.

i went to 2 other neurosurgeons including one that did my last 3 spine fusions. both of these surgeons upon review of my mri told me at my age of 59 that i have to live with being bedridden. and live the rest of my life in pain. i told them they just gave me a death sentence because i have had 3 blood clots.......while waititing to get operated on by dr schlifka.....i was rushed to the emergency room with a pulmonary embulism and a pulmonary infarction...luckily im here to type about it....however the operation has been postponed until the clots subside. the other 2 surgeons were worried about their success ratio!!! they said if i had one or 2 problems maybe they would operate...but not 9 or 10. plus dr victor nakkache who had done 3 fusions in the past on me, said my fusion site was intact...he lied.....i saw it with my own eyes on both an xray and cat scan. ive had over 100 operations and procedures in my life and not new to this. the other surgeon was dr weiss in allentown...orthopedic associates.....he shook my hand and said good luck with the rest of your life.........i left him with tears in my eyes....no hope,,no referral,no nothing!! dont bother even making an appt. dr schlifka was very very patient.....i had a ladder slip out from me 6 yrs ago and fell face first to macadem...sustaining brain trauma and multiple fractures all over my body. with the head injury its tough getting my point across, but dr schlifka was a very understanding and compassionate man. whatever he eventually will do for me is better than nothing and i will accept the outcome. he has seen more extreme cases than his peers that r 20 yrs older than him....im glad i met him and u will be too!
