Dr Dietze ruined my brothers life. He has had nothing but pain and suffering since his surgery. Dr Dietze wasn’t even available during his post op checks.

AMAZING NEUROSURGEON! Dr. Dietze performed a cervical implant with a 1-stage fusion AND a lumbar implant with a 2-stage implant. He has the BEST bed-side Manor! I wouldn't trust my back problems with any other doctor!

Dr Dietz completed my Lumbar/Fusion on 5/8/2017 And my Cervical Open Door Laminectomy on 10/10/2017. I truly appreciate the way he explains everything, draws it out until you fully understand. Dr Dietz and his staff are very attentive!

Dr. Dietz is an amazing surgeon with excellent communication. The new procedure he did to repair a herniated disc in my back that was causing me excruciating pain down my leg gave me immediate and long lasting results. I'm so thankful to be enjoying a pain-free life again.
