Michael Cawley has moved to another area of neurosugery treating brain disorders. I believe I was one of his first patients when he was dealing with spinal fusions and laminectomies. The end result is that I have little use of my left hand which shows 0 strength; my right hand shows 50 on a strength test. My take is that he is inept.
I had the same surgery sevearal years before dealing with Cawley. The surgery, then, was 100%. Just look around, get opinions. A goof in spinal surgery can be life altering.
