The Best Surgeon
I have consulted with Dr Oberlander for a while about big issues with my neck. I had 2 whiplashes over the years that resulted in disc degradation, bone spurs and arthritis. He advised it was extensive and was cautious about doing a surgery. He advised he wanted to review the results of the pain injection before considering surgery. He encouraged me to try injections which I did and that gave some relief. I was just fearful about undergoing replacing 3 discs and a fusion. I finally reached the point I was in constant misery and agreed to the surgery. I did the surgery at Cypress Pointe Hospital in Hammond. This was the easiest surgery I have ever had. I had great care at the hospital and within 2 weeks the incision was healed. I have experienced minimal discomfort from the surgery. Further, I have experienced relief from the constant aching. I wish I would have done the surgery a long time ago. Have full confidence in Dr. Oberlander, it's deserved, he is a truly gifted surgeon.

Top surgeon in his field!
This man saved my son. My son had a previous surgery with a horrible Dr. No Dr.’s would see my son. Everyone said he had to go back to the Dr. Who did his surgery. That Dr. Now only takes cash and refused to see him. We found Dr. Oberlander who wasn’t afraid to repair what he could. He told us what to expect. He couldn’t be completely fixed. It’s been a little over a year since Dr. Oberlander did his back surgery and it was a success!! My son will never be able to work again, but, Dr. Oberlander made his life bearable. The pain my son was in before Dr. Oberlander did his recent surgery was very bad. It broke my broke my heart to see him that way. Thanks Dr. Oberlander for giving my son his life back!! You’re the best!!!!
