An Incredible Patient Story

Dean Otto was paralyzed after being hit by a truck during a morning bike ride. Within hours, Dr. McGirt, performed spine surgery that gave Dean a chance at a full recovery. One year later, Dean ran the Napa Half Marathon with Dr. McGirt and Will Huffman, the man who hit him. All three men have appeared on local TV as well as the Ellen Degeneres Show and the Sunday Today Show to share this amazing patient success story.
