I had a very large disc herniation and was in tremendous pain when I saw him. One of my family members was treated by him the year prior, so I had no hesitation. I was made to feel comfortable about my surgery because of a couple of factors. One was his philosophy in regards to very conservative surgical intervention. I knew that if he felt surgery was necessary, there were truly no other options. Another was his years in specialty and confidence in my treatment plan. His explanations and preoperative information were beyond thorough. My outcome was fantastic and I recommend him to those in need of a good surgical consultation! Thanks Dr. Lederhaus!
