Dr. Patel and the staff at Ortho Atlanta sent me for a MRI immediately and found my spinal cord crushed. No hesitation about surgery on my spine to correct the problem. I was up walking the day after surgery with very little pain. I cannot praise Dr. Patel enough, thank you for helping me. you are absolutely the best.
