My back hurt so much that if I drove over a bump I would cry out from the pain. Dr Bo fixed my back 2 1/2 years ago and gave me my life back. I would recommend anyone who has back issues to see Dr Bo. He cares about his patients like know other Dr I’ve ever been to.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive
