    Lawrence Lenke, M.D. Miracle Worker

    DOS: 10 July 2017 Length of procedure: 13.5 hours Wake up time: 2.5 hours Showing his extraordinary level of commitment, Dr. Lenke stayed until I was sufficiently awake. Which meant he was with me from 7:15 AM until almost Midnight. The huge doses of Fentanyl and Ketamine used to assure my sedation made the wake up procedure a bit dicey as my heart stopped 5 times. The dissociate dose of Ketamine is something I would have difficulty describing, suffice to say it is something I would never want to experience again. Day 5 post op I experienced an episode of AFib, which set my recovery back a bit. Dr. Lenke assured me this is not uncommon in persons who have experienced extremely long periods of GA. The Allen Spine Hospital staff were exceptional. I consider myself extremely lucky to have been able to avail myself of Dr. Lenke's phenomenal surgical skills and also his extraordinary devotion to his patients. Chet
