I've have had two neck surgeries, using the conventional means. The first surgery in 2009 was an ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) at C5-C6-C7, which did nothing to make me better. Six months after the surgery I started having increasing radiating pain down my right arm and leg. An MRI showed that Cedars-Sinai Hospital did the bare minimum and didn't do the surgery correctly. California's Medical Board blew me off and didn't care, delaying and ignoring my complaint, protecting Cedars (a Jewish owned hospital). I gave up. Cedars brags about having the lowest down-time after surgery. Yeah, because they throw patients out the door who aren't ready to be discharged. I was still bleeding from where my catheter was removed, was dizzy, felt stabbing pain in my chest, and told them I wasn't ready to leave. I was literally shoved into a taxi-cab and left to die. I ended up back in the Emergency Room that night. Cedars is bad news!
They also did the bare minimum on my neck, failing to remove a bone spur (causing spinal stenosis) where they did surgery. By doing the bare-minimum it greatly reduces Cedar-Sinai's risk of any complications. That's how they selfishly keep their statistics high; it's numbers over patients! They left the bone spur in my neck when they could have repaired it. The surgeon was from India, which in my opinion is nothing more than cheap outsourced labor. If you're rich and Jewish, then you get a skilled Caucasian doctor. Refuse their minimal-skilled, welfare doctors from India and Pakistan!!!
