The surgery is amazing because recovery is so quick! I don’t know if I’m different from other patients, But I have had no pain and I am three weeks past surgery. My physical therapy is to walk each day and not lift anything over 10 pounds. And most important, my back pain has gone away.

I had a free phone consultation with Dr Mork because I live in another state. Dr Mork is a down to earth person!. Very caring, patience and very experienced. He called Me the day of the appointment on time and it was like I was talking with a good old friend. My experience with his staff over the phone was excellent as well: Shannon and Irene are very nice and professionals . Dr Mork listened to my story, made right questions, reviewed my MRI and after all our conversation he gave me his thoughts about what it could be my problem . He didn’t rush for any surgery and instead, he explained me what to do first to get an accurate diagnostic and after that, he can explain me my options . He gave me the confidence to call him anytime to give him updates and also he emailed me a dictation note for my records and to use it, if need it. I don’t know Dr Mork personally; but I trust him . Thank you Dr Mork! C

Dr.Mork helped me diagnose my back issue. He really cares about getting your life back and out of pain. He helped me with a L5-S1 far lateral toxic annular tear. I enjoy health and fitness and with my back issues and nerve symptoms it was impossible to enjoy my activities and even function in my life. He spent a hour with me in his office answering questions and listening to my story and symptoms. He and his staff were professional and kind. It doesn’t matter what state or where you come from he can help! Thanks Dr. Mork!

I had lower back surgery 23 years ago where I was fused. It was a terrible experience and the pain did not go away until years later when I used other methods to get rid of it. A few months ago my hands and arms began to hurt and go numb. I had and MRI that showed severe stenosis in two cervical vertebrae. I knew I wanted a very good endoscopic surgeon, but really didn't even know if one existed in the Untied States. I searched for several weeks through the regular doctor channels, but coul

Dr. Mork and his staff and hospital assistants are compassionate, kind, respectful and extremely competent. Dr. Mork is an amazing surgeon and I highly recommend him. He performed surgery on both my lumbar and cervical spine and I couldn't believe how quickly I recovered! His technique is really state of the art and he provides post-surgical support and follow-up. I wish I could see him for all my medical services; he is so positive and encouraging. Thank you, Dr. Mork!

Since I had spinal surgery that relieved a nerve impingement in March 2014, Dr. Mork has continued to help me with other conditions that i called him about. Whether on the east coast or west coast, Dr. Mork is always there for his patients. I have never been associated with a better surgeon!! Thank you again Dr. Mork for always being there for me.

Dr. Tony Mork did not do any surgery on me. He was however the only doctor who found the problem in my arm and I was able to avoid neck surgery because of that. I had previously gone to a different surgeon who said I absolutely need neck surgery and that I would likely end up paralyzed if I did not have it. I went to a Neurologist I trust and she recommended I get a second opinion. My brother had a coworker who had surgery by Dr. Mork ten years ago and said he was extremely happy with his help,

I've been having pain on my waist, right side of hip and down my hamstring. I tried Inversion table, stretching & eased off playing softball w/ no change in pain. After Dr. Tony Mork reviewed my MRI throughly & answered all my concerns, I schedule endoscopic surgery w/ him. By the 5th day after surgery, the most difficult thing to do is relax & heal, when I was ready to go back on the field. I'm now starting my 7th week, & feel great.?? Dr. Mork is patient, pleasant & explains in detail.
