What People Say About Dr. Brian Su, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I knew as soon as I met Dr. Su that he was the right surgeon for me. He saw things in my imaging that no other orthopedist had seen. Equally impressive, he wanted to make sure that his plan for what he envisioned as a complicated surgery was the right one, and he sent my imaging off (with my permission, of course,) to several other top spinal surgeons around the country to get their opinions. It has now been a year since Dr. Su operated on me. The surgery was not an easy one. Dr. Su and an assistant surgeon operated for 11 hours, breaking a natural fusion that had occurred, removing and replacing three discs, decompressing, and fusing my spine from L2-S1. But one year after being bent over and almost unable to walk, I am pain free and full of energy (and have been for probably nine months), walking several miles a day and exercising. Dr. Su gave me back my life when he performed this spinal surgery.
