My journey began with a severe car accident on March 12, 2013. I was involved in a rear impact car accident and suffered severe injuries. At the recommendation of a former student of mine I contacted Dr. Lebl. From the moment I met him and his staff at HSS I knew I had come to the right place. He explained what was wrong with my neck and back and asked what I wanted to do first my neck or my back. Being a teacher I didn't want to miss the start of the school year so I opted for my neck. From start to finish I was dealt with in a professional manner and my worries were at ease because of Dr. Lebl. I had a five level neck fusion and believe it or not was back at work 3 weeks later, Therapy went great and on my final check up we went for a back exam and Dr. Lebl informed me I had a fracture and we would need to repair the damaged areas as quickly as possible so my plans were made and in April 2015 my l-5 disc was replaced and I felt the positive results while still in the hospital. The recovery was a bit longer but I am back at school, loving my new chance at living pain free and enjoying teaching culinary arts and coaching basketball. I wouldn't be here with out Dr. Lebl, my former student and the rest of the staff at HSS. Thank you, thank you, thanks you!!!
