About me, Im a 54 year young overweight female. Before visiting Dr. Wallach, I tried many things to fix my back issues. Chiropractic, acupuncture, lumbar injections, physical therapy, physical therapy with dry needling and, of course, pain meds & muscle relaxers. I let this go on for a number of years. Finally over the last year before I first visited Dr. Wallach, I had started losing feeling down my left leg. The pain, tingling and numbness was so bad I couldn't get thru store without a cart to lean on or finding a place to sit down every 10 to 15 minutes.
I visited Dr. Wallach with the hope that he would have another solution for me other than surgery. I had been told he was the most conservative back surgeon in the area. I heard him speaking with other patients (lets face it, voices carry but I didn't know/didn't want to know names) and with each of the three before mehis responses were to try other options before he would do surgery. I was VERY excited that he would tell me the same thing. He came in to meet me and he is a SUPER nice person so I was somewhat relaxed as we talked. After a while of talking, he had me go have X-rays (right there in the office!), then he read them. I was the unlucky but LUCKY fourth. He said I needed to have surgery, I admit I cried. But I believed him; I made the surgery appointment that day and had the surgery less than two weeks later. Lets face it; it is scary to think someone will be cutting into your back.
Now, 7 months laterI LOVE Dr. Wallach and all of his staff. I can shop, clean my house, cook and do most anything I would like as long as I dont overdo it. Do I still have some pain, yes? Did Dr. Wallach sugar coat it, no? Am I still going to PT, yes but only once every two weeks? Am I a VERY happy camper that I found Dr. Wallach and followed his advice, YES!!!!

Dr. Wallach performed back surgery on me on 6/12/2012, and the surgery completely fixed my lower back problem. He removed the disk between L4 and L5 and fused those two vertebrae. I had previously had 3 epidural steroid injections and 2 facet blocks done with another doctor and those had not provided any relief. I interviewed 3 spine specialists about surgery. All described the same surgical procedure, but Dr. Wallach had a much better sense of the issue causing the pain, and a better ??bedside manner.? The surgery and post-op all went extremely well and I am very happy with the results. His P.A. is great also.
