    Lee Nelson with Boulder Neurosurgical, http://www.bnasurg.com/ . I've had two surgeries and he's done both and I feel better than ever. He also tries to avoid surgery if at all possible, wasn't in my case, which is another plus.

    These guys got me back on my bike after a herniated disk injury, I went from 1800 mg ibuproferen a day to none in the first 10 days of treatment. Ask for Dr. Todd

    If you need actual surgery then this guy is the THE MAN:

    "Dr. Villavicencio received his medical degree from Harvard with honors in 1995 and went on to complete a neurosurgical residency at Duke University Medical Center in 2001. He then finished an orthopedic spine surgery fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in 2002 and is one of only a handful of surgeons in the country with dual neurosurgery and orthopedic spine training."

    http://www.bnasurg.com/cv/CV_Villavicencio.pdf
    http://www.bnasurg.com/about-us-phys...lavicencio.php

    He did a full artificial disk replacement on my wife this July for a herniated disk she had from a DH accident. Coolest crap I've seen in a long time. She's back at the gym lifting as I type this.

    And he biked into work for the surgery.
