I was referred to Dr. Robert Brenner at TCO, and I couldn’t be more pleased with his care. I was having intense pain that would shoot down my right leg and prevented me from sleeping while also making it difficult to walk. Dr. Brenner started with taking x-rays, an MRI, and a series of Epidurals, and encouraged some Physical Therapy sessions. I liked his approach of not having to jump right into surgery. I ended up needing surgery, after finding that I had herniated three discs and pinched my sciatic nerve to the point my right leg hardly functioned. A few weeks after surgery, I was able to hike mountains in Colorado, and I am now living a very normal life with continued Physical Therapy and using proper lifting techniques. My right leg is still recovering from the nerve damage, and I thank God daily for the care I received from Dr. Brenner. TCO and Dr. Brenner have been so amazingly kind and professional. Having operated a family business with over 50 employees, my expectations of professionalism are very high. Dr. Brenner and all the staff at TCO not only met my expectations but exceeded them abundantly.  I highly recommend TCO!

I had an injury to my neck and after several visits to various providers, I was referred to Dr. Brenner. The difference was night and day. He talked me through my options, both from an educator perspective and as a healthcare provider, giving me a wealth of information. He also welcomed my family to ask questions. The time from the first appointment through 5 months post-op has been amazing, including calls to check in, post-op appointments and a genuine care on his part. You could not have a better team on your side!

After living with chronic back pain for over 20 years, I finally decided to seek help. After meeting with Dr. Wanderman, I found out that my scoliosis had worsened over 25 years to a 55-degree curve and included two herniated disks. Normal daily tasks had become extremely painful and I was preparing myself to accept that living with this pain was something I was going to have to do. Dr. Wanderman changed my life. He is professional, he listens, gives honest feedback, and is an advocate for his patients. My case was major. It included consulting other medical professionals, two surgeries and seven days in the hospital. I am now six months post op and I have zero (I never thought I would say that) back pain. Thanks to Dr. Wanderman, I can enjoy the things I love; spending time with my family, gardening, traveling, hiking, biking and so much more. This Doctor deserves so much praise, he saved my life!

I had gone in to TCO for arm numbness and was hoping to get a PT referral. I was not expecting to find out I needed a cervical fusion and was very surprised in the office to find out I was going to have a major surgery. This was due to the fact that I had spinal cord impingement on MRI. I was scared and nervous. Dr. Harris and his NP, Lisa Benedetto, spent time answering all my questions. I never felt rushed or hurried along during my appts. On the day of surgery, Dr. Harris stopped in to see me before surgery and spent time talking with me about what to expect during/after surgery. He wasn’t rushed at all and made me feel more comfortable. The surgery itself was honestly easier than I was expecting. I had numbness in my left arm almost all the time before surgery. After surgery, this has completely resolved. Pain management was very good after surgery. They were clear on restrictions and possible side effects from surgery, so I knew what to expect at every stage. Jenny, the care coordinator, was able to help me to coordinate disability with my employer and was very helpful. She answered questions left on voicemail or via email in a timely manner. I did call to ask a question a few weeks after surgery, and the response time getting back to me was very short. Staff at TCO is all great, but this team (Dr Harris, Lisa Benedetto, and Jenny) all surpassed my expectations. I would 100% recommend this doctor for any issues involving your spinal cord, neck, or back.

In January 2022, I was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a C6 fracture in my neck. I was able to get in with Dr. Omar in a timely manner and was very impressed! He is a very friendly doctor and explained everything to us. He showed us my x-rays and explained things in a way that I understood. Thank you so much.

Last fall my back was very painful and my ability to walk or stand was limited. I tried injections and various medicines, which had little effect. The condition worsened quickly and I was only able to walk or stand for short periods of time. Then I was referred to Dr. Wanderman. He diagnosed the problem and told me he could fix it, and he did. He performed spinal fusion surgery, which went well. I went home the day after surgery and had immediate relief. I regained my mobility and recovery went very well. I appreciate the care and attention I received from Dr. Wanderman and his staff, before, during, and after the surgery. They responded quickly to any questions that I had. Through the whole process, I felt that I was well taken care of. Thank you, Dr. Wanderman.

Due to some neck issues, I had nerve pain going down all the way down my left arm. Dr. Duncan did an amazing job explaining why my nerve issues were happening. He explained my options very thoroughly, with the last option being surgery. He ended up performing the surgery and it was a tremendous success. My nerve issues were gone, the healing time for my neck went faster than expected, and I haven’t had this much neck radius movement in years. One of my other big concerns was the possible long-term scar on the front of my neck. Thankfully there is no scar at all! I can’t even tell where it was. Overall, I couldn’t have had a better outcome. I was given excellent medical advice and treatment by Dr. Duncan’s entire team.

In January 2021, I started feeling pain in my right hip. It continually got worse and traveled down my right leg to the point of limping and necessary to walk with a cane. The pain continually increased. After months of seeing a doctor for the hip pain, they referred me to Dr. Banks. In just one visit, he identified that the problem was not in my hip (it was in my back) and said we should schedule surgery. His words to me were, ” I can help you”. I had a surgery date scheduled in January 2022. After surgery, I was so surprised that all my severe pain was completely GONE! It has now been 2 months after the surgery. Dr. Banks performed a miracle on me. I am so thankful to be pain free. I will refer anybody to him for back problems.

Dr. Duncan thoroughly explained the procedure for surgery. He answered any questions and concerns. Surgery went well and I am back to normal. I received excellent care.
