Had surgery 5 years ago with NYC surgeon who ignored my severe back pain which developed months after surgery. I felt alone and unsure. Saw Dr. Checo for a 2nd opinion and he actually listened to my complains and was able to figure out why I was having such bad back pain. I never healed it and had what is called an non union. I'm having a redo surgery next week but I already feel good knowing I actually had a problem that could be fixed. Thank you
