What Patients are Saying About Dr. Jack Zigler, MD

I was showered in care at the hospital. I had to look at my incision just to make sure I really had surgery, because I was never in pain. My first surgery [performed by Dr. Jack Zigler] provided relief for so long that I was actually relieved when I was diagnosed to have it a second time around. I knew surgery would work and be worth it. You don’t have to live in pain. Many people have back pain, but that’s no reason to ignore yours. There is a finish line, and that line is where your life goes from ‘pause’ back to ‘play.
