Jan 23, 2024
Dr Schwab Is Amazing! I was up and back to work, lifting heavy, playing 10 games of softball a week within a few months. To this day even with outdated hardware my lower back pain is minimal at the surgery site and only had a few degenerative changes. This Man is caring and empathetic and listened to all of my concerns. Thanks again Doc
