 cervical fusion that appeared to be my only option before learning of your CED procedure.

The excellence in quality can be assuaged from the fact that eliminator Cues have come to the Major League baseball MLB. The cues can be purchases either online or picked up from the Boston tables store. They usually come along with a beautiful bag, in line with the high quality standards of the Boston table pool cue. The pool cue pack definitely stands out from the crowd. Perhaps the most famous quote commonly attributed to Lombardi wasn't even his own. Legendary actor John Wayne uttered the phrase "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing!" in a 1953 film called Trouble Along the Way. Lombardi may have borrowed that phrase, but many of his other memorable quotes are believed to be his alone. Having a capable starter under center in the NFL is a huge advantage. Starting cheap nhl jerseys quarterbacks, defined here as No. 1 on the depth chart, have completed 63 percent of their passes on average over the last three seasons, producing 6.4 adjusted net yards per pass attempt over that span.

He feeling good, though, and that a good sign for New England. And a bad one for opponents, who have to wonder if he ever slow down. Elliott could file a federal lawsuit seeking an injunction, which if granted would put a hold on the suspension while the appeal is being determined. Another possibility would be letting the appeal play out, and if the suspension is upheld, filing a lawsuit to challenge the ruling.

But the Brady suspension was handed down in May, and not in the middle of the preseason, so there was wiggle room for the Patriots quarterback.

I loved that guy's commentary, it would just get me so pumped up, especially when I would break off a long run and he'd yell "he's got get away cheap mlb jerseys from the cops speed!" This year they added Jim Nantz and Phil Sims, two solid football announcers but they offer nothing memorable to their commentary. They also get repetitive rather quickly, but I tend to tune them out while I'm playing so it's really not a big deal to me. One new feature that I really liked is that they included some of the real voices of the quarterbacks when they're doing their snap count, such as Aaron Rodgers when he yells out "green 18". I hope they expand on this in next year's game and include more quarterback voices because it was really a neat touch. As such, it could be considered domestic violence and open to newer, harsher penalties created last month by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.Petersons scandal hit Cheap Jordan Retro the worlds richest sports league the same week the league saw an uproar over star rusher Ray Rice, who was fired by the Baltimore Ravens and banned indefinitely by the NFL after a video was released showing him brutally punching the woman who is now his wife in a hotel elevator.Phil Grant, an assistant district attorney for Montgomery County in Texas where Peterson was charged, said a trial was not likely until next year."Mr. There shouldn't be any excuses for the Bills in this one.
