A friend just used Dr. Hill and was pleased with the result of her surgery which was non-invasive for spinal stenosis.

My husband just his 4th back surgery. Dr. Daniel Hoh at univ of Florida did this surgery, it was quite invasive ask he had to remove old pins and put in new ones. He had this same surgery by another Dr. 8 years ago and he was never out of pain. It has been 4 weeks since this surgery and he is doing amazing, not much pain and he now has a zip in his step. He is a neurosurgeon and just does backs etc. if you would like more info pm me with your phone number and I will call you.

Surgery, by definition, IS invasive. Do you mean minimally invasive?

I had back surgery this past July for herniated disc. I could hardly walk, or stand up for any length of time. Dr. Antonio DiSclafani with Ocala Nuerological Center did mine. I was very pleased, and had wonderful care. Now I can walk, stand, bend, everything.

That's what the doctor called it. non-invasive. They do make a cut but maneuver around muscles instead of cutting through them. Less recovery time according to my doctor.

I'm happy it worked for you.
