“Anything is possible if the doctor doesn’t give up on the patient.”

“Anything is possible if the doctor doesn’t give up on the patient.”  ~ Dr. Gleich

I had asked for a picture with Dr. Gleich to show my friends and family who were my miracle workers that’s helped me to be in the best condition I’ve ever had.  Dr. Gleich recounts his own experience of being crippled with severe back problems in his early 30’s, never thinking he would walk again.  I asked him how he recovered. (Remember, he’s 80 yrs old and still skis like he’s a teen!).  His simple answer was a spine surgeon who didn’t give up on him.  And because this surgeon didn’t give up on him, the surgeon thought of any and every solution possible, even creative (i.e. not typical, not textbook) solutions.
