In 2005, I had a cervical disk issue causing excruciating pain in my neck and arm. My chiropractor recommended I see Dr. David Raskas. It was a great recommendation. After exhausting non-surgical options, Dr. Raskas performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at C6/C7. The surgery was an unqualified success. I woke up pain-free and was able to resume normal activities within a few weeks. I have had little to no complications since. So, ten years later, when I was experiencing crushing sciatic nerve pain due to a herniated disc in my lower back I didn’t hesitate to contact Dr. Raskas. After studying M-R-I results he advised me to have a microdiscectomy at L5/S1. Again, the surgery stopped the pain and gave me my mobility back. It’s been almost four months since the operation and I am back to working out on a regular basis.
