Review of Dr. Murray

-

I have had 3 lumbar fusions and by far, the last one as performed by Dr. Murray, was the least traumatic and most impressive. . His personal caring and "listening" has resulted in excellent pain management and significantly good recovery. His entire team is very available and responsive.

Review of Dr. Murray

I suffered from stenosis in my neck, fused C4-C7. Appointments were always speedy. Great listener. Provided answers to all my questions. Although I had prescription medication for pain, it wasn't needed. He was amazing!

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Oxford, PA |

Dr. Murray removed three herniated discs and fused four vertebrae in my neck, relieving me of years of pain. Recovery was smooth and even with some reduced range of motion, I feel so much better. After years of chiropractors, physical therapists and pain management doctors, Dr. Murray fixed what they couldn't.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Parkesburg, PA |

I suffered for 15 years and tried pain mgmt. (spinal shots) couldn't take it anymore. I went to Dr. Murray. he operated on my back and no more sciatica and I am more than happy. It is like a new beginning. I can walk again without pain and I am so pleased. I would suggest anyone who has a back problem, see Dr. Murray. He is truly a miracle worker. I trust him and I recommend him to anyone suffering back problems.

Review of Dr. Murray

After being hit by a car, I experienced debilitating back pain for two years. Other doctors left me feeling defeated and ignored. Dr. Murray was the first doctor who took the time to understand my injury and made me feel like I was being listened to. He took all of the appropriate conservative treatment measures before recommending surgery. The surgery was a success and I finally have my life back! I can't thank him and his staff enough for going above and beyond throughout the entire process.

Review of Dr. Murray

-Philadelphia, PA |

Prior to finding Dr. Murray, I thought that I was going to have to travel out of state to have minimally invasive spine surgery. Luckily, I heard about Dr. Murray from friends in the medical field. The results of my surgery and my overall experience with Dr. Murray far exceeded my expectations! Not only did I get back to work 2 weeks after my fusion, but Dr. Murray was fabulous during the entire process. You can tell that he truly cares about his patients and it shows. He is truly the best

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Wayne, PA |

I had put off getting a spinal fusion for so long because of the pain and long recovery that I saw with people that had these surgeries. I eventually decided to have a minimally invasive spine fusion at L4-L5 and went home the very next day. The nerve pain in my legs was gone and I only had what I would describe as ‘soreness’ where the incision was. I was doing so well, people couldn’t believe that I had a spine fusion. If someone needs a spine fusion, I hope that they see Dr. Murray!

Review of Dr. Murray

-Exton PA |

Dr. Murray is an extraordinarily skilled spinal surgeon as well as a truly lovely person. After an unsuccessful back surgery 1 1/2 years ago that resulted in continued back pain and a new pain in my leg, I was lucky to find Dr. Murray. Now, 7 weeks after Dr. Murray's surgery, my back pain is so much better and my leg pain is gone! We are blessed here in Chester County to have such a top notch spine surgeon available. His caring attitude and terrific bedside manner are just icing on the cake!

Review of Dr. Murray

-Philadelphia, PA |

Dr. Murray is the best in the Philadelphia area. I saw a number of surgeons and no one else has his experience with minimally invasive spine surgery. He did a minimally invasive spinal fusion at L5-S1 and I was back to work in 3 weeks. A friend that had a traditional spine fusion wasn't back until 3 months after surgery. I don't know why someone would go anywhere else.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in North East, MD |

I was sent to Dr. Murray for surgery to replace a cervical disc. Dr. Murray is very easy to talk to, and took as much time as needed to answer all of my questions and to make it very clear what I could expect with the surgery and the recovery. On the day of the surgery Dr. Murray came to see me in pre-op to make sure I was comfortable and that all my questions had been answered. He again saw me after the surgery to let me know everything went well. I highly recommend him to anyone.
