Hello everyone,

We are looking for a recomended nuerosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon in california. preferably central cal. but we are willing to go anywhere. we were even considering a place in texas!
we are dealing with a l5-s1 injury and are begining to seriously look for help. its a workers comp. case, so its been in the works for over a year, but it is getting worse and worse since de-tox from med meds and we are begininng to become better self advocates.
any suggestions for any surgeons would be apreciated. we are in the market and understand we need to do the research for good help.
thank you!

~April and Jason

    If I were to try this again I would think about one of the University hospitals like XXX or XXX.

  • April and Jason, you will not be able to get any referrals publicly on this forum as it's against forum rules.

    If anyone has referrals for them, please send via PM.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

  • I didn't realize that mentioning the name of a teaching hospital was a referral. I in no way was recommending one of these institutions. My point was that a teaching hospital may be better as to finding new techniques to help them. Sorry to have made the mistake.
