Absolutely fantastic neurosurgeon and person ... he helped cure the pain in my back and leg, kept me informed of what was going to happen (before, during and after), eased my concern about surgery and fixed me ... what more can you ask for ... and his PA Nicole Nelson was extremely competent and kind.

I can't say enough good comments about Dr. Sipos. I needed emergency surgery and Dr. Sipos took the lead. His excellent care began before my surgery and continues to this day. He answered all of my questions and his staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My follow up appointments were easy to schedule and he was available when I needed to see him. I highly recommend Dr. Sipos.

I am always skeptical about dealing with surgeons because I have found that they often do not listen and only focus on their specialty. As an individual with an underlying autoimmune syndrome I need surgeons who will think systemically and develop a treatment plan that takes account of multiple issues. How wonderful it was to meet Dr. Sipos and discover that he was a superb diagnostician as well as a talented surgeon, consummate professional and educator.

Dr. Sipos was amazing. My wife had a ruptured brain aneurysm and Dr. Sipos performed the surgical clipping of the aneurysm. He was attentive, kind, calm, and just all around an amazing dr. Would recommend him to anyone.

Dr Sipos performed a spinal fusion on me (four years ago) and my pain was instantly gone. Dr Sipos IS an excellent M.D. with a kind bedside manner.

I had L2 to S1 fusion with instrumentation surgery on July 6 of 2015. I was in surgery for 8.5 hours and the hospital for 3 days. My total experience with Dr. Sipos and his staff was excellent. I had seen him for a year before the surgery trying to help with my sciatic pain without surgery. A point came when surgery was the last resort. I had so much pain in my lower left leg that I could not walk 20 ft. I could not live like that. Now 6 months later I am pain free.
