Before my surgery I was in pain management taking 3-5 different medications every day and that still did not help my pain. I had several back surgeries in the past with no relief as well. Dr. Katz was a blessing to me. After he did a surgery on my lower back, I am pain free and not on any pain medications. His knowledge, care, and skills have been life saving to me.
I went to see Dr. Katz because I was having severe pain in my lower back and both legs that prevented me from doing normal things, like going out to eat, fishing, and enjoying life. After doing therapy, taking medications, and trying injections, I was ready to have surgery. Dr. Katz did a laminectomy on me, 1 week after the surgery I was pain free and felt like I could have a normal life again. I am now 6 months since surgery and pain free, living life.
The staff is absolutely amazing. They were sincerely concerned about my needs and using the right approach for me to get better.
I have been seeing Dr. Katz for a long time for back and neck problems. He recently performed a lumbar fusion on L5 S1 and it has given me back a part of my life I didn't think I would ever have. The whole staff is warm and welcoming. Everyone treats you as a person and not just another patient
The best ever Dr. Katz is a gift from God and the WHOLE ENTIRE STAFF this man did my surgery a few years ago on a Thursday I was dischared on a Friday and didn't take not one pain killer at all!!!! A major surgery and each time he treated me for something I never go back for the same thing!!!!
