I've had 6 spine surgeries and the last 3 were done by Dr. Kandabarow. I refuse to use anyone else, even if we do live in Orlando now. Infact, my daughter has the same condition I have and I've taken her up to Pittsburgh twice, for 2 different areas so he can "FIX" her neck. I am an old Neorosugery nurse and I am very particular about who touches our spines!

Dr. Kandabarow performed my spinal fusion back in 2007. He did a fantastic job and I have no regrets. I would send any of my closest friends and family to him.
