i would recommend Dr Buttermann to family and friends. I started seeing him after my daughter had to have a fusion of three vertebrate in her back. Her surgery was a major success. I just had my third fusion in my back. He was detailed in alternative treatments to insure that fusion was a last resort.

I have had several spinal fusion surgeries over the years with Dr.Buttermann , all as planned and all successful. I find him to be very thorough and I always leave with a plan and options in mind and when I leave, he's already implementing the next steps (MRI,PT, etc). He has always answered all of our (my wife's too) questions and has shown us the xrays and MRI's and pointed out how things are and how things should be. I believe he is at the top with his expertise and would certainly recommend.

I feel that Dr. Buttermann is highly skilled and knowledgeable in his field of expertise. I had back surgery one year ago, that I had put off for ten years. I am now 95%-100% pain free.. If you are looking for someone with a warm and fuzzy bedside manner, you better move on, Dr. Buttermann is probably not your guy. He is precise, matter-of-fact and let's get down to business. However, if you are looking for someone who cares whether or not your surgery is successful, give him a try.
