Dr. Flangas performed a L4-5 Laminectomy with Fusion October 26, 2020 at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center with great success. The Hospital stay was only three days and only three follow-up visits after surgery. Dr. Flangas and staff went above and beyond in the care of me.

As a professional athlete and a circus performer I was extremely scared to go through a spinal fusion and laminectomy. Dr. Flangas performed an amazing surgery and brought me basically " back to life". The quality of the surgery and care is outstanding. I definitely recommend Dr. Flangas to my family, friends and colleagues who end up in this difficult health situation.

I am 43 and was having neck pain and intermittent numbness in my hands I had an MRI done to find out I had severe issues with the c3 to c7 cervical spine. I was also suffering from spinal cord compression. I searched long and hard for a doc I could trust and Flangas was recommended highly. I called he looked at my scans and got me right in. He explained EVERYTHING. He took the time to sit with me and answer every question I had. I was also concerned because I knew the surgery would involve moving my vocal cord and I am a singer. He explained he had operated on several other professional singers who in time did get their voices back. I agreed to do the surgery and the day after I felt 100% better! No more pain or numbness at all!! And my scar? Ha you can barely notice it! He is truly amazing and gifted. And I got my voice back after 5 months. So trust me you need spine or neck surgery he is your man.

Dr Flangas performed a 3 level laminectomies for 3 herniations in my low back. After another doctor (ortho) wanted to fuse 3 discs together. That was not an option I wanted done. I wanted a neurosurgeon only to fix my back after steroid injections and oral steroids with physical therapy didn't fix my back pain. Not even (norco 10/325) helped. I thought I would not be able to return to work. Dr Flangas was able to do my surgery 4 days after my appointment. 8 weeks after surgery I was able to return to work. After surgery you will be sore but the pain is not as bad as a herniated disc causes. Dr Flangas gave me my life back and I am able to provide for my family again.

Dr. Flangas did my cervical spine fusion in Feb. 2020 it is now June 2020 and I am 100% my old self. He did everything he said he would do for me. I had never had a surgery in my 59 years of life and was worried about this one. He assured me it would be ok and I would be back to my old self in no time. He wasn't lying. What a great Surgeon and good person this guy is.

In October of 2019 I had a four level fusion through the front of the neck spinal fusion and my neck is now brand new. No voice problems at all - recovery was not fun but what a difference it made in my quality of life - the staff behind the doctor is just as amazing - they kept everything rolling and helped with appointments and work notifications! Thank you Dr Flanges - your skills are superior - and thanks to Natalie and the staff too.

Dr. Flangas performed a Anterior (front entry) Cervical Discectomy & Fusion on me on 12/30/2019. I am a 61 yr old Airline Captain and by nature am an extremely meticulous individual. In my profession, things are done right, period! I obtained a 2nd opinion at the Barrow Institute in Phoenix from a world renown neurosurgeon, his comments were EXACTLY the same as Dr. Flangas. I then commenced a lengthly background check, including opinions from MANY surgeons, OR nurses and OR PA's. (People that see this stuff from the inside out daily), along with past patients. CONCLUSION: EVERY SINGLE PERSON I talked to said the same thing...Your dealing with the absolute top Neurosurgeon in Las Vegas, "they don't get any better". Two separate Heart Surgeons and an OR Nurse said "he did my surgery". If they trust him, thats good enough for me! RESULTS: He's a passionate perfectionist and a performed a FLAWLESS surgery on my spinal cord. If you're like me & want the absolute best, your search is over!

Dr Flangas just did my ACDF on December 18, 2019. It's been week and all is good. I will go back on January 2, 2020 for my first follow up.i feel so much better since surgery. The hardest thing to adjust to is the collar that must be worn after surgery. I would recommend Dr Flangas to any one needing the surgery. If you have questions I would be glad to answer anything I can. (440) 669-6893. My name is Chuck Snyder

I had a fractured T12 vertebrae and required a Spinal fusion of my T11, T12 and L1. My legs were numb, I was in a lot of pain and was in danger of paralysis if I didn’t have my injury repaired. I consulted with several surgeons before choosing Dr. Flangas. The nurses who work with him at the hospital have high respect for him and the work he performs. He is extremely professional and prepared when you consult with him, he does not rush you at all. I went home 3 days after surgery. My recovery was very smooth and I was able to return to work after 6 weeks. It took about 8 months for me to regain my full strength. A year after surgery, I am back to normal activity and have no pain at all. Dr. Flanges is truly a brilliant surgeon and a caring doctor. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Flangus turned my life around!!! I was suffering from a herniated disc L3/L4 and was in so much pain that I was not able to function as normal. After the surgery I had instant relief from the pain. Dr. Flangas is excellent and what he does and very honest with his patients. He also sets realistic expectations of the outcome of the surgery. Dr. Flangas Staff was also amazing. They treated me like family and I cannot say enough about them. They all were patient and understanding of my needs. It takes a Great team to put together a successful office and I believe they have done it and deserve 5 Gold Stars. Thanks everyone.

Long overdue review. I saw Dr Flangas in March 2018 about having a 6mm x 6mm tumor removed from my pituitary gland which was causing a disease called Cushings Disease. His staff is absolutely amazing! When I meet Dr Flangas I was immediately put to ease. He’s calming nature and thorough explanation of the surgery I knew I was in great hands. May 2018 had a completely successful surgery. I’m so glad I found Dr Flangas. He is the best, only one I’d trust for this surgery and gave me my life back.
