An extraordinary surgeon. After many years of intractable back pain, now pain-free. Explained everything, spent time and was very reassuring. Can't imagine letting anyone else doing this as well.

Review of Dr. Hughes

- in Smithtown, NY |

I had a cervical fusion at three levels in December of 2017 performed by Dr. Hughes and everything went extremely well. He explained everything beforehand very thoroughly and was readily available to answer my questions as well. He changed his schedule so I could have the procedure done at an earlier date due to need and my car before, during and afterward has been excellent. The outcome has been great, especially since my condition was pretty severe so very necessary.

Den Hughes has given me my life back. After three years of constant sciatica and a failed microdiscectomy, another surgeon told me my nerve was permanently damaged and I would never be without pain. Given my age he wouldn't even attempt a spinal fusion. Dr Hughes disagreed, and given the extent of my pain I was able to schedule my surgery only 3 days after my initial consult. 2 months out I am almost entirely pain free. He is kind, caring, and professional. Worth the 2 week consult wait.

I was recommended to see this doctor because of my severe conditions and he basically brushed me off andreviewed one of my mri and not the rest where im in severe pain and because of the fact its workers comp related. In the beginning they promise to fix my problem but then said i cant do anything for you...waiste of time ..

I had a serious problem that was confounding my local MD's. Dr. Hughes made the correct diagnosis and then fixed the problem. One thing that I truly appreciated was the lengths that he went to make sure that I (and my family members) understood the underlying problem and the surgery that fixed it. I'm forever grateful.

OK My Husband had spine surgery with Dr. Hughes about 3 yeats now and he's is about 99.9% better than he went in. This Doctor is GREAT!!! I can't find words to explain or to let people know that if you have or is suffering from any type of severe back, neck, leg any kind of pain that can be fixed by spine surgery please stop living with the pain and go see this Doctor. Even if is just to get his opinion or consult DO IT!!! I live with my husband and saw how much he was suffering.

He's incredible! Spoke to my family in great detail and answered their questions. He is very skillful and smart. Only negative was communication. He didn't know-because of my referral, I didn't know what my situation was, After, he understood I didn't know what happened it was great.He explained all & diagnosed a missed condition.He fixed all my concerns- degenerative and pain in the future. I could have hugged him. Highly reccommend to anyone. Not warm & fuzzy-GREAT surgeon!
