I went to my family doctor for back pain and numbness in the right leg. All she wanted to do is medicine and physical therapy. My second opinion was with Dr. Cenac. We done an MRI and found a herniated disc. A month later, we done surgery and since then, it's been great. The pains are gone from that side. I'm having problems from the other side and will not hesitate to see Dr. Cenac when the pain becomes to much.

I would most definitely recommend Dr. Christopher Cenac Jr. to all my friends and family. Dr Cenac is an amazing Orthopedic Surgeon. I had an automobile accident & though my life changed forever that day. After, seeing Dr. Cenac, I found new hope in what his experience could do for me. Dr. Cenac fused my neck from C4-C7, I’m so grateful that I have my life back to 100%. My fusion is so beautiful, it looks like it came out of a magazine, perfectly straight, I regained all flexibility, and no longer have any pain, numbness or headaches. I did my part as well, I listen and adhered to his orders of therapy, used a bone growth stimulator, and took great care of the work he has done on my neck. I didn’t have to crutch on pain pills, I put the time in to heal. I couldn’t have had this outcome without Dr. Christopher Cenac Jr. And his guidance. I’m forever grateful and Proud to say; He is my Orthopedic Surgeon. His staff is awesome too! Thank you; Dr Chris for giving my life back!
