Dr. Tyndall was more worried about what insurance would pay for and not what needed to be done. He could not say with 100 percent confidence that an "issue" on the right side of the patient's back was NOT related to the "issue" on the left side of patient. Due to the insurance company's refusal and the Doctor's refusal to inquire - the patient will have to have two surgeries instead of one.

Dr Tyndall came highly recommended to me. He is a kind, caring Doctor, who is very thorough In his treatment of your condition. I would highly recommend Dr. Tyndall for any and all issues you might have regarding back pain!!!
in Whiting, IN |
I suffered from chronic back pain for most of my adult life. I went in to see Dr Tyndall for a consultation. He recommended I try therapy first. I also tried steroid shots. When that didn't help we agreed that surgery would be the next step. In two months I feel better than I have in 10 years! Dr Tyndall is clearly concerned with making the best choices. His assistant Carrie made the whole process simple. They are a great team and efficient. It's the whole package!

    Dr. Tyndall says...

    Dr.Tyndall is considered one of the Midwest's premier Spine Surgeons. He completed his Orthopaedic Surgery training at Stanford University Medical Center and his Spine Surgery fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). He is very active in developing new and innovative spine surgery implants/device  especially for Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS) and Disc Regeneration Therapy (DRT). He is often called on to give lectures and teaching demonstrations about these new techniques.

    He is strong believer in non-operative treatments for most Spine conditions and a strong proponent of the exciting new fields of :

    • outpatient Spine Surgery by which the patient can have a procedure done in an outpatient setting and return home the same day. This development is made possible by advances in MIS and anesthesia techniques.
    • Disc regeneration therapy by which an injured painful disc can be restored therefore alleviating the patient's pain and avoiding more extensive treatment.
