Dr. Weinstein was honest with me and didn’t promise an improvement because my spine was partially fused in that position, but said he’d do his very best. He also discovered that the head of one of the screws had fallen off (it was of a type he does not recommend). I trusted him and he performed a miracle. I will never be 100%, but after a few months of recovery, I have greatly reduced the pain medication, I’m resuming some of my hobbies and I’m loving life again. Dr. Weinstein truly gave me back my hope and my life. Trust him!
