I would ask the surgeon to give my name (your name) to patients who have received this surgery from him. And ask him to ask these patients to call you or email you about the results. Clearly he can’t give you patient names and contact information – patient confidentiality – but you can wave your confidentiality rights so the surgeon can give your contact information.

Just wondering if you had surgery. It has been over a year for you. I am facing a what I believe may be a similar surgery. Lumbar Fusion.
