Question Revnowned West Coast ortho or neurosurgeon?

Is there anybody on the West Coast (or the whole country, for that matter), that is regarded as the best for C-Spine surgery?

Re: Revnowned West Coast ortho or neurosurgeon?

Personally...I absolutely love my (Board Certified) Neurosurgeon who performed my last 360 fusion on C5-C6 and C6-C7...I had two surgeries before that and could have avoided the 2nd one if I had found them earlier!!!

People fly from all around the US and even Europe to get treatment/surgery from either my surgeon or any of the other 3 Neurosurgeons..They also treat many elite athletes from around the country as well as all the football/sports teams in our area..

They are compassionate, caring, have the longest list of certifications you will ever see and are on the cutting edge.."ha ha"..sorry couldn't resisit that one.. with technology..

They also have a PM on staff as well as PT services...they are NOT cut first type of guys..they will be honest and upfront about your prognosis and work with you to live the best life possible with either fixing if they can the issue or li

If you want to PM me..as I don't think we can list names on here..I am happy to give you their website and number...For me..if I ever move..I will fly home for my appts. with them!!
