What People Say About Dr. Charles Winters, MD

This neurosurgeon should not be allowed to practice medicine of any kind! He implanted Optimesh within two levels of my lumbar spine WITHOUT MY INFORMED CONSENT. He never even mentioned Optimesh to us, which is not FDA approved to be within the vertebral column. I was never a good candidate for minimally invasive back surgery, let alone a two level lumbar fusion. If you want to save your back, you run as far away from this doctor as possible!

I was really impressed by the Dr. He was very concerned about what was wrong. He offered different ways to figure out what my diagnosis is.

Dr. Winters operated on my lower back on the L4 and L5 nerve back in January 2016. I had 3 months of PT. I did not get better, I got an MRI and CT it was determined that during the surgery he pinched my L5 nerve. I had to get a second surgery to release the nerve, he took 5 months of my life. I just got home June 24 after my second surgery and of course laid up again. I would not recommend Dr. Charles Winters to my worst enemy!

This doctor made it so my mother could not walk on her own without assistance for about a year. She had multiple blood clots that he did not diagnose and the only follow up treatment after her discectomy was to drug her up. Never once did he offer another surgery to fix the problem at hand which was a botched surgery. I would never recommend him to anyone
