Mark Price, back at what he loves to do after ACD surgery peformed
by Dr. Schiffer. The patients in the Testimonials list below
have had the same procedure as Mark Price pictured in the photo above.
To all prospective patients of Dr. Schiffer:
In 1999, I was injured while carrying a large beam on the job site.
After almost a year waiting for approval from the Workman' Compensation
Carrier I was granted approval for surgery. Dr. Schiffer did cervical
endoscopic discectomy on three levels of my neck. Because of such
a lengthy period of inactivity extensive therapy was required. I
returned to work at my normal occupation as a sheet metal worker,
which often requires heavy lifting, and things were going great.
The surgery was a great success.
Unfortunately, after working approximately eight months I had a
terrible bout with kidney stones, and after four hours of intense
pain and total body contractions, my wife took me to the hospital.
There was a re-injury of the same three levels, which required additional
surgery. May of 2002, Dr. Schiffer performed open surgery on those
discs. After a 7 plus hour surgery I feel that it was as successful
as it could possibly be. Although a career change is in order for
me, I believe Dr. Schiffer saved the articulation of my neck. Because
I believe that fusion of the vertebrae is the last alternative,
I praise Dr. Schiffer for sparing me from the procedure.
I wholeheartedly encourage anyone in a similar situation to not
hesitate in having Dr. Schiffer perform your surgery. Dr. Schiffer
is one hell of a surgeon. Although I did not purposely wait to write
this testimonial, the lapsed time between this testimonial and my
surgery, it has only serve to strengthen my esteem of Dr. Schiffer
and his entire staff. Thank you Dr. Schiffer and all involved.
Michael E. McCaghren and family
