What People Say About Dr. Christopher Cenac Jr, MD

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!
