I have been to three different spine specialists. I have an L-4 through S-1 fusion with rods and screws and bone grafts. I had terrible leg pain and was at the point of giving up hope for anything better. Dr. Armaghani found solutions without narcotics to relieve most of my pain. Then, I fractured L-1, and he tried a very simple surgery cementing the bone together using a balloon to keep the disc in place. I was back to 100% in less than a week. He has the kindest, most attentive staff!
