Low back pain

Dr. Kosygan is a brilliant and compassionate doctor. Having suffered with severe osteoarthritis that was very painful and beginning to affect my mobility, his timely intervention and treatment gave me my life back! His surgical skills were such that I improved very quickly and his patient post operative care and guidance has brought me back to normalcy. His kindness and consideration are remarkable. On the whole an outstanding surgeon and physician to whom I owe much and can never thank him enough for his care and treatment .

Grateful for the positive experience!
