My wife had surgery perform by Dr. Strausser in December of 2016. She had 2 large synodical cysts removed and fusion of the L3 to L5 Vertebrae done. Her recovery has been spectacular and she is close to being released soon. Because of her age, fact is that she will never be perfect but we knew that going in. However the relief from the Pain was a God Send. We would recommend Dr. Strausser and have to several people. He is straight forward but what do you want a Doctor or Hand Holder.

If you are looking for a straight shooting. no BS surgeon, he is your man. First, he is a fantastic lumbar surgeon. That's the only surgery he does, period. Lumbar only. He actually wants surgery to be a last resort treatment. So if you have lower back problems, I can recommend Dr. Strausser whole heartedly.

Dr Strausser is a brilliant orthopedic surgeon. In 2009 I had major back surgury. After 8 and a half months I returned to work, working 50 hrs a week standing on concrete 10 hours a day. He is a great Doctor.

I found Dr. Strausser to be correct in diagnosing and treating my back problem. He made the right call, and I'm finally out of pain.

ARROGANT,SELF ABSORBED,NO BEDSIDE MANNER!! In it for MONEY!!!! I saw him for continued back pain (from head on accident) saw him 1st time, told my prob I was FAT!!!! That was my prob!!!! Continued seeing him for 3mo. Finally I'd had enough. He told me "I'm so sick of patients comming in COMPLAINING of back pain that I CAN'T EXPLAIN" He said I'm so stressed, I have to go to the gym! REALLY DR MAYBE A DIFFERENT JOB (trainer for gym???) I had disk rupture and other. Can't see Dr?? Go back to school

Awsome Doctor, Awsome staff, my pcp recomended him and was spot on! I was a poor candidate for fusion, due to my weight, he told me what to expect, the dangers, anpicipated outcome. He got it done with less pain than I was expecting, as I continue to recover, I am confident He and his staff will make sure I attain the best results my body an give me. Would recomend this surgeon to anyone.

By the end of the visit I wanted to punch him I was so pissed at him. He did not listen to me, was overly rude and thoroughly condescending. I do not know how he is as far as a surgeon but I would not let him cut on my back. Patient support and empathy is very important in medicine and this man (can't say doctor) exhibited neither.
in Willis, Tx |
I had a collapsed disc and back in December had fusion surgery on my L5/S1. I only wish I had done it sooner. I'm 4 months post and I have been pain free since my surgery. My experience with Dr. Strausser was wonderful; I knew I was in good hands and trusted him completely to perform this operation. He is very direct and to some that may be off putting. However, I went to him for his skills and knowledge on the procedure I needed, and am so glad I did.

He is a UNCARING ,RUDE,...SOB!!!!!. He told me that I has neck/shoulder problems because I was OLD!!!I have to expect that in life.. He NEEDS to go back to school and LEARN bedside manners along with NOT being so RUDE!!!!!!,,, Later on??? I HAD to have neck surg!!! WHAT a great guy.....BARFFFFFFF
