I had a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) Back Surgery. It was the best decision I ever made, I have no pain now. The doctor was very professional, and if I ever needed surgery again, I would use him!

I had a bad spinal problem due to chronic scoliosis, from birth. It required a very difficult surgery, and Dr. Oberlander did a fantastic and heroic job. I would highly recommend him for any complex spinal surgery required. He is a true lifesaver. Fred Guimond

I saw Dr. Oberlander 2 years ago and he sent me to his pain management doctor. He told me to come back when all other options were done. I came back when nothing else would work. I woke up from surgery pain free. I didn't realize how bad I was hurting before the surgery. It's been 6 months and...more

Thanks is never enough to tell the staff as well as the physicians who helped me through the process of having multiple disc fusions. It was a complete success and although I am still in the care only has been just over two weeks I feel completely healed.

I would highly recommend Dr Oberlander. Before my back surgery I was in pain most of the day and had to limit my activities. Now- after the surgery all of my pain is gone and I have no pain. My surgery was a great success.
