Can anyone recommend someone you've worked with in Delaware and would recommend -- or let me know by PM someone you've worked with in Delaware and would NOT recommend.

All spine surgeon recommendations are appreciated, but those for c-spine are appreciated even more.


  • Hi! I don't know if you are willing to travel to PA or NJ, but I just had single-level ACDF on Monday 8/8. My orthopedic surgeon is with the Rothman Institute. They are the best of the best in the region. Many of the physicians are also the team physicians/orthopedists for the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, etc. I work in the healthcare field, and when I was asked who I was seeing and where I was having surgery (Jefferson), the physicians and nurses with whom I work were assuring me that I was in great hands. And, now that the road to recovery begins, I have to say that the experience and care I received during my surgery was top notch. I've had less than desirable experiences at other hospitals in Philadelphia but I have to say that the care I received at Jefferson was wonderful. My doctor called me the night before surgery just to see if I had any questions, and to alleviate any fears or anxiety I was having. My anti-doctor husband even said "wow, that was your surgeon??? I'm impressed!"

    I know it might be a bit of a haul for you but I can't recommend Rothman enough. Good luck!
