In July of 1988, Dr. Patrick William Hitchon performed a routine L-5 fusion surgery on me.  After surgery my leg was paralyzed.  He informed me it was not due to his surgery and assured me that it WOULD heal within 3-years.  After 3-years and it not healing, he told me he thought I'd have gotten used to a paralyzed leg by then.  He had NO remorse for my paralyzed leg.  I asked him for a referral.  He exploded and stated if he couldn't fix my paralysis, nobody could.  He refused to treat me after that.  18-years later intense pain sent me to another surgeon.  I was scheduled for a 3.5 hour surgery; it took 9.5 hours due to the errors of Dr. Hitchon.  My new surgeon informed me that my paralysis leg was the fault of Dr. Hitchon and that if I'd come to him sooner he could have corrected it.  Dr. Hitchon was too arrogant to admit his error.  That is why Dr. Hitchon refused to operate on me again.  He was also hiding his major surgical error . . . He broke the screws on the "bracket" on my L-5 vertebra.  I know this because when my 2nd surgeon opened me up, he saw the "bracker" installed by Dr. Hitchon.  There was NO bone growth or fusion.  When he touched it, it fell off my spinal cord and my L-5 vertebra fell into 2-pieces!  I was informed by my 2nd surgeon that Dr. Hitchon knew of this all along.  Dr. Hitchon let me live with a paralyzed leg and broken back for 18-years.  It is a miracle I can still walk.  BEWARE of Dr. Patrick W. Hitchon.
