This man has given me my life back TWICE. I feel blessed everyday that we found him. My first surgery was when I was 17. No one wants to do a major back surgery on a kid but it was hugely successful and I went on to have 3 children, run in half marathons and complete a Tough Mudder. It had been noted in the first surgery that the disc above was not great. We thought we had 10 years on it-I got 24. My last surgery was 4 months ago and I feel amazing! Working out and enjoying life again!

Enjoyed our visits. He exhausted all options before opting to surgery. On the negative side, i do wish we would have done the surgeries sooner than we did. The surgeries did help out considerably, i am in pain still , but it's considerably better.
in Windsor, CO |
I contacted Dr. Jeffery Donner concerning an occasional minor pain ( pain level 1/10) near my spine. After reviewing a MRI, he told me he should perform a verebroplasty procedure on vertebrae T8 and T9. This is where a cement like substance is injected into the vertebrae. I had the procedure on August 5, 2016. Several weeks after the procedure, the pain level increase to 5/10 and it greatly affected my mobility. It took about 3 months for the effect of the procedure to go away. Was it neccessary

in Greeley, CO |
Both my wife and I have been treated by Dr. Donner. I had neck surgery, and she has been evaluated for back pain and referred to a pain management clinic. We couldn't be more pleased with the attitude and treatment received each time we visit. It is evident that Dr. Donner's care and concern are reflected throughout everyone in his employ...they are all efficient and courteous and make it a pleasure visiting their offices.

in Guernsey, WY |
I would recommend Dr. Conner. He was very concerned as to why I was having so much pain. He tried injections when the pain didn't subside he recommended surgery after the surgery the pain was much better and 6 months later pain mostly gone unless I do things that irritate it like vacuuming I had my SI joint fused
in Fort Collins, CO |
I was referred to Dr Donner for SI joint pain 18 months ago. He spent many uncompensated hours helping obtain my surgery approval. Recovery went well and follow-ups were thorough. My quality of life has improved. I'm back at work and able to sleep through the night without pain. The referral to Dr. Donner saved my life. He is a kind, caring man and an expert in his field who spends a great deal of time researching methods to improve the lives of his patients. I am thankful for him and his staff
in Greeley , CO |
Doctor Donner has done two surgeries on my wife. One onthe back and one on her neck. Both times he has thoroughly walked US through the process. We have great praise for Doctor Donner. Not only has my wife almost no pain but iit has reduced her dependence on me.
in Greeley, CO |
Dr. Donners, knowledge and skill more than met out expectations. He is caring and highly qualified. After having surgery I have experienced little to no pain. I am highly satisfied with the out come. I would recommend Dr. Donner to anyone that is having issues with their back. Robert Bishop
in Milliken, CO |
I had back surgery with Dr Donner in October of 2003. I have been doing great since then. I was talking about my back surgery to my co workers and had a patient over hear what was said about Dr. Donner. She began asking questions and I told her that I would recommend Dr. Donner to any one who needed back surgery.
