My husband had an acute herniated disc. Dr. Gunter and his awesome PA, Andy saw us quickly and got him to the OR quickly. My husband woke up from surgery with no pain and was back playing golf, softball, and playing with our toddler in 3 months. Dr. Gunter was awesome!

I had my back surgery exactly 2 months ago today. Dr. Gunter performed my surgery with Andy Palmer as his assistant. I couldn't be happier with my results!! Both of these professionals have treated me well and I highly recommend this team if you need back surgery.
