Overview of The Spine Center
GEORGE SHARER | PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
In 2006 when he was riding his bike down from Vail Pass and around Lake Dillon, George had a bicycle crash that left him unconscious for around six minutes. He woke up with a cracked helmet, and plenty sore from bruises, “toe to ear,” but shook off the injuries and tried not to let the accident slow him down. “I skied all winter like I always do, but by that spring I couldn’t walk for about a week.”
LISA LEMAY | PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
At what felt like the end of a very long road of trying to find a solution for a painful condition in her neck, Aspen resident Lisa LeMay saw an ad in the newspaper for the Brain and Spinal Center at Valley View Hospital, and met Dr. Wade Ceola.
