      I had a minimally invasive lumbar fusion with Dr. Templin. I am doing wonderfully. My pain is gone and I have been able to return to the things that I love to do. Dr. Templin and his staff treated me with respect and I felt like a member of their family. Thank you everyone for making my life BETTER!

      My husband and I both rate our experience with Dr. Templin as excellent. He was informative, pleasant, and professional. He dealt with our questions in a caring and efficient manner. His office staff was always ready to help. My operation was handled without any problems. My surgery was the 3-5th vertebrae fusion. I wore a neck brace for 5 weeks and am now completely healed. I would recommend Dr. Templin to anyone needing spinal surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?
