Mark Price, back at what he loves to do after ACD surgery peformed
by Dr. Schiffer. The patients in the Testimonials list below
have had the same procedure as Mark Price pictured in the photo above.
Dear Dr. Schiffer:
On November 27, 2001 you performed a two level anterior cervical
discectomy on C4-5 and C6-7 at the Blackhawk Surgery Center in Danville,
California. This procedure has allowed me to be pain free with no
loss of mobility whatsoever. For the past several years I was in
pain 24/7 until I was referred to you by a friend in Lake Tahoe
who also had spine surgery performed by you. Your website www.drschiffer.com
was given to me for a great reference to a outstanding surgeon who
is at the cutting edge of technology and who really "cares"
about his patients well being. Immediately I filled out the questionnaire
on your website to see what kind of response I would get. To my
surprise, within 24 hours you called to inform me that I was a excellent
candidate for this procedure. That process was my first step to
a pain free life, "thanks to you."
After experiencing a fall in a parking lot and two car accidents
that caused severe whip lash, my symptoms included headaches, facial
numbness and tingling, arm & hand numbness & tingling and severe
pain and stiffness to the back of the neck which was short term
with high maintenance. After suffering with neck pain for years
it was time to search for an alternative solution that would allow
me to be pain free and would not require a hospital stay or have
a lengthy recovery.
I have to say that "I did my homework" before selecting
you and your team at the Blackhawk Surgery Center. I am very proud
of myself for selecting you as my surgeon. Not only are you a well-trained
neurosurgeon but you also provide your patients with the newest
techniques for minimally invasive spine surgery that is not offered
in most towns. The staff in your office are always professional
and are eager to help when needed. Everyone involved at Blackhawk
including the nurses and anesthesiologist are compassionate and
Immediately after waking up from neck surgery I was PAIN FREE.
It was unbelievable. It is 13 months later and I am still plain
free and have full mobility in my neck.
I am a fortunate woman to have had the opportunity of being able
to take advantage of great medicine. We live in a world that is
constantly developing new techniques and procedures for all to benefit
from. Since this experience was such a success for me, I hope that
anyone who is suffering from chronic neck pain gets the chance to
have surgery by you, Dr. Schiffer. It certainly would change their
life, mine has.
