How likely are you to recommend Dr. Saldua?
I"ve had neck problems for 20 years now. After developing numbness and trouble with fine movements in my hand, my Dr sent me for an MRI that showed multiple levels of discs and vertebrae in poor condition.I did not want to talk to anyone who was going to push surgery, I just wanted an honest consultation without pressure on which way I should go. Dr. Saldua was exactly the right person. He looked at my MRI and discussed what types of spine surgery could be used and said my situation would need a fusion at 3 levels. He told me its a very intense surgery that is very hard on the patient and has a long recovery. On top of that he explained that at my age a fusion should not be considered except as an absolute last resort because the fusion will cause problems in other places on the spine and would require additional surgeries in the future and each surgery would reduce how much I can move my spine. I was referred to physical therapy and am thankful that I saw Dr. Saldua.
