I too had severe life changing results from surgery with Dr. Michael Scharf. On June 12, 2008, he operated on my back and severely damaged the nerves that control my right foot and ankle. Now I not only have drop foot, but a weakened ankle and SEVERE nerve damage affecting my right foot. I see a pain mgmt. doctor, take narcotic pain killers, and have a neuro-spine stimulator implant that uses electricity to help control pain. I am on a walker, a high dosage of Lyrica and now have seizures as a result of the amount of hydrocorotsone he gave me post operative to help with the horrible pain. I had a grand mal seizure at home and woke up 18 hours later in the hospital. This was two months post op. My life is ruined, we can't travel, keep our grandchildren and I can't even drive now.. He should be taken out and horse whipped. Anne

This doctor is bad news!!! About 7 years ago, he was performing a vertebrae fusion on my mom. During the procedure, he "accidentaly" severed the nerves that control urinary and bowel functions. So ever since he operated on her she has had to use a catheter to urinate and take copious amounts of colon cleanser to have a bowel movement.She is unable to have said movement for at least 4-5 days, leaving her feeling miserable! My mom has stayed positive, even though this is life changing. She attempted to seek damages but no lawyer would take her case due to "conflict of interest". Which means JOI has alot of them on the bankroll. No wonder they pay millions for medical malpractice insurance. When all of her efforts were exhausted,she asked Scharf if he would pay for her catheters($1 everytime she urinates)since he admitted fault. Instead of being sympathetic, he turned her away and told her not to come back! Not only was he unapologtetic, he also made her the enemy. THINK TWICE!!

My mother went in for what she was told was a simple surgery and she would be out the next day. Dr.Scharf operated on her for Ciatic nerve problem and pain in her back and leg. She came out of the operation, still has the paid and has lost the use of her foot. Drop foot. He says there is nothing he can do and to wait and see if she recovers.

He is a very straight forward doctor. He will tell you what is wrong and what he thinks will help get you back. He does not only tell you what you want to hear but what he honestly thinks.
