Rating Feedback for Dr. Lederhaus (863555)

The rating:
'Dr. Lederhaus performed a spinal fusion on my back. After the operation I realized I was'nt getting any better, actually much worse any time I moved. After months of pleading for medical attention, he finally said the pain was "all in my head". He told me to go see a psychologist and said that i was just drug seeking. He told me his work was perfect. It took 13 months to find a neurosurgen and find out that my spinal fusion surgery had failed. My spine had not fused and for that horribly painful year, everytime I moved, my vertebrae caused nerve damage. If this **** treated me with the slightest bit of compassion and respect I may not have suffered the permanent disablity I have today. Dr. Lederhaus needs a procotologist to examine his head!!! Later, I had surgery to fix it, and the surgeon was shocked at the mess Dr. Lederhaus had made, trying to use a brand new procedure without having the knowledge.'

Wow. I have never told anyone their pain is in their head when it comes to spine problems and I have never recommended anyone see a psychologist for pain issues. I have been doing similar spine fusions since the early 90's. I don't have a clue regarding "a brand new procedure without having the knowledge" is completely absurd. We can't cure all things in all patients, but I do try.
