“This guy saved me,” says Thompson of Dr. Kaufman. Thompson, who says he looks and feels 20 years younger from the relief he has gained, reports he was at 50% of his work level prior to surgery, and a year after surgery is now able to play competitive ice hockey and perform at 95% of maximum capacity.

"Thank you for helping me when no one else could, and believing me when so many people thought I was imagining things. You gave me reason not to give up hope, and if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be here today."
Kristen Kuczenski
“I went to The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction site and read about the amazing things they were doing for paralysis and that Dr. Elkwood was on the cutting edge in this area. I was hesitant to resort to surgery, so I wanted the very best doctor and had the gut instinct that he was ‘the one,’” says Green, right then deciding to fly across the country from Santa Fe to New Jersey to see him.
