Dr Dimitrov knows what he's doing; he has a very good reputation in the area that's well deserved. He did a craniotomy on me to get rid of hematomas pressing against the brain and that surgery was a complete success. I definitely would and do recommend him to my friends

I had severe stenosis of my lumbar vertebra. After several years of research and trying other options I asked Dr. Dimitrov to open the canals in my l3 l4 vertebra so my spinal cord was not longer pinched. The surgery worked well and I'm starting to see my leg strength come back. Dr. Dimitrov could have easily said, from the very beginning, let's do surgery but instead he had me try other options first. I really respect a doctor who doesn't automatically jump to surgery.

I had a very unpleasant experience with this DR. He basically told me that everything Doctors had told me for decades was not true. He belittled me and acted as if nothing I told him was true. He disagreed with the other Surgeon in the office in front of me. His Radiologist assistant was also very rude and shoved me several times and acted annoyed that I could not stand as straight as she wanted ( due to an injury. I never returned.

Excellent, dedicated, committed to do the best thing possible to resolve your back issues! I would highly recommend Dr. Dimitrov for kyphoplasty surgery. My L1 vertebra had a compression fracture of 50%, my pain was 24/7 and was disabled to a great degree. Dr. Dimitrov is a miracle surgeon who in the span of 45 minutes, cured me and I am free of pain. I would trust him with my life! He is kind, patient, thorough, focussed, so very talented!

Dr. Dimitrov did my back surgery two years ago. I had instant relief from pain. This was my second back surgery (first one was done by another doctor) and was done correctly. I have been pain free and living a good life since my surgery with Dr. Dimitrov. Would I recommend him? YES! I already have.I would see him again if ever I should have need of a fine surgeon.
