Dr. Joseph was the only surgeon I would allow to operate on me as his expertise and years of both simple and complex surgery allowed me to be back to work and my normal routine, pain-free within 4 weeks.
In Feb 2016, I was referred by my GP to Dr. Joseph after an MRI due to severe lower back pain with leg weakness. Dr. Joseph helped me understand the need for discectomy and laminectomy to relieve the long term issues I was experiencing. From the moment I was admitted to hospital, I was treated with compassion and care. Dr. Joseph’s surgical team was with me the whole way. They answered my questions and were there for me after the surgery to make sure I was recovering well.
Dr. Joseph was the only surgeon I would allow to operate on me as his expertise and years of both simple and complex surgery allowed me to be back to work and my normal routine, pain free within 4 weeks. The results achieved were nothing short of incredible and I couldn’t have been happier. Little did I know I would need his services again a mere 8 weeks later when we were in a rear end accident.
After a second MRI to see what damage was done, Dr. Joseph and I were disappointed to see there was another herniation. He took the time to explain to me that I would need to have L4-L5 fused to stabilize my back. He even had to interrupt his personal time off to do the revision surgery for me! I was extremely upset and disappointed to face another surgery, but his staff picked up my spirits with hugs and smiles. I walked out of the office feeling good, knowing I was going to be taken care of so I could concentrate on healing.
I found both experiences with Dr. Joseph and his team to be excellent and I appreciated the comfort provided knowing they are all knowledgeable, caring and extremely efficient. His surgical services and professionalism are superior. I would recommend Dr. Joseph and his team for anyone contemplating back surgery as you will have the most comprehensive, caring team taking care of you from start to finish.
Have it done right the first time so you can get back to enjoying life!
