My back surgery went very well. Dr. Banks went above and above and beyond what I expected. Dr. Banks really took the time to give me the best outcome and result possible. My progress has been very good and I am expecting it to continue to improve, thanks to Dr. Banks. I would definitely see him again, if needed, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I’ve had lumbar pain, stenosis, and herniation that I’ve been dealing with for over thirty years from the hazards of life as a paratrooper when I was a young man. Dr. Davis provided succinct, experienced advice that was informative and helpful. He also did not recommend surgery, which was more helpful in my case. As the adage says for the physician, “first, do no harm.” Dr. Davis places the patient’s well-being above everything else. Thank you!

As a young person with back pain, it can be scary. I have been a patient of Dr. Wanderman for about 8 months and she has been nothing short of incredible. She explains everything well and takes you seriously. She is an advocate and does all she can to help you. Her and the team have the most incredible bedside manner of any physician I’ve ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone 100 times over.

Dr. Bloom is the “real deal!” He listens, he validates, he teaches and a long-term plan is developed by the time you leave his office. His kindness and understanding surrounds his patients and you immediately believe he won’t give up on you.

Dr. Banks gave me my life back! I came to him with two posterior and two anterior cervical surgeries under my belt. I had a CT scan and was told by three different providers that I had a failed fusion. I went to my previous doctor with this information and he told me I was fine (I was not fine). I went for a second opinion with Dr. Banks and he said I wasn’t fine. Four weeks later I had surgery. I will forever be grateful to him for his wisdom, help and caring attitude. While I may have a whole hardware store in my neck, I am hoping to get to enjoy life again.

I am so appreciative of Dr. Harris, his time, his talented surgical hands (among other staff), and how he went above and beyond by meeting with me and performing surgery on my back. His dedication to helping me so promptly means more than words can express. I thank you immensely.

Dr. Hoel and his team provided excellent care from the first visit to the last appointment following surgery. I was having problems with my neck and back. He came into the room fully prepared to discuss everything that was causing my problems and what options I had going forward. I decided to have the cervical discectomy and fusion, and I had excellent results. My balance is improving and the main reason the surgery was necessary is so that I could continue skiing, biking, and golfing. I am 77 years old and there is a lot of damage to my spine and neck due to arthritis. Dr. Hoel did the surgery with a small incision that hardly shows. I had minimal pain in my upper back, due to the fusion that was done. I highly recommend Dr. Hoel and trust him to give me an honest opinion. He listens and answers all questions thoughtfully. I never felt rushed.

There are no words that can adequately express my thanks and gratitude to Dr. Deal for restoring my “functional” life.  My pain badly affected my quality of life as I was unable to walk short distances or sit comfortably.  It took a leap of faith to agree to spine surgery, but 2 months post-op I was able to vacation in Florida and 3 months post-op, I traveled to Hawaii (all with the permission of my physical therapist).  This could not have happened without Dr. Deal’s surgical skills and expertise plus the care and compassion shown by him and the TCO medical team.  It is reassuring that they continue to be readily accessible should I have any future questions or concerns.

I was referred to Dr. Hoel by another surgeon at TCO. I went in with shoulder and neck pain. I also had numbness, like pins and needles going down my arm and into my left hand. After reviewing my MRI, he diagnosed me with a large herniated disc. After reviewing all my options I decided on surgery. The surgery went great. In the recovery room, all of the pain in my shoulder and the feeling of pins and needles were gone. I would recommend Dr. Hoel for any of your surgical needs.

Dr. Banks is simply the best spine/neck surgeon in my opinion! He goes above and beyond what is expected. He watched me walk into his building and told me the issue wasn’t my back, it was my neck. I walked with a cane, while dragging my right leg behind me. An MRI confirmed he was correct, and we scheduled surgery immediately. After one of my surgeries, my husband had to be out of town for business. Dr. Banks called him on his way home from work to tell him how my surgery went. How many doctors do you know that would do that?

Dr. Banks told his staff that if I ever call with an emergency, they are to let him know because with me, it’s always an emergency! I have referred several people to see him. He is straight and to the point with anyone’s orthopedic issues. If he can or if he cannot help you, he will let you know.

If you know of anyone with spine or neck issues, Dr. Banks is the surgeon for you! I will NOT let any other spine/neck surgeon touch me! I don’t know what I’m going to do when the day comes that he decides to retire, hopefully that’s not for quite a while. He is a very caring and skilled surgeon and I truly appreciate his talent and knowledge. Thank you, Dr. Banks, for everything you have done for me and continue to do for me! I appreciate YOU!
