leipan71, I did not have surgery with Dr. Desai, but had my one level L4-5 with Clavel Dec 2017. After my experiences, I would suggest to pick the most skillful surgeon. From the outcomes of many people, it appears Dr. Desai is up there. The rest, hospital stay, rehab, post surgery communication etc, is not the greatest for any of the EU or US docs. It will be up to you to heal, and over time you will, if your diagnosis and surgery is accurately performed. Desai is probably booked for a reason!
