In 2017 I was diagnosed with spondylolisthesis at my L5/L4 vertebrae. At the time my symptoms were not severe and the doctors that I saw did not recommend surgery. The recommended injections at the time did very little to relieve my symptoms. In 2018 we moved to South Florida and my condition continued to worsen. I had reduced my physical activities significantly. Playing golf was a thing of the past. After doing extensive research I decided to see Dr. Gottlieb in the autumn of 2019. By then my symptoms were getting advanced. For example, I was no longer able walk on my heals, my left leg was showing signs of muscle atrophy and my pain was a constant detractor. We decided that surgery was the best path forward (L4/L5 fusion and L3 decompression) and planned to schedule it at some point in 2020. The morning of 27 December I awoke and could barely walk. Making it around our small house without assistance of some type was not possible. I called Dr. Gottlieb and we scheduled the surgery for the third week of January 2020. My surgery went well and upon awakening in my room I could tell something was better! Success! I will tell you now that this surgery is a major undertaking. It is painful and the rehab process takes months but if you commit yourself to the process your results can be life changing. Today, I am back in the gym, scuba diving and a few weeks ago I resumed playing golf. I truly thought I may never play golf again so this result is miraculous for me. Jonathan Gottlieb is an attentive, caring human being. He’s also a very fine surgeon. He’ll give it to you straight but there is absolutely no pressure in his manner. I am pain free. What else could you ask for?

Me siento muy complacida con el profesionalismo y excelente atencion del equipo medico del Dr Jonathan y el Dr Lerma. Fui operada exitosamente de una hernia discal L3 L4 que me limitaba mis actividades diarias. Tenia mucho dolor lumbal y caminaba con mucha dificultad. Gracias a la cirugia impecable hecha por este equipo medico hoy estoy recuperando mi estilo de vida normal. Eternamente agradecida!

Strongly recommend Dr. Lerma & Dr. Jonathan Services.

Dr. Gottlieb was referred to me by my PT who had, or was in then process of, rehabbing five of his patients; he wasn’t wrong. After 10 years of suffering chronic sciatica, the last year kept it more acute and bringing to a complete halt, any activity requiring me to walk more than 125 ft without blinding pain. As an avid nature lover with a passion for outdoors and wildlife photography, this condition had robbed me of enjoying any and every activity requiring two legs in forward motion. Anyone who suffers the agony of this nerve completely understands how debilitating it is and how much of your life is placed on hold while suffering through it. I had a lumbar spinal fusion procedure (known as an OLIF) on 3/11/2020 and by my 5th day post-op, I was walking 5000+ steps and climbing stairs 8-10 times daily. Dr. Gottlieb is very much a professional, but he is also a warm, compassionate human being who just happens to be a great surgeon as well. I’m forever grateful to the therapist who recommended him to me, and indebted to Dr. Gottlieb for handing me back my active life once again.
