After reviewing my CT scan my GP has recommended I see a surgeon and get an opinion regarding my back problems that are now causing serious mobility issues. I have been seaching on line for a neurosurgeon in the Toronto, Canada area. Can anyone help me out?

DDD, Significant Spinal Stenosis, bulging disc L3-4, L4-5 advanced degenerative changes plus ... plus..


  • I have been diagnosed with Severe Spinal Stenosis, I have hearneated L4-5 and L5/S1, based on CT and MRI

    I am going for surgery on 9th of September at Trillium Mississauga.

    You can ask your family doctor to arrange an appointment for you with a neuro surgeon
  • i was wondering which neuro surgeon you saw at trillium and how your surgery went. I also have an appointment at trillium in a few weeks.

  • He is at Toronto Western and he is head of neurosurgery. It's a long wait to see him and then have the operation but, based on my husband's results and those of another person we know who was confined to a wheelchair before surgery, we think he is a gifted surgeon.
