Late night pre-op, getting ready for 5 am surgical procedure. Boston , MA

“AFTER 7 ,,,,,,, THAT’S CORECT 7 BOTHCED F-ing surgeries, years and years of denials form the VA and nowhere to go. I finally get ahold of Sformo and after 13 hours of surgical procedures, 1 year & 1/2 of nonstop work back and forth with Mike I had the rods replaced, the broken screws replaced, the cages replace on and on... he saved my life!! The VA did nothing.
