Please email me if you have had a good experience or know of any good Back surgeons :?? or neuro surgeons in the North Dallas area. I've seen a few docs, but don't get a good vibe from them. I need to have L5/S1 fusion done. Please help. Thxs.

  • Yes, Charry...I have a pain management doc. And my current neurosurgeon and pain doctor work together. I like the pain management dr, but not sure about the neurosurgeon. He doesn't have a great bedside manner and when I leave his office I leave feeling like I haven't had my questions answered nor is he offering info I may need to know that I'm not aware to ask. I'd rather have a referral from someone that has had a good experience than try and pick a dr from a list of names.

    Croswet, I messaged you back.

    Thanks all!
  • I live in the metroplex and had a good Neursurgeon who is well-known and has a great reputation. People who have skiing accidents in Colorado fly down just to have him. He did my microdisectomy, but he also does fusions. I will send you a private message with his name (I don't think they like it when you post names here).
