My husband was lucky enough to find Dr. Darden in 1989. There isn’t enough time and space on this blog to explain and appreciate his expertise and warm demeanor! My husband shattered a disc when he was 19. But didn’t seek relief until 1989! After the surgery, he was pain free. Restricted only from dancing but not from heavy lifting- still pain free. 10 years later...Larry (my husband), had a tumor inside his spinal cord, Dr. Darden found it and recommended an excellent neurosurgeon. We are blessed that Larry had such competent and dedicated physicians.
