Thank you, Dr. Simon and Team.  From surgery to Paris in less than six months! Your 4 – 5 excavation and flying buttresses worked. I went from sitting to circumvent numb legs to striding to keep pace with my brothers: Notre Dame, Montmartre, Eiffel Tower. Merveilleux!  Longest lasting side effects: Balance still improving. Smiles still excessive. (Comments in a letter from M.Y)
