Ratings for Dr. Scott A. Meyer
I was having severe pain and intermittent numbness in my left leg r/t a herniated disk. Microdiscectomy was done on 8/6, pain and numbness resolved by 8/8, surgical discomfort lasted maybe a week. Recovery period has been uneventful. Able to perform all day to day activities at previous level, looking forward to resuming exercise schedule.
I wound up in Morristown trauma unit after a bicycle accident where I wound up on my back in some bushes with tingling in both lower arms and hands. Eventually Dr Meyer came to explain the problem with arthritic narrowing of the channel for the spinal cord and bruising that was causing the tingling sensation. He described the alternative to surgery and the benefit and risk of the surgery. I decided to have the surgery and left the hospital the day after it was done. Recovery has been no problem and I’m looking forward to doing the physical therapy and getting back to normal activities again.
Dr. Meyer’s is an amazing surgeon. He is knowledgeable and confident in deciding the procedure necessary for pain relief. He provided me with all the information needed to make a decision to move forward with the surgery. Dr. Meyer is personable and cares about your pain. I had absolutely trust in him. Dr. Meyer’s staff, nurses and nurse practitioners were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Meyer.
Didn’t get a lot of follow up care after a big operation on back. Nurse did all the follow up. Always had a lot of pain and had to go to another doctor. Eventually was told spine never heard and had further surgery by another surgeon and am finally doing well
After surgery I needed pain Meds for only 3 days. My pain didn't kick in till 72 hrs after. By the 3rd week I was walking 2 miles a day with no discomfort..Feeling like I'm improving a bit everyday ! I don't believe I could imagine a speedier recovery...
