“South Texas Spine and Surgical hospital made my total knee replacement so much easier than I anticipated. My anxiety about surgery disappeared the minute I got into pre-op. I was given every consideration possible to make me comfortable and keep me from feeling pain during my whole stay. Hats off to the surgical team, Dr. Amanda Marshall Rodriguez, her assistant, Marie Neira, and all the nurses, CNA’s, and lab techs for all their care and dedication.”
“I just had spine surgery there on Monday, I could not have been more pleased. Their level of care was off the charts.”
“I was released on Thursday, February 22, following a total knee replacement by the fabulous Dr. Amanda Marshall Rodriguez and her surgical team. Many thanks to Dr. Marshall, her surgical coordinator Marie Neira, and the wonderful staff at South Texas Spine and Surgical Hospital, beginning with the awesome Yvonne Reyes Wheeler. From the moment I walked through the door, the warm and welcoming staff eased my fears, beginning with Kelli in pre-op. Special thanks to Charge Nurse Darcy, all the nurses, aides, physical therapists, and the sweet ladies who brought meals. Many, many thanks!”
“Dr. Kuwamura saved my life! He got me in for emergency cervical surgery after an extensive vertebral slip, I went from being bed bound with my left arm swelling to very large proportions, to dusting off my Harley for a ride in no time. He will repair my back next. No other doctor will do! He repaired 3 VERY damaged disks from degenerative disk disease, spondylosis, arthritis, etc. If there’s a name for it, I pretty much had it. I have put off surgery for 10 years or so because all other 14 (yes 14) other surgeons either denied me treatment or just wanted to fuse it all together. Using the Mobi-C swivel disk, he gave me a WONDERFUL alternative. If you’re in pain, go see Dr. Kuwamura. He is a direct, no-nonsense EXCELLENT surgeon.”
“If you have back pain, and steroid shots are not working for you, look into a Spinal Cord Stimulator. Get your life back. The hospital rooms are huge – 14’x 24′, great food, and the Doctors, Nurses and Staff are the Best!!”
