My husband had to have emergency back surgery for 2 herniated discs on December 21,2018. We were so scared! Dr. Robson was amazing! He answered all of our questions and explained the procedure and the urgency of needing to do it. My husbands pain is relieved and we only good things to say about the wonderful, highly qualified surgeon! Jayne his PA was also very kind and knowledable. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of spine surgery. Thank you Dr. Robson:)

Extremely disappointing experience. Had a complicated surgical problem exacerbated by this surgeon. Became paralyzed 6 months after procedure. He refused to see me for complications. Next surgery revealed all screws loose and some in joint spaces. Permanent nerve damage...

I was referred to Dr Robson after almost 2 years of sever back, leg, and hip pain from several falls. My previous 3 drs had diagnosed me with needing surgery. I spent less than 2 min with Dr Robson only for him to say he wanted a 3rd MRI, this time of my brain, to see why I was falling. When I asked him about my grade II and grade III tears, buldging disc, he said I needed to swim, use the elliptical and do ab exercises. I was a very active before my falls. I'll find someone else.

After seeing numerous surgeons and getting diagnoses' with everything from, I don't know what it is but it's not your back, to being surgery being cancelled for asking the hard questions I was at my wits end. Facing disability as a 47 yo I saw Dr. Robson who told me on the first visit he knew what was wrong and that he could help me. Now six years later I can hike through Cuivre State Park with 70 lbs on my back and sleep on the ground. A huge, five years late, thank you to Dr. Robson!!
