I had cervical surgery on several levels and because I had 2 completely pinched off nerves I lost the use of my left arm. I went to see Dr. Lusis for a two week check because of the loss of the use of my arm. He is the most compassionate, understanding Dr. I have ever delta with. He told me not to get discouraged it would come back and it did take a while but I have full range of motion and I am working on strength . I would highly recommend him to everyone.

I am 3 months post op for L4-L5 fusion and laminectomy and I'm feeling great! Dr. Lusis was very thorough in explaining the procedure and what to expect throughout the recovery process. He was also attentive to any questions or concerns that I had. Overall a very positive experience- I would highly recommend him!

In November, 2016, Dr. Lusis performed my back surgery. I am still recuperating, but healing well. I highly recommend Dr. Lusis. I found him to be very kind and caring. He gave me his full attention, to make sure I understood the needed surgery, explained the procedure, shared test results, and showed me on x-rays and model, the reason for the pain. Highly recommend Dr. Lusis.

I am a retired PT/ATC with back issues and MS. I can't say enough good about Dr Lusis. I found him to be extremely attentive and caring. Willing to listen instead of hustling you off to the next patient. Treats conservatively and not pushing surgery. He gets an A+

Dr. Lusis performed major back surgery on me on January 6, 2015. He thouroghly explained what he was going to do, the process he would use, and the recovery time. The day of surgery he was on time to start. the surgery took six hours. He came into my room after surgery that day to see how I was doing. He continued to stop in to see how I was doing. The one thing I really liked about him was that he explained what was going to happen and even had models to demonstrate the procedure.
