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 get emotional when I think about what Dr. Pateder has done for me. He has changed my life. For many years I have lived with a daily pain from neck and back injuries. I have over the years tried many things to help manage that pain from PT, chiropractic visits, injections, medicines, rubs even getting a hot tub. I met with Dr. Pateder a few months ago and immediately felt I was in the right hands. A month later I underwent surgery to fix my neck. I am still healing but already notice such a huge difference many of the symptoms I had were gone. I have no regrets, to me he is an angel because he has changed my life. I feel I am a new person. Living with daily pain is life changing; but now that some of that is gone I am living again. In a month he is going to repair my lower back. I have no doubt he will do an amazing job and I'll be on my way to my best self! I recommend him any time someone asks about my experience. He is the best!

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

Dr. Pateder performed surgery on my neck over 10 years ago and I have not had any neck problems since that time. I recently underwent a lumbar fusion with Dr. Pateder and I am doing great. He is an excellent surgeon and doctor who is very kind and thoughtful. I highly recommend him and his team.

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!!

Dr. Pateder and his team have been excellent from the start of care, through surgery, and during follow up. I had a cervical fusion due to a herniated disc with significant spinal cord compression in November and have been able to return to coaching baseball with throwing, hitting, and pitching in February. He was thorough in his review of my case, surgical options, possible outcomes, and follow up. I would refer anyone with a spinal condition that requires surgery to him. Thank you so much.

About Me

1. Listen, listen, listen2. Educate, educate, educate3. Surgery is generally the last resort as most problems can & should be treated non-operatively4. When surgery is necessary, minimally invasive approaches generally have better outcomes; however, sometimes a traditional approach is the best alternative.
