Dr. Hedequist literally gave my daughter her life back. She had Bertolotti's Syndrome and needed a back fusion. He was very thorough and we took the conservative approach, trying everything before recommending surgery. Ultimately, we concluded that only surgery would remove the pain. He fused her L5-S1 and it was a total success. Dr. Hedequist is truly amazing.
I had a surgery with Dr. Hedequist and he is just fantastic. He genuinely cares for his patients and is a really great surgeon.

I have been seeing Dr. Hedequist for as long as I can remember. He always listens to my questions or concerns and spends a lot of time explaining things to me so I can understand what's going on. He is good at what he does and knows what he's talking about. Dr. Hedequist is the only doctor I trust!
