    After several years of trying to manage my severe pain and numbness caused by spinal stenosis I saw Dr. Le who recommended surgery; he explained the procedure in lay person's terms and now, after 3 months post surgery I feel so grateful to be pain free! Thanks to the entire Neurosurgery team and 8th floor staff at SW Medical Center, You are the best!

    In 2001 I had a spinal fusion for a congenital pars defect which caused decades of chronic pain and excruciating leg pain. Dr. Hoang Le did the surgury, and as a result I have essentially no pain, and am back, after years of disability, to doing whatever I want. Dr. Le, you appreciate the days weeks of pain I have not had in almost 4 years. I am DEEPLY grateful, as is my wife, Patty. Thank you Rebound Team and SW Washington Hospital.

    On 10/10/2014 I awoke with bad left arm pain, it continued to get worse over the next week. I started visiting my GP and each time came away with a different or no diagnosis. I was issued weak pain killers each time. It got to the point where I felt the doctors thought I was just seeking drugs for recreation and making up the pain which made it even more depressing. My director at work, seeing the state I was in, told me her husband had great success at Rebound and I should just walk in and ask to be treated which I did. My very first Doctor was Dr. Jacobs, who was wonderful. He had a good idea what I had but didn't have the imaging yet, he administered a cortisol shot deep into the arm and for the first time in weeks I finally had some relief. My next appointment was Dr. Gambee who diagnosed me initially from just seeing my arm on top of my head! This evidently is a strong indication of a herniated disk pressing on the arm nerve leaving the neck, which was later confirmed by MRI. Then I was handed off to Dr. Le for surgery, he as the preceding two was excellent. He described the two methods he can do to fix it listing the pros and cons of each. I picked one and had the surgery about a week later. From the moment I awoke I knew it was fixed I had zero pain in my arm FINALLY after two months! These Doctors of Rebound literally gave me my life back, thank you so much god bless. Every single staff member was professional and courteous from the front desk to the Xray technician ALL of them were exceedingly polite and kind, I would not hesitate to recommend or use them again myself.

    Five years ago, I was frightened at the thought of back surgery but reached a point where there was no other option. Dr. Le gave me my life back.... I was terrified to have all 3 affected levels of my spine treated. So, four years later... (Last May) I had no choice but to have the next 2 levels treated. Again Dr. Le was fantastic ... I have never felt better and in 40 years my back has never been as pain free as it is now. Thank you to Dr. Le, his staff and crew for taking such great care. I have recommended him to many..
