I had an extreme case of sciatic nerve damage on the L4 and L5. I was very reluctant at first to have back surgery and when I found out how young Dr. Branko was, I told him I had to pray about it. I prayed and I got such peace about him; so I had my surgery. All I can say is prayer works, thank you Lord! I was very pleased!

I had two discs in my neck that needed surgery. Needless to say I was extremely nervous and had terrible anxiety. Dr. Skovrlj was patient and extremely skilled. Everyone in the Wayne office was professional, friendly and helpful anytime I called or had a question or problem. I just went back for my final visit (1 year after my surgery) and I am so pleased with the results. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone needing surgery.

This is a long overdue review! I was in a very serious accident in January. I was brought to the trauma unit at st joes hospital, were I was told that I had fractured C4, C5 and C6. Not only were they fractured but they were shattered. I don’t know how I ended up with dr branko, but he was the neurosurgeon that treated me. Dr branko had a calming confidence. He did not give me false hope about the risks involved in the procedure that I needed, which could have easily left me paralyzed or worse. He was personable and communicated in a way that was understood easily. By the grace of God, the surgery was a success, without any complications. Dr B and and his assistant continued to check in with me daily until I was able to be discharged. Dr B saved my life. He is a brilliant surgeon with a very likable personality.

When I met with Dr. Branko I had spinal Stenosis, disc degeneration and massive nerve damage. Dr. Branko explained the surgery, as well as recovery along with physical therapy needed afterward. The surgery was a success. Dr. Branko can come across as brusque, but he never made me feel rushed or took his time explaining the procedure. He even drew a diagram as to what he needed to do. I am so glad I went to him.

Our family’s experience with Dr. Skovrlj has been nothing short of wonderful. Our daughter underwent spinal fusion surgery with Dr. Skovrlj not too long ago. As parents, this was a scary time for us, but Dr. Skovrlj made sure that we felt comfortable throughout the entire process. He has excellent bed side manner. He was available via phone, email and in person. He answered all of our many, many questions and concerns. He was very attentive and above all, he made our daughter very comfortable and relaxed about the whole situation. Knowing we couldn’t change the scoliosis diagnosis, I can’t imagine how anything could have gone any better over this past year. Dr. Skovrlj is a confident doctor but more importantly he is also a very caring man who truly wants to help any (and every) one he can. Thank you Dr. Skovrlj for giving our daughter the best outcome possible and for "Getting it Straight"!!

I had a terrible appointment with him. He has a bad bed side manner I left the office crying ,a grown man crying, Basically took him 4 minutes to tell me that I was wrong to come to him and there was nothing Nothing he can do. I was patiently awaiting this appointment I was told that he could fix me. After a year of struggling with upper back pain. 6 doctors later ;I came to this man for help. Crawled away dejected.

Doctor Branko Skovrlj performed a minimally invasive spine surgery for me, which was due to a ruptured disk pressing on a main nerve. I was nervous, but after I talked to him, I felt that I was in great hands and he made me feel at ease! He answered all of my questions and helped me to understand all of the steps of the surgery. Doctor Branko released me from the horrible pain I had before surgery. He is a very professional, very responsible, very caring and very kind surgeon! He is the best!

Dr. Branko performed an AILF on me in November '17. He took the time to listen to my issues without rushing me, where other doctors completely dismissed me after a couple minutes. Explained the condition and the surgery that I needed without making me feel pressured. I truly appreciated the time he took with me . I highly recommend him!
