      Dr. Dopf and his team are wonderful - they gave me back a near pain-free life. I can't speak highly enough about the care I got, and the result was all I could have hoped for.
      in Crooks, SD |
      I had an experimental surgery Jan 1998 with spondaylis . He fused L4 & L5 on my back. I was about 50 years old. The operation was about 10 hours. He operated on my back going thru my belly. He was very young and did a perfect job. I am a non smoker and non drinker. I have used my back hard ,no problems and at 72 years old Its still good.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

He uses common language when explaining diagnosis and treatment options, and takes minimally invasive approaches to surgery whenever possible.
