I am an achondroplasia dwarf with multiple spine issues. Dr.Bhowmick is the most skilled surgeon I have ever encountered in my life. I had to have a cervical fusion on top of a mid level laminectomy. He was very carrying sometimes funny and extremely knowledgeable of the dwarf spine. So glad to have found him.

So very compassionate and knowledgeable. What a relief to finally find an orthopedic/neurologist who wants to help find the reason for my pain.

I have never had a worse experience with a doctor. I was referred to him due to the face I have a spinal disorder that has deteriorated over the past 2 years. My curvature is now 89.1 degrees (normal is 20-40) and I have started to develop compression in my neck. He "looked" at my MRIs and refused to even see me. The message to me was to go to therapy, which i have been in for 4 months. Turns out he never looked at my MRI's because UNC didn't even have them. So unprofessional!
