    Location: Private practiceService: spondylolisthesis and central canal stenosis. Unable to stand or walk without severe sciatic pain

    Five hour surgery with complications from two cysts but excellent outcome. Home after two days, pain free in under two weeks. Now five weeks post surgery and back riding my bike and doing all normal activities. Dr Oehme, Arturo Gomez (anaesthetist) and the care at St Vincents Private Hospital cannot be faulted. Brilliant!

      Location: Private practiceService: Multiple bulging disc

      Knowledgeable, attentive and compassionate. Experiencing 8 yrs of back pain to leg and lost my job with plenty of sleepless nights. Seen many surgeons all provided negative comments or sky rocketing gap fees if to proceed with back surgery. Until i read his review and decided to give it a try and never regretted it after my surgery 5 weeks ago.
      He had a team gathered with Chris Brooks for vascular and Arturo Gomez for anaesthestist and performed ALIF on my L5/S1 under 3 hr 15 mins. Woke up feeling groggy and have manageable pain with correct pain killers and now able to swim, walking up and down the stairs and walk normally on street pavement.
      He have all the areas for pre and post surgery needs covered and able to answered all my queries. He is aware of the latest technology and approach after i did an extensive study on my current condition and seen 10 over different neuro surgeons, in victoria and nsw along a few other pain doctors none helps. He is genuine with his work, had my artificial disc installed correctly using vascular approach. I was skeptical about the risks involved but glad i trusted him after reviewing others experience. I will provide more updates in six months time and address how this surgery will change my life. I am hoping this reduced pain will allowed me to return to work. Thank you KHN TEAM!

      Service: Lumbar Decompression Laminectomy

      I had suffered Sciatica for 2yrs . Thinking surgery was my " last resort " . I put up with so much pain . Finally I was referred to David . He was gentle and kind . Very informative about my procedure . I went to StJohnof God Berwick . Excellent care
      I am now pain free !! Surgery was total success
      Could be improved: I truly don't think one thing could be improved . To my way of thinking , David
      was completely confident in what was required of him to help me ...... he conveyed that to me at the outset and I felt totally happy that all would be well !
      And it was .
