in Liberty, MO |
I was diagnosed this summer with Spondyloslisthesis as well as having two cysts in my back. After consulting several surgeons and all of them telling me that a Spinal Fusion was the best way to properly fix my condition. Dr. Peterson took his time to explain my condition to my wife and I, he thoroughly explained the process and recovery. When we left his office we were confident we made a good choice in selecting him to perform the surgery. The surgery was in my mind was a huge success,

Dr Peterson has a wonderful bedside manor. He explained my options, gave me pros and cons of each, gave me his recommendation, and was understanding when I told him I had to think a little before making a decision.

Dr. Peterson is a wonderful doctor. I had surgery Sept 30 and had to just sit and walk for 3 months but he reminded me to be a patient patient. I have been pain free since surgery and feel wonderful. He did an amazing job and I would refer anyone to him. I am now able to start to exercise again and feel the best I have in a very long time. Thank you, Barb Pierce
