Dr. Corenman performed my microdiscectomy. I was in so much pain I could hardly walk or perform normal daily activities, and finding a comfortable sleeping position was difficult. After the surgery with Dr. Corenman I was able to resume a normal lifestyle including hiking, skiing, motorcycle riding, and resume work at a somewhat physical job with no limitations. I hope I never have to go through that again but I would definitely put my spine in his hands! Dr. Corenman and his staff are the best. Thank you!

Dr. Corenman is WONDERFUL! He performed a TLIF procedure on me 2 months ago and I feel GREAT! No more pain down my left leg and even though I'm still on BLT restrictions, I feel amazing! The two PAs (Eric and Eric) and nurse Sarah Blandford are all OUTSTANDING at answering any additional questions and assisting with out-of-the-norm issues (ie. being called for jury duty). I am telling everyone I can about Dr. Corenman, his staff and ALL the GREAT people at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO. THANK YOU ALL for such great customer service!

I received info about Dr Corneman from a family member that had surgery with him! After seeing 5 neurosurgeons in Kansas City who would only tell me there is something wrong but we won’t work on a prior fusion patient. I was frustrated. At my wits end. I was going on vacation in Colorado and thought “what the heck, let’s see if he takes my insurance and can see me”? I was able to get in to see him on a Tuesday. His whole team is amazing. From his nurse, to the PA Eric!! Immediately after visiting with his nurse, then Eric for about an hour, then Dr. Corneman came in. He was very thorough in explaining what was the issue and what he thought needed to be done! On Thursday I had a diagnostic test done to make sure we were on the right track , and we were. Here it is the following Monday morning, and I already have surgery scheduled for the end of the month! Dr.Corneman and his team are amazing!! Hands down! Thank you thank you thank you!!

Spends the time to review and explain my spine issues and sent me for an injection with another Dr. from The Steadman Clinic Dr. Evans. My neck returned back to normal with no pain after the injection. I had previously had surgery on my neck and was thankful that he and his team took the time to provide with the best treatment. Dr. Corenman and his entire team was very professional and really cared about getting me back to my best health.

In my opinion, the best doc, PA’s, and nurses I’ve ever met. Dr. Corenman is the most thorough doctor I’ve seen. He and his PA spent a lot of time with me on every visit. If I ever had a question, the nurse, PA, or Dr. Corenman would email or call me back within hours. The entire office, including billing department were wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Corenman and the Steadman Clinic.

Dr. Corenman is a talented, expert, wonderful example of how a surgeon should provide care. His PA, Eric Strauch is as accomplished a clinician as would could hope to find - including and outperforming most physicians. I had an anterior cervical fusion performed. He and his staff explained the procedure, the rationale for doing it, the potential for complications, and set my expectations for every step along the way. All patients should experience this kind of great care every time.

I don't recall having ever had a physician take so much interest in explaining my spine issues in a manner I could understand, and also a surgeon who went the extra mile during every diagnostic appointment so that my eventual spine surgery with him would have a very high chance of success. I travel from many states away to see Dr. Corenman, and will continue to do so for follow ups. The staff at his office, as well as the Vail Valley Medical Center and The Steadman Clinic are outstanding.

Doc was excellent for my condition, a motorcycle accident, fracture. He fused two levels and removed a couple of discs. I have more mobility than I had post accident and no pain.
