I had lumbar disc surgery for severe lower back pain and right leg pain with severe, progressive right leg weakness. Pain went away the same day of surgery. Weakness in the right leg is back to normal now. I went from a wheelchair to a walker and now I am off the walker and started to drive my car. I had the best experience and best results with Dr. Ozgur and his staff.
I recommend him highly!
