Dr. Pateder destroyed my back with 2 surgeries on April 27th and 28th, 2020. I was in such pain for months afterwards and he said it was normal. I ended up going to see Dr Fred Mo at MedStar Georgetown on Dec 2020 and he totally redid everything on Dec 21st, total spine fusion and laminectomy as well. I feel great and pain free. Dr Mo took out everything to include 2 loose screws and put in all new parts the correct way.

Dr Pateder is an exceptional surgeon with great bedside manner. He is thorough in his explanation of procedures, outcomes, risks and benefits. My surgery (done 6 months ago) is a complete success and my functionality is restored 100%.

Excellence! He changed MY LIFE. No regrets, I highly recommend him. He operated on my neck (fusion) and my lumbar spine (3 level fusion-anterior/posterior surgery). I am finally in no pain after years of it.

Dr. Pateder is thoughtful and very kind. He took care of my son with the utmost care and was very meticulous in his explanation and care. My son underwent surgery with him after we obtained several opinions. My son is doing great after his disc replacement surgery and back to playing collegiate sports

Dr. Pateder has been a miracle worker for me. He completed three surgeries to fuse my spine and neck, providing relief from pain and numbness in my arm and leg. He is the epitome of professionalism and expertise. I have recommended him to family and friends who have needed spinal surgery.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Pateder, his staff and Town Center. They all helped me through cervical surgery with efficiency, kindness, courtesy, and compassion even during a pandemic. Pateder's team was there for me with after-care and follow up questions. I definitely recommend this group and Dr. Pateder if spine surgery is in your future.

I am having a great experience with Dr. Pateder. He is the best- calm, caring, charming and a great surgeon. He has operated on several family members and they all have had great outcomes. He did robotic scoliosis surgery on my neck and back 6 months ago. I am recovering great. Most of my pain is gone. I am standing straighter than ever. I highly recommend Dr. Pateder and his team. The best no nonsense, straight-forward surgeon I have ever met

The BEST! I had a disc replacement surgery with Dr. Pateder. I met with multiple surgeons before I came to Dr. Pateder. The other doctors said that a disc replacement was not possible....but Dr. Pateder was able to accomplish if and I am doing fantastic. Thanks to Dr. Pateder and his amazing hands

I have had back pain for yrs (fell on my tailbone) went to see him which was recommended by a distance friend. He walked into the examine room, never touched me. His statement, I can’t help you. He made his determination on my MRI, which we all know doesn’t show everything. Walked out very disappointed.

Dr Pateder was amazing. His entire team was responsive and caring. I went to him with years of pain. I exhausted every non surgical option from PT to injections. Eventually I could not lift my arm. He performed a Spinal fusion on my neck. The pain was gone and I was able to regain full use of my arm after the surgery. Throughout the entire process, Dr Pateder and his team are probably the best healthcare professionals that I have ever been to. The follow ups were thorough. They were also available when I called with any questions or needs before and after the surgery. I highly recommend him as a surgeon and doctor. This team works miracles!!
