I had a lumbar cyst. After unsuccessful attempts were made to administer cortisone, Dr. Lee and I decided on a microdiscectomy and decompression to help with the significant glute and leg pains. Dr. Lee was open to discuss every option and was appropriately conservative about each step leading to the surgery. The surgery was a complete success and I had immediate pain relief. Dr. Lee explained everything clearly and listened well to all my concerns and questions. Follow up appointments were timely and helpfully reassuring. Although it was minimally invasive, it was still spinal surgery. I was very pleased with Dr. Lee's skills and professionalism and happily recommend his services.
