Dr. Belanger performed a Laminectomy due to a herniated disc in my lower back. I could hardly walk and had tried a cortisone shot with no relief. My first consultation with the doctor to review my MRI and other medical records he said he can fix it. He’s not a man of many words but he tells it like it is and I like that. They ran what they were goi g to do to me through my insurance company and they approved it. Within 2 weeks I had the procedure which is minimal invasive surgery although I was intubated, when I woke they made sure I could urinate before I could leave and I walked out of there feeling better then i have in the last 28 years. It’s going on 4 months and my back is still feeling awesome. He has a physician’s Assistant that’s really nice and super hot who helps the doctors with your follow up appointments. She makes it a lot more enjoyable to go to the doctors office.

I had a neck fusion with Dr. Belanger about 8 years ago and everything went great. With that success I needed my back fused. I had my operation with Dr. Belanger and things didn't go right. I had muscle spasms that were bad from the very beginning after surgery. I complained about them every appointment with no concern from Belanger. The spasms started to get worse and so I went in for another CT to see what the problem was. When I went to Dr. Belanger for the results all I got from him was that his surgery went well and that there was nothing he could do for me. Then told me to come back after it's been a year. This totally blew my mind. I started to consult other doctors to try and figure out what was wrong. I finally had one that told me to get with a PT that specializes in back injuries and pain management. I got with pain management and finally started to get some answers. This was without no help from Dr. Belanger. I could go on with other horror stories but I am out of room.

I had 2 severely herniated discs and one mild that left me in constant pain before surgery. I had an awesome experience throughout the whole process of before and after my spinal discectomy and fusion. Dr. Balanger is super attentive and takes the time I need to answer questions and all. My mother was so impressed with him that she may come from New York where she lives to have her back surgery if needed.

Ruptured my C5C6 disk, pain was excruciating and continuous. My plans and life ambitions were fleeing. First, Dr Belanger restored my hope. Within a couple months, he had restored my health. It's been six years now with ZERO problems. I thank God for Dr Belanger.

Dr. Belanger has done neck surgery on myself and will be doing lower back surgery on my daughter. We are very pleased with his work. Also Dr. Belanger and his staff are very helpful and friendly. They are the best group of medical people I have dealt with in the Minot and Bismarck area.
