Dr. Tyndall, the nurses, and the rest of the staff have always been courteous, helpful, and caring every time I see them at my appointments. I recently had lower back surgery (Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion) on November 12, 2020 (almost 3 weeks ago). Dr. Tyndall, the nurses, and the anesthesiologist explained everything to me to make sure that I had understood everything. They answered all of my questions regarding the surgery, what medication was going to be given to me prior to my surgery, and they made me feel comfortable and calm. My surgery went well. I initially had some pain and stiffness after surgery (as expected) but I don't have the nerve pain that I felt in my legs and the pain that radiated across my lower back. My incision healed and I feel a difference already. It's important to do your research to find an experienced surgeon and I recommend Dr. Tyndall to help relieve your back pain.

Outstanding! X-rays and an MRI were taken right in his office. It was determined that I needed surgery to fix the problem in my neck. I was scheduled 2 weeks later. Everything went perfectly ( I had a fusion on C 2&3 and C 3&4). Dr.Tyndall explained to my understanding exactly what was going to happen. His care for me was exceptional and I would highly recommend Dr. Tyndall. I felt safe and confident that he was doing the right thing.

Dr. Tyndall was very personable and took the time to explain what was going on with me, and allowed me to come to the decision about surgery. He was very concise in explaining the procedure. He knew I was kind of scared about back surgery and was ok with me choosing Physical therapy rehab to see if this would resolve my situation and didn't try and sell me on surgery. He the staff at OSNI our very nice and empathetic. When your hurting you look for somewhere that is empathetic and professional (Tamara). Thank You

One of a kind doctor. He actually listens and cares. After suffering for 2 1/2 years of unimaginable pain, many failed procedures, & tons of doctors that let me down, he was the first & only doctor to thoroughly explain what I was going through & helped find a solution. Not only did he make me feel comfortable with getting the cervical disc replacement surgery but he made sure my husband understood & was on board with everything that he planned for me. I’m a month & a half post op & I haven’t felt this good in so long. I still have a long way to go but I’m no where near where I used to be. I’m beyond thankful for him!

I had compressed nerves at L3 and L4 that caused significant sciatica pain for over 15 years. After xrays and MRI, Dr Tyndall is the first Doctor to really explain what was causing my pain and how to eliminate it. He performed minimally invasive surgery and I am completely pain free. He was recommended by my primary care doctor who told me that if he needed surgery, Dr Tyndall is who he would go to. Dr Tyndall's nurse, Carrie, went up and beyond to make sure every thing from my first visit to my surgery went perfectly. I would recommend this doctor to everyone.

A year of pain, procedures and therapy that did not work ended the day I went to Dr Tyndall. He diagnosed my issue and had it surgically repaired in less than 2 weeks . His explanations are concise but thorough. His staff is exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and professional. An extra thank you to Carrie!

Dr. Dwight Tyndall is the BEST orthopedic surgeon on the planet! He is always concerned about your overall health and gives the best care ever. His bedside manner is beyond exceptional. You always feel comfortable with him and you know you are receiving excellent treatment. I had back problems for over 5 years and not one doctor could help me until I met him. After one visit, I knew I would finally have the relief I was looking for. His nurse Carrie is wonderful and very attentive as well!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Tyndall and nurse Carrie. After having back pain which was unrelieved by pain management, I was very skeptical that my pain could ever be relieved. Dr. Tyndall saw me promptly, reviewed my films, and explained my care plan in language I could understand. I had surgery and was back to work in a few weeks. I am so happy that Dr. Tyndall performed my surgery. I have been pain-free ever since. I highly recommend Dr. Tyndall to anyone wanting quality care.

Dr. Tyndall, Nurse Carrie and NP Tamara Lee are the most compassionate, knowledgeable and helpful medical professionals I’ve ever met. I highly recommend their services! I was experiencing excruciating pain as a result of a herniated disc. Not only did they listen to me, they did everything they could to help me, including performing a MUCH NEEDED urgent surgery to fix my back problems, on Christmas Eve! Although I am still in the recovery process I feel 100% better. I am forever thankful!
