      I suffered thirty years of back pain, numbness, tingling, muscle irritability. I've had multiple surgeries performed by highly skilled physicians. Two years ago Dr Antezana implemented spinal reconstruction correcting neurological and orthopedic problems with my spine. The surgery was massive and recovery lengthy. The doctor had made all of these effects clear prior to the procedures. Two years post-surgery I am able to pursue all of the activities I value, a testimony to DrAntezana's skill

      Dr. Antezana and his staff are absolutely amazing. The care I received is second to none. I was well informed about the surgery including possible complications and side affects. Dr. Antezana and staff truly care about their patients.

      Absolutely Stellar Surgeon. This was my second surgery for pain relief in my arm caused by stenosis in my neck. He is the kindest, most professional caring Doctor you could hope to find.

      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.
