I went to see Dr Anagnost for a second opinion. I had stenosis, my bottom disk ruptured and 2 disks above were bulging. The first doctor wanted to fuse my back. I was in tremendous pain and could not walk, stand, lift, lay down, etc. I will be forever grateful to Dr Anagnost for my back surgery (March 2014), and his understanding. I was 62 yrs old. He told me I would not be 15 again, but I understand that totally. He told me what to expect in the future with my back, which I appreciate. Doctors cannot perform miracles, but I have and will continue to refer others to him.
