Dr. Bernstein performed an ALIF on my L5-S1. He was the only surgeon of several who gave me several options and walked through the pros and cons of each. It was a frightening 5 hour surgery but he did a flawless job and I am still 100% pain free with zero mobility loss. The surgery was in 2007. If you are suffering from chronic back pain related to the lower or cervical spine, then I highly recommend Dr. Avi Bernstein. Use him for a consult if nothing else. Excellent surgeon!

Had an office visit due to neck pain from an auto accident. He sent me for an MRI, surgery was scheduled 10 days later, up and walking pain free the same day, went home the next day. No pain meds needed 6 hours post op. It's been 5 days now and still no pain and the problem is resolved. I wished I had done this 2 years ago instead of trying conventional treatments I highly recommend Dr. Bernstein

Dr. Bernstein was not convinced that I was having terrible pain and declared me at MMI (maximum medical improvement) six months after my work injury. My symptoms and pain were only increasing with physical therapy. No bIg surprise here, he was hired by my company's insurance company to do this evaluation so they could stop paying me. Luckily I saw a real doctor soon afterward and had the neck surgery that I needed all along. I was lucky not to be paralyzed.
