My experience at Florida Orthopaedic Institute was nothing short of amazing. When I first walked into the ER I could hardly stand and they recommended I see Florida Orthopaedic Institute. I made an appointment and was seen by Dr. Weinstein. That day changed my life forever. He ordered an MRI which showed I had problems in my L5-S1 area. I tried injections, my disk blew out lodging fragments in my nerves. Dr. Weinstein ordered surgery, tried to repair the disk area and clean out the fragments and two weeks later another piece broke off. I dealt with the worst pain of my life for another year. The whole time Dr. Weinstein was there. Helping to control my pain which I know I was a pain in his rear, but he never quit. Had my L5-S1 fusion and woke up from surgery with the greatest spine surgeon ever at the foot of my bed. It was like he flipped a light switch. I was cured from the moment I woke up I know it. To this day some two years later I’ve never had a problem with my lower back. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Weinstein and his team. They saved my life. I’ll recommend FOI and Dr Weinstein to anyone. They are the greatest ever!
