"I am pleased to announce that I will be returning to Denver Spine Surgeons in October. I value the support and understanding that I have received during my absence and want to thank everyone for their patience during this time. After a lot of thought I have come to the decision that upon my return, I will be restructuring my practice. I have decided to shift the focus of my practice to specializing in the treatment of the cervical spine. The treatment of cervical spine ailments has always been my passion and I feel that this is where my attention should be focused."
"I will be scheduling new and established patients that require evaluations and surgical consultations for their cervical spine issues beginning October 9, 2017. With regard to my prior patients that were being treated for their lumbar spine, I realize this change may be difficult and I hope to make this transition in care as smooth as possible for you. So I am pleased to let you know that Dr. Okezie Aguwa has recently joined Denver Spine Surgeons and will be available for consultation."
