Cervical stenosis patient: Dr. Riew saved my life

July 27 | 2018

I have had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis for 43 of my 45 years of life, and when I was diagnosed with cervical stenosis it was a BIG problem. It was going to be an extremely delicate and risky surgery; so much so, that no surgeon I went to in my home state would touch me! Finally, one of them thankfully knew about Dr. Riew and said I should look him up. Dr. Riew saved my life; he gave me back my walking and doing what I love! He is my miracle worker!! Thank goodness we have Dr. Riew!!
