What Patients are Saying About Dr. Leo R. Spector, MD

"Dr. Leo Spector saved my life, and by that I mean he made my life worth living again. I spent 30 years in agony with back pain. I’m 62 years old. Dr. Spector performed my fusion surgery and I now feel more like 30 than when I was 30. Over the course of 30 years, I’d seen many doctors and had multiple surgeries. He’s absolutely factual in his professional conversations, understands what he asks you to do, and knows what it means to live in pain. Not only that, but he actually gave me relief."

— OrthoCarolina Patient

"Dr. Spector was very patient and explained the procedure of lumbar fusion very carefully, three times over a year and a half as I kept putting it off another 6 months. I am sure he knew it would be needed, but I had to realize that myself. I was ready when I could not walk 100 meters without pain. I am a year out, nearly pain free, and can walk several miles. I had all the modern hardware implanted and am grateful for it. Get two opinions Top praise for Dr. Spector. Happy choice for me."

— OrthoCarolina Patient

"I saw Dr. Spector in April 2016 had an MRI came back for the results. Dr.Spector was so kind and passionate , even thou he knew he was not going to be doing surgery on my spine he took extra time with me and my husband and set me up with the most wonderful specialist .He went beyond any Dr. that I have had and if you need a surgeon I would not hesitate to recommend Dr.Spector.
