Dr. Liu and Dr Frazier
I had my back surgery November 10, 2012 and recovered just as you said I would. I suffered with a degenerating back and pain for 15 years until I could no longer walk my drive-way. After you operated on me, I slowly recovered over the next year. I then booked my long desired trip to china.
Well, as you can see, here I am on the Great Wall! I also climbed up 125 flights of stairs to the top of Mt. Emei, Leshan, Sichuan and stayed as the Buddhist Monastery there. NEVER would I have thought this possible. I have no more back pain. I am so happy. Thank you for giving me my life back.

THANK YOU, DR. LIU
How can I possibly thank you Dr. Liu?
I’m in a much better place now, because of you
I came to you, uncomfortable, in pain, and feeling my worst
When I met you, I just knew you put your patients first
Told by other patients that you work “miracles;” they should know
The way they could move now, they were very eager to show
I put my trust in you and you didn’t let me down
I wear a huge smile now, saying good-bye to the “pain frown”
Visiting me before surgery, you wanted to be sure I understood
That you could surely help me, I had no doubt that you would
You prepared to fix one problem but discovered there were two
Doing what is best for your patient is what you do
Compassion with my family, aware that waiting there for me was Marie
Explaining how well I did, what was done and when she should see me
Important for both patient and family is peace of mind
The compassion and skill you possess is hard to find
You are a gifted surgeon but also a compassionate healer too
So many have been healed because of you!
May you continue your blessed healing to impart
God Bless you and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I am 34 years old. I had endoscopic back surgery by Dr. Liu at Atlantic Spinal Care, in November 2006. I had back and leg pain for more than 5 years. It started after I had my child. The pain in my leg was so terrible that I could not do the things that I loved to do anymore. I tried physical therapy and I did back exercises, but my pain was getting worse day by day. My doctor sent me for MRI. I was told that I had a few disc herniations in my lumbar spine.
I am a medical doctor from China. I knew that I had no other choices other than surgery to relieve my pain. I knew the bad results of open spine surgery. I searched the Internet about more advanced laser surgery. I contacted a doctor in Florida whom I found from the Internet. I was ready to go to Florida to have laser surgery by him. Just before my trip, I found Dr. Liu in local news paper and realized he was doing same type of laser surgery in New Jersey. I made an appointment with him for a second opinion immediately. Dr. Liu reviewed all my history and MRIs. He was confident that he could help me. Dr. Liu was very nice and professional. I decided to cancel my Florida trip and asked him to do my surgery. He did discogram for me, a diagnostic test. He suggested me to have two levels of endoscopic discectomy. In November, 2006, on a Thursday morning, I had my surgery. You could not believe it. I walked home the same day without pain. I went to work on next Monday, only in 3 days. Now, six months after my surgery, I am so happy that I can do the things that I could not do for a few years.
I had lumbar disc herniation and a back surgery in 1974. Lately, my left leg was extremely numbed and painful. I could not walk for more than one block because of that. I must stop and find a place to sit down. I could not go anywhere for social activity in the last six months before the surgery.
On September 21, 2007 Dr. Liu did the laser spine surgery for me to enlarge the cannel that the nerve running out and removed the spine disc material that pinched my nerve. I was awake with a little sedation during the entire surgery. After surgery, I can walk one hour without numbness and feeling pain now. The surgery is very successful. Now I can drive to go very far away without problem. I do not have numbness and pain feeling anymore.
Thank very much, Dr. Liu. You help me get my life back.
I am 28 years old. I had severe pain in lower back that ran down to my left leg to foot. I could not stay in any position for more than 5 minutes at a time (sitting, standing, laying down). My pain was 10 on a scale of 1-10 for 3 weeks. I was operated by Dr. Liu with endoscopic laser discectomy. I feel 150% better now. No more pain instantly after the surgery. I was walking around that day. Some numbness in left leg is getting better each day after physical therapy. Thank you Dr. Liu. I recommend you to anyone who needs this surgery.
