If you are having back problems you MUST see this doctor. He truly saved my life. Approximately 16 months after surgery I am doing very well. I will always have some discomfort and my back hurts sometimes from the stenosis, etc. However, the PAIN is gone and now I no longer use the word because I know what true pain is. I also know one of the Best doctors in the world. Thank you Dr. Arginteanu for giving me my life back. My only regret is I did not meet him sooner! ;)
I suffered a really bad accident in '09 when I was hit by a driver on the phone while crossing the street. I went through a lot having my back and neck badly injured and I saw various different specialists who treated me with injections, physical therapy and after over a year under heavy-duty medication decided surgery was my best shot. I was then sent to a surgeon that was shameless to ask me if I was single & when I said I was engaged then stated: "let's see if you'll think the way by the end of your treatment". I was then so upset & disappointed from doctors that when I first met Dr Arginteanu I was very pleased to find there's still hope. After patiently listening to me and answering questions we agreed on surgery & he has been not only a great professional but a really caring and respectful. I cannot say enough good things about him because my life improved enormously after my cervical surgery and I feel so much capable & strong now & recovery was faster than expected. Great doc!
I was extremely lucky to have Dr A do my emergency laminectomy in 2002 as my Dr was on vacation at the time and Dr A was the doctor on call. I had a dropped foot from severe lower back problems. I would get crippled from the pain at least twice a year. After my surgery I had no pain at all. It is almost ten years later now and my back feels as though I never had any problems at all. I thank God that he was the doctor on call back then. I have 3 friends who had basically the same surgery (with other doctors)as I had and they all have residual problems and pain. Thank you Dr A!
i had multiple levels of fusion in my lumbar area. my lumbar area was reconstructed and this was done in 2003. I have a wonderful quality of life which is pain free and I can play golf at the level that i have maintained for many years. i am fortunate to have such a skilled dr. to take such good care of me.
