      While helping to care for her father, Donna injured her back. After reviewing the MRI with SSM Health St. Mary's Dr. John Lehmen it was discovered she had a disc herniation sitting on a nerve causing her intense pain and numbness. Dr. Lehmen discussed treatment options with Donna and a minimally invasive surgery was chosen as the best option. Donna is now back to her normal daily activities and routine.

    *Dr. Lehmen performed my neck surgery in 2013 - I have had no problems with my neck since. He did an awesome job! When I was told by a pain dr. in Columbia I had to have major back surgery, I told him the only surgeon I would let do it is *Dr. Lehmen, if he would agree. I seen *Dr. Lehmen, he took MRI's and agreed I needed the surgery. My husband & I both were scared to death about the surgery, *Dr. Lehmen brought us back in to discuss it with us. My husband & I both felt so much better after talking to him. He took the time (between his surgeries that day) to explain it all, even how he is doing a new procedure that is harder on him, but better for his pts. Wow! I was so amazed. I totally love *Dr. Lehmen & *Kevin Huffman, I will not let any other dr. touch my back/neck but *Dr. Lehmen. I have told and will cont. to tell everyone how good *Dr. Lehmen is and he is the only one I trust with cutting on me. I have not had the surgery yet that will happen on May 23rd. I am still very scared only because I don't like being put under, but I know on that day my life basically lies in his hands, I trust him that I will come thru it fine and my back will be in better shape after recovery time I pray *Dr. Lehmen will always stay here, so many people need a dr. like him. Very good!

    I have never had a bad experience with *Dr. Lehmen's office and have referred him and his practice to many people.

    I had a B.P. flare-up at pre-op session so they said we couldn't do the surgery that was scheduled for 4-23. I have an appointment with a cardiac specialist on 5-1 so we will see if we can proceed with surgery. I have received by mail a packet with incorrect information about follow up meetings for the surgery that didn't happen. Will need to be updated if I can have the surgery.

    Excellent. He understands that everyone wants the cheapest, and most non invasive option. in my case, that wasn't an option. He was very direct, and confident. He didn't show me my MRI, but I got a copy and looked at it. I immediately could tell what he was describing to me in our appointment, and I could see that my stenosis was severe. I don't have insurance, and his fees are very affordable for my surgery. ****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
