Greenwood, MO |
I had surgery for 2 very painful ruptured discs and am now pain free! Very thankful for the excellent care provided by Dr. Blatt and staff.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.
Overland Park, KS |
Over 10 years, I have twice had surgery performed by Dr Blatt. I have frequently recommended him to friends in need of a surgical evaluation. Dr Blatt and his team are caring, talented professionals who gave me the time I neeeded both in the operating room, the office and on the phone. They are the best.
in Lake Quivira, KS |
I experienced a complicated back surgical procedure by Dr. Blatt. The procedure was a bilateral L3-L4 neurolysis with extensive decompression; L2, L3, L4, L5 and S1 laminectomies with foraminotomies; L5-S1 posterior lumbar inter body fusion w bone graft; and variLift cages; L2-L5 posterolateral fusion with bone graft and segmental instrumentation. Needless to say, I am extremely grateful to Dr. Blatt to regain my ability to be able to walk up a flight of steps. He is an unsurpassed surgeon
Overland Park, KS |
Dr. Blatt performed a cervical disk replacement on me. Prior to surgery at my initial visit with the DR. I found him extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He carefully explained my options to me and assisted me with making my decisions. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends
Olathe, KS |
At the age of 27, Dr. Blatt performed a spinal fusion to my lower spine following a car accident. I could not be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Blatt. He was a wonderful, knowledgable doctor and easy to work with. He treated me with such personal care and the surgery and recovery could not have gone better. I give Dr. Blatt my absolute highest recommendation!
in Olathe |
I just think Dr.Blatt is the best. We talked about what was going on with my neck. How I was terrified to have surgery a forth time. The second and third surgery were horrible. He did NOT do either of those surgeries. He did the forth surgery and out come was wonderful.
