Do you know Dr. Alan Stern? Yes, the dentist from the radio commercials. He is a very good dentist. I was in his chair getting my teeth cleaned when he told me that he was scheduling low back surgery. He was worried that he may have to give up his practice! He said that the pain in his leg caused from a herniated disc at L4/L5 had become so bad that it was preventing him from seeing patients. His Orthopedist told him that he would never run again, and now he was in so much pain he couldn’t even work! I demanded that he schedule an appointment in our office and reminded him that surgery only had a 50% success rate.
