I had severe back and leg pain for months. I did everything that I could do not to have surgery, physical therapy, and medication. I had back surgery in January 08 and my leg and back pain was completely eliminated. I had my quality of life back. I wish I didn't wait so long to have the procedure. I was back to work in 5 days it was just amazing. Dr. Varnavas was a great surgeon and had the best bed side manor. He is just a regular kind of guy that enjoys helping people! I have several other friends who have had the same great outcome as me with Dr. Varnavas being their surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone!
