Dr. Salo restored feeling in my hands, are relieved me of significant and chronic pain. Both he, and his wonderful assistant Laural, should be commended for working so effectively within the inadequacies of the Canadian health care system

After having an MVA IN 2005 & Suffering 5 years in pain that was increasingly worsening Dr. Salo performed a very complicated procedure on my spine. I was 11.5 hours on the O.R. Table.THANKS to Dr. Salo I am doing much better today AND of course LAUREL ,his office assistant is the very BEST. Thanks to you both. I would want no other than Dr. Salo if any of my family/children ever needed Ortho surgery. He’s the BEST !!!
