I had Dr. Stephen Courtney in Plano Texas. Fellowship trained, head of his department and has awards in bio-mechanics and bio-engineering. This tells me the person is very knowledable about how and why the spine works and how to make it work the best way possible.
We all had different doctors and different outcomes. I don't think we are supposed to make recommendations, just share our experiences (the mod had to correct me one time-I oopsed).
My experience with the doctors at University of Kansas Medical Center has been good.They have taken care of me since I moved and was diagnosed with some scar tissue against my sciatic nerve. It can happen to anyone as I understand-I had previous surgeries with no scaring issues on other places in my body.
I like doctors who are current ith new technologies and go to annual symposiums and meetings to learn about all this new stuff I hope can help us in the long run.
Be Blessed and keep your faith!
