Dr. Tindal will not be worried about your health! He's all about supporting the best interest of companies when it comes to workman's compensation. So I don't trust him for any type of service.

I have been seeing Dr. Tyndall for almost 8 years. I am very grateful to him for fixing me up. He has done 2 surgeries on me.

Went to other specialists and was told I had degenerative disc disease, but there was nothing they could do for me. Several years later I saw Dr. Tyndall, and got the same diagnosis, but a much more positive prognosis. I had an L5/S1 lumbar fusion 2 weeks ago. Hours after surgery I was able to stand longer and walk farther than I've been able to in years. Dr. Tyndall is awesome, as is his staff, especially Carrie who is always willing to answer all my questions.

I had a great outcome with my father's back surgery and then I also had a great outcome with my back surgery. In February of 2017. I'm so grateful to have such a great Dr. Thank you for all your work. Karen Livesay Brandt.

Dr. Tyndall and his staff are wonderful, carIng, and professional people. I first went to see Dr.Tyndall 11 years ago for two herniated discs in my lower back. After surgery I healed and resumed my life, I was so very pleased. Dr. Tyndall operated on me last week for a much more extensive surgery and I'm healing well. I would recommend Dr. Tyndall to anyone with back pain. Excellent doctor and staff (his assistance is a terrific lady) that includes front desk personnel too.

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.

Dr. Tyndall says...

My practice offers the latest and most advanced treatments which allow most patients to be treated in an outpatient setting. These including:

Disc replacement
