CED Testimonials

The patients in the Testimonials list below have had the same procedure displayed in the
video above.



I’ve never written a testimonial before but I wanted to send you one out of gratitude to Dr Schiffer. Please feel free to use it and share my contact information with anyone considering a procedure with Dr Schiffer.

I was swimming with my daughter when suddenly it felt like a jolt of electricity had gone down both arms. From then on I had a permanent  tingling and numbess in both arms and legs. The MRI showed a serious disk herniation impinging on my spine at C5-C6. and my Doctor sent me off to a Neurosurgeon who told me I needed the disk removed and the bones fused. I wasn’t so sure I wanted fusion so I asked my Doctor for another referral. The second Neurosurgeons just confirmed that I needed fusion, and should have it performed quickly to avoid possible permanent damage to the spine. I have to admit the ideas of fusion scared me so I immediately began reseaching for less invasive procedures and came across Dr Schiffer’s website .  I sent off my MRI data and Dr Schiffer called me about 2 days later. We discussed my symptoms and he told me I was possibly a candidate for a CED procedure but he wanted more tests done to confirm ( CT scan, X-Ray ).  This made me feel more comfortable, although it’s hard not to feel comfortable with Dr Schiffer after you have spoken with him.  Luckily the results showed that I could have the CED performed and I was scheduled for December 4th. 

I flew out to California and met with Dr Schiffer on the 3rd December. My wife couldn’t travel out with me so Dr Schiffer made a point of calling her while I was in his office to discuss the procedure and to answer any concerns she may have. The surgery was exactly as described on his website and I immediately felt relief from my symptoms.

I was up and about within an hour and was actually out buying a sandwich within a couple of hours of the procedure. I was given a prescription for pain killers and muscle relaxants, neither of which I needed. I flew back east the next day on my own without a problem.  When I visited my Doctor the week after the surgery he was amazed when I showed him the incision. He said he does more damage shaving. My wife was also amazed. I think she was sceptical before I flew out, but she is now as much an advocate of Dr Schiffer as I am.
It's been two months now and I have had only minor discomfort between the shoulders and upper back. My symptoms of numbness and tingling almost all disappeared. 
I cannot thank Dr Schiffer and his wonderful staff enough. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr.Schiffer to anyone. I am also amazed that CED procedures are not more commonly practiced.
