I was almost bound to a wheelchair and had herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and a fracture in my back THAT ONLY, Dr. Wensel saw on the same MRI that 3-other surgeons never caught. dr. Wensel performed a fusion on my bak as it was my only option of not becoming crippled, and in just 7 weeks I have NO PAIN AT ALL, I'M WALKING, AND NEVER KNEW I HAD ANYTHING WRONG. Dr. Wensel was a great listener with all of my concerns, explained everything, and truly cared. This Doctor is a miracle.

I recommend Dr. Wensel because he is an excellent surgeon. I just received a Microdiscectomy On 10/19/2016 and recovered quickly. There were no complication from his surgery and it was performed at Rochester General Hopital. I did however crest a tear in the dura after a violent sneeze and he repaired that on 11-09-2016. He has great bedside manners and is very easy to talk to. He explains things in a way that can be understood by someone without a medical degree.

I'm very disappointed, I have been suffering with back pain on and off since 1998. This doctor came highly recommended from-one of my medical colleagues. I tried to make an appointment and the secretary was very rude and I could tell didn't have time to help me. She told me I could not be seen because my last MRI was 7 yrs ago and ALL patients must have an MRI and be ready to have surgery. So I couldn't believe it, the last surgeon I met with years ago got an MRI ordered for me under his care.

Dr. Wensel is amazing. He removed my herniated disk from the front of my neck. The stitching and the incision healed extremely well. I would recommend. Thanks Dr. Wensel????????
