When I was referred to Dr. Erich Anderer I was told that he does not do unnecessary surgery, and was further encouraged when I read his many positive reviews and when I read about his research and interest in spinal health and yoga. Dr. Anderer is professional and kind, and able to discuss surgery using lay terminology. Dr. Anderer and his staff and the hospital staff were always approachable and helpful. I went home two days after surgery, and had recovered enough to return to work just over two weeks later. I can recommend Dr. Anderer with great confidence.

In 2019 an MRI confirmed I had a herniated disc (C5/C6) & a pinched nerve in my lower neck. I tried pain management; three epidurals & intense PT but nothing seemed to work. So I finally decided to explore surgery & luckily found Dr. Erich Anderer. During the initial consult, he was extremely thorough & spoke in layman’s terms, which was very helpful. Dr. Anderer took the time to listen & address my questions & concerns regarding surgery. My biggest fear was that fusion would limit my movement but Dr. Anderer assured me that I would not lose any mobility. After meeting with Dr. Anderer, I was so impressed by his knowledge, professionalism, & confidence that I booked my surgery for the next available date. On Monday, 11/30, Dr. Anderer performed an anterior cervical discectomy with fusion & instrumentation. The surgery was a complete success. I am now four weeks post op & I feel like a new person. I’m so glad that I did my research & found Dr. Anderer. He is truly one of a kind.

I went to see Dr. Anderer for herniated disc between C-5 and C-6. For two years prior I had done physical therapy, cortisone shots, cervical traction etc. nothing helped. Being nervous to do a surgery I went to meet with Dr. Anderer. Right from the beginning he made me feel comfortable and explained all my options very clearly, with me ultimately going with a disc replacement. I could not have felt more confident and in safe hands than with Dr. Anderer and his staff including Alexa Maestrone the NP at the office, they were remarkably welcoming and helpful before and after the surgery which they scheduled in a very timely manner. The pain that would travel down my arm was gone almost instantly after the surgery was complete. Already recommended him and will continue to do so in the future.

I was referred to Dr. Anderer after an MRI identified a spinal tumor that explained why I was losing my ability to walk. Dr Anderer office arranged a visit right away after my tumor was identified. Dr. Anderer was honest and direct that surgery was the best course of action as soon as possible to avoid potential long term permanent disability. I am a man in 40s who had gone from walking without device to fear to ambulate w/o a wheelchair in a few months. Dr Anderer let it be known that this was my decision so I did not feel pressured into an operation that was my first one ever. I trusted his diagnosis, appreciated his candor and ultimately his expertise in completing this necessary operation right away. The Hospital and than rehab staff were wonderful. NYU Langone was the way to go and Dr Anderer's expertise and skill was the cure for what ailed me. I am just beginning my post hospital/rehab recovery but I thank Dr Anderer and his staff with getting me literally back on my feet!

Dr. Anderer did microdiscetomy surgery for my L4-L5 disc on mine lower back. So I am 6 months post op. I feel great. My recovery was okay, but I was going through bad days. That's completely normal. When I am all day on my feet or I work a little more I get some pain in my leg, but can't compare that with pain before. Now is much much less. After this surgery is very important how you recover. Listen to your body and it will tell you how much you can do. I am so so happy that Dr. Anderer was my doctor and I am noticing big difference day by day. Back is very delicate, but with good recovery and positive mind you can feel better. Thank you Dr. Anderer. I want to highly recommend this doctor! ??

Dr. Anderer operated on my cervical spine, putting hardware & doing a fusion. I was almost paralyzed before surgery, I have full use of both arms/hands now. I believe I've needed Lumbar surgery since last July, but had to cancel appt as my Mom died. Than I got pneumonia three times since Oct. and if I need to go to the ER from Staten Island (as I can barely walk now) I'd do it just to be sure I'm under his care. I hope to see him asap after Labor Day. I'd follow him anywhere (I live in Staten Island) for the excellent professional, patient, honest, courtesy I experienced with him.

Dr. Anderer reviewed my history and offered two plans of action to address the damage to my lower back. With his calm and professional demeanor I knew I was in good hands. From Dr. Anderer's senior staff I met Donna who was the second point of contact to initiate my case to all that I would need for pre-op, date of surgery, forms, etc. She was charming, knowledgable, and followed up on my calls/emails. I experienced the very same level of elite professional service from Angelica who was my initial contact. I am of the opinion that Dr. Anderer sets the bar of excellence in the field of practicing medicine. Most notabley Neurosurgery and his amazing surgery team! I am a firm believer that greatness stems from the top and stands as a barometer for par excellence. Dr. Anderer comes highly reccomended. He stands as a fine and outstanding ambassador of outstanding medical care. NYU Langone should provide him and his staff with all due consideration!

Dr Anderer was the surgeon for my L5-S1 Microdiscectomy. He was patient, explained everything thoroughly and made me feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process. I can't express enough gratitude for his professionalism, and would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with similar issues.

Dr. Anderer performed an L5S1 microdiscectomy on me 2 weeks ago. Both he and his team were informative, incredibly nice and caring and I'm so grateful for that. I can't imagine a better experience with a surgeon. He didn't rush me to surgery and when it became apparent that I needed it, he made it as easy as possible. I almost immediately felt better. I highly recommend Dr. Anderer!

Dr.Anderer recently performed my surgery and I am so happy to say it went perfectly, and I am finally pain free. In fact I was pain free starting from the moment I woke up from anesthesia. Hands down, absolutely the best medical experience ever, from the first consultation appointment to seeing him after surgery. He is an excellent doctor who was highly recommended. I truly feel so lucky, blesses and beyond grateful that he was my surgeon.

It was a pleasure to have Dr. Anderer perform our daughter’s surgery. He knew I had multiple questions and I was more anxious than our daughter, but he professionally provided information that calmed my fears. His confidence in his ability to perform the surgery gave my husband and I reassurance that everything would be perfectly fine. We were confident enough that we headed back home to Houston after 3 days. He has given me confidence in practitioners outside of the Houston’s Medical Center.

Dr. Anderer is the best doctor, let alone neurosurgeon, hands down! I went to go see multiple specialists after a ski accident left me with numbness and loss of feeling in arm/hand. Dr. A. looked at the MRI and saw what others had missed, a bone fragment impeding my nerve canal in my C6/7 vertebrae. He gave me multiple options and agreed to move forward with surgery a week later. Immediately after surgery, numbness gone and full feeling regained! I would recommend Dr. A. to anyone.

Great surgeon! Dr. Anderer knows his stuff and is very friendly and informative. For two years I suffered with cervical myelopathy which previous neurologist failed to tell me I had. He perform surgery on me March 19th with hardly no pain and two weeks later I'm feeling great and the tiredness in my legs is gone. This is the guy is you go to if you need spinal surgery he is by far the best. I love him!

Visiting Dr. Anderer and letting him treat my disc herniation was the best decision I could have made. Many believed I wouldn't return to my normal way of life but that has changed thanks to the amazing work of Dr. Anderer. I am two weeks post OP and feel like my life has returned to what it was prior to the herniation. I highly recommend Dr. Anderer!
