      in Puyallup, WA |
      Dr Newell performed an MVD on me in December 2015. I was in constant pain and the last year was unbearable. Although I am suffering from double vision now the surgery was a total success. No more pain. Dr Newell explained the procedure and his staff is incredible. Highly recommend to anyone suffering from trigeminal neuralgia.
      in Seattle, WA |
      He did a C6/C7 fusion. I have no residual pain and was snowboarding and surfing within 6 months. He explained things really well. He was patient when I tried to resist surgery and explained how critical it was (fluid was pressing on my spine and making my leg buckle periodically - could have caused paralysis). He said he had done the procedure 2500 times. Talk about feeling confident. I would highly recommend him.

      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.
