Although it's too early to judge whether or not [my procedure] was successful, I can easily comment on the staff and facilities. The doctor's office is clean and pristine for one. For a medical practice, how well the office is kept is usually correlated to good staff, management, and standard procedures, and in this regard my assumption was correct. Everyone from the lovely medical assistants to the nurses, from the managers to the doctor, himself, were kind, helpful, and optimistic (Also, every one of them will chat with you for days if you let them, which is always welcome).
When I was in the waiting room with my wife another patient asked me bluntly, "Back or neck?" I'm glad I responded to him, even though I was highly anxious and somewhat scared. He told me of his success with his neck and that he was back to get his lower back fixed, filled to the brim with optimism. Not a doubt in the man's mind it would work wonders, just as it did for his back. It was amazing to meet someone just before my appointment who wasn't a sceptic, knew the procedure, and could testify to its veracity.
Carrie and the doctor ran through everything with us at the office and again at the surgery center. The team at the surgery center was fantastic as well, and very warm to receive us. There, I was given an IV, given some anxiolytics and then down to the operating room. The doctor was jamming on some classic Johnny Cash and everyone was happy and excited to help me. Amazing, amazing people. After the procedure I was rolled into recovery and rejoined with my wife. I won't lie: the pain for me was and is, hours later as I write this I'm my hotel bathroom, trying not to wake my beautiful wife) pretty severe, but that's to be expected and I'm not concerned. The doctor gave me a handwritten note telling me how I did, which is something I've never seen, and I'm an RN, so I have plenty of experience with doctors. He also gives you a before and after photo of your treated discs. I'll write again in a few months time to tell of my progress, but I'm excited I finally have started my journey into recovery.
Having lifelong lower back issues and relatively new issues with my neck, I was faced with a 3 to 4 level fusion in my neck and possibly more in my lower back. Fusion would have drastically diminished my quality of life, and in Canada, they have no other options. After conducting extensive research worldwide for an alternative treatment I found Dr. Pauza. Four weeks after contacting his office, I flew to Tyler, Texas to undergo two separate procedures. One for my neck and one for my lower back. I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Pauza and his staff, both at his office and the surgical center. Dr. Pauza truly sets the gold standard for customer service and patient care. I'm 6 weeks out from my procedure and I feel great. Dr. Pauza has truly given me my life back!
Hello, I'm now 18 years old and I have two spine procedures done, 10 months apart. The best experience so far in my life is my mom finding Dr Pauza. My first surgery in Texas was my L2/L3/L4/L5/S1. That was done in stages of sports, L5S1 was from crossfit. The L2-L4 was getting speared in the back in Football. I was 15 at the time of the initial start of all this. I was a wrestler since I was 6. My life was geared towards being in the Olympics as a wrestler. I tried to go back but it was impossible. My back was too screwed up. I did physical therapy for 3 years total. My second surgery came 10 months later, back to Texas. My next surgery was my neck,I had my C34-C45-C56 done. At the time I only had two months left of my year from my back surgery. My neck and back are awesome. I am sucessful in my own business now as a Heavy Equipment operator. The surgerys were life changing for me. I tell everyone about it. I'm not going to tell you it was easy, a year down.. taking care of yourself, being careful at lifting and relearning life as I knew it. I keep myself in shape and eat well. The support you receive before, during and after is awesome. They are always there for you. No one can say that about doctors anymore, I can say it about Dr Pauza and his Disk Seal team. The people here changed my life. I am forever grateful to them.
I had Dr. Pauza's (PDT) injected into two discs one of which had absolutely NO disc tissue. It was vertebrae on vertebrae almost a year ago. I had seen other doctors in the past that wanted to do a double fusion at 34 years old (which if anyone knows about fusion they typically fail and or break down adjacent tissue requiring the doctor to fuse again). A 3rd level fusion is almost a death threat. I was so blessed to find Dr. Pauza and have his PDT. It's almost been a year and I'm off all pain medications that I was having to use and have been relieved of horrific pain for years! He regrew disc tissue which was NOT there before he treated me! This procedure gave me a second chance at life. I had been suffering from lower back pain for 10 years! This is a miracle procedure and I'm even taller! God Bless Dr. Pauza, he is the most humble person, and truly cares and gives each of his patients all access to him and his staff members day or night. I'm thrilled and so thankful that I finally got my life back! I can't thank Dr. Pauza enough! God Bless you Dr. Pauza! Thank you!!
Kevin Pauza is the best spine physician in the world. The upset patients are likely only upset because he encouraged them to work and he decreased their narcotics. I can tell you that seven doctors tried to help me before Pauza. His invention of a disc biologic has me back to running marathons and 10K races. Before Pauza, I had to use crutches. Pauza is like a God when it comes to spine. The wait is worth it. If there is no wait, then your doctor is not as good as Pauza. Other spine doctors for good reasons have ranked Pauza number one in Texas. Pauza saved my life. That is why Pauza sees Princes and Kings. Only Pauza could fix me. Thank you God, for Dr. Pauza
