    I wonder if you could find out what his infection rate is. One of my docs had a zero infection rate - woo hoo. But some orthopods are ghastly - like 10% or worse.

    I don't know, I have googled him and he is reputable and well known and practices at the best hospitals, so I'd say he got his reputation from happy customers

    Pugger, looks like you've done your homework, and tossed this decision round for a long time.

    I'm not going to say 'hope this works.' I'd rather believe it will work for you Pugger. All the best with it.

    I really hope it works for you, my uncle was zapped and was thrown off one of those huge electricty towers he was working on decades ago, his back was stuffed he had surgery but it didnt work.

    That may have been the procedures of the day though, This day and age surgery should be better and more of a sucess.

    I saw somthing on telly a while ago about a chinese martial arts guy who is also a trditional chinese medicine docter fixng peoples pain in there backs, he fixed them by extreme palpatation using a wooded rod, wack wack wack on the lower back area, for around a half hour session once a week.
    most were able to get a new lease on life, I think it rearanged or stimulated new nerve growth.

    I think it was on that crappy ACA show.

    I saw the whack whack with sticks guy. He can fix muscle related problems but not bone / spinal cord ones.
