What Patients are Saying About Dr. Jay Y. Chun, MD, PhD

I was suffering extreme pain from severe spinal stenosis for two years. The pain radiated down my left leg to my foot, and I could barely walk. When I met with Dr. Jay Chun, he reviewed my MRI and immediately said he could help me return to a normal life and relieve my pain. He suggested this could be accomplished with minimally invasive spinal surgery done through a small incision in my back. He explained the surgery in detail, arranged for pain medication … and two weeks later, the surgery was scheduled. The surgery went very well and only required an overnight stay in the hospital. I am now three weeks into my recovery and doing extremely well. I even did a brief workout on the treadmill this week. I am so happy with the results of the operation as the pain from the spinal stenosis is gone. What more can someone ask of their doctor? He indeed is amazing.

I am a very happy and healthy patient of Dr. Chun's. Without Dr. Chun's immediate action and care, I would not be. My scar looks amazing, and everyone comments on it. My recuperation has been smooth, and my prognosis is great. I highly recommend Dr. Chun.
