      I have had 2 surgery's preformed by Dr. Chad Abernathy, both were complete successes, he has an excellent bedside manner and I can live very pain free today because of his expertise, both of my surgeries were disc/spine issues, both issues had disabled me, I will ever be grateful to him and the entire staff of Cedar Rapids Mercy.

      Exceptional surgeon in every regard. He has extensive experience in neck surgery. I had two herniated disks -c5/c6 and c6/c7 - resulting in excruciating arm pain. Another surgeon recomended fusion. Got second opinion from dr abernathey who recomended replacing c6/c/7. Surgery was a complete success. Immediate and full relief following surgery. There are no other surgeons in Iowan that have the level of experience he has which is critical to successful treatment.

      Dr A is one of the most personable, warm, and funny doctors I'very every met. He has excellent credentials. He went to great lengths to explain every aspect of of my care to me and my husband. He's performed surgery on me 3 times. One day surgeries. Excellent results. I would recommend him highly to anyone needing spinal care.
