I has degenerative disc disease, severe leg pain,numb feet and numb toes. I had all five Lumbar Disc's fused, by Doctor Alexander Vaccaro. That procedure eliminated the leg pain, the numbness is gone, and the nerve pain is gone. I can not say enough hings about Dr. Vaccaro, he is in a class above Excellent, that few Doctors reach. You can not get better care, anywhere in the country, than at Rothman.
