    Dr. Patel is a fantastic surgeon. I was incredibly nervous and unsure if I wanted to pursue back surgery, because I had only heard horror stories of surgeries gone wrong. Dr. Patel never pressured me to get surgery, and he provided me with lots of information about success rates and the results from both his and his peers past surgeries.

    Before the surgery, I was losing function in my right leg, with associated weakness, pain, and drop foot. IMMEDIATELY after the surgery, my strength had been restored and my sciatica was gone.

    I'm currently four months out from the surgery, and my life is back to normal. I can chase my kids around, lift them on my shoulders, and carry them when they get hurt.

    I couldn't have done this without Dr. Patel, his expertise, and his professional demeanor and recommendations. I'd recommend him to anyone for any spine surgery after my experiences.
