Great!! Dr. Nomoto gave me my life back. I was doomed- doomed to retire early and be miserable. I was so happy to be scheduled for surgery and I have not been let down- hardly. Dr. Nomoto took away the deep seated pain that bugged the heck out of me. He is a gentlemen and his VERY honest and kind.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Nomoto without hesitation. He is not only an excellent Surgeon to say the least but his bed side manner and personal attention and caring towards his patients is outstanding. I had Fusion surgery about 6 weeks ago and the whole time was confident I made the right choice. Forever grateful.

I had my consultation with Dr. Nomoto today after having been recommended to another well-rated surgeon about 3 weeks ago. That first doctor had concluded at the end of his exam that I should move ahead and schedule surgery to correct the degenerative disc issues revealed in both my CT scan and an x-ray. Dr. Nomoto's recommendation was quite the opposite. He took a conservative and measured approach to the pain I described and suggested that pain management via injections could provide a good deal of relief with monitoring at intervals to determine if it was successful. What a difference in opinion!! I have complete confidence in Dr. Nomoto's medical conclusion and will now entrust my spine health to him. I'm in good hands.

I was referred to Dr. Nomoto because I had Bertolotti’s Syndrome. Feeling that back surgery should not be taken lightly I had a second opinion. I was referred back to Dr. Nomoto, haha, as being a pillar in the medical field and in good hands. I was, surgery was painless and recovered extremely fast. Today I barely feel the tingling in my feet and am back to working out again. Thank you Dr. Nomoto for being an A+ Surgeon.

Dr. Nomoto is without a doubt one of the greatest doctors and surgeons I have ever met with/been treated by. I had an ACDR surgery with him after meeting with 4 different surgeons and I could not have made a better decision. He is extremely thorough in informing you what is going to happen before your procedure and what to expect afterwards. His bedside manner is second to none and takes the time to answer any question you might have no matter how dumb it might seem. Thank you so much Dr Nomoto!

I highly recommend Dr. Nomoto for his highly professional ethics and proceedures. I have had three spinal surgeries before I came to Dr. Nomoto. When I came to him I had spinal stenosis and ruptured discs in my spine. I had a consultation with Dr. Nomoto where he took his time to explain step by step what my condition was and showed me in my X-Rays the locations where I was having my problems. He then explained what he would do during surgery to correct my problem. Great Job Dr. Nomoto!

Dr Nomoto has an efficient and friendly office! Everything from the first visit to the continued after care has been the best experience. The surgical out come has been better than antipated. My husband awoke without the pain he had been suffering from for 20 years. Thank you all. Shout out to the staff especially Eunice and Susan who worked with us extensively to make this a very easy and pleasant experience.

I went to Dr. Nomoto for a second opinion based on positive national health ratings. I had been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis in the lower back and injections were not helping. He confirmed the Spinal Stenosis but he also had x-rays taken of my back while I was standing up which showed a vertebrae that was slipping in and out. He recommended cleaning up the Spinal Stenosis but also installing a Coflex which stabilized the vertebrae. Two weeks later I was walking a mile a day.

I had spinal scoliosis that caused almost constant back pain and spasms. In addition, my rib cage would soon be bending so much that it would hit the pelvis requiring ribs to be shortened. Dr. Nomoto performed a complex 12 hour surgery and fused me from pelvis to L9. There were also bolts and rod. Everything went well. From the beginning there was no more back pain. With therapy, I now can walk long distances, stand almost 2 inches taller than I did before surgery. He was the right Doctor.
