Recently I had ACDF surgery on 3 levels of my neck. Dr Yee was my surgeon, I would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing this condition. He was straightforward, thorough and very kind, which is always a plus when you're in pain.

I was experiencing extreme pain in my lower back and right leg due to a disc herniation that had a nerve pinched. I went through physical therapy and chiropractor treatment for three months before deciding to have surgery. I was referred by clinic to Benton Franklin Orthopedic and met Dr. Yee. From the start he made me feel comfortable and made the whole process easy to understand. Coming out of surgery I felt instant relief and the recovery has gone really good. I can work & live my life again.

TEN + STARS!!! ?????????? Dr Yee is great, and I would highly recommend Dr. Yee to anyone asking. My husband has been in pain for 10 years with his back along with numbness and tingling in his legs. He had to have surgery through the stomach and a few day later his back. Everything was explained in great detail so we knew actually what to expect . Since the surgery he can stand up straight and the pain has gone. If I ever need surgery he is the first person I am calling.

I have been trying to find an orthopedic surgeon to perform a disc fusion in my neck. I am a smoker. I am always honest about that. I called Dr. Yee's office. I said I was a smoker and asked if he would be willing to look over my medical records and test results. I was told yes. I spent a month getting my information to him. I got a call to come in for a consultation. When I arrived it was blatantly obvious he never looked at my information before I arrived. Refused to operate because I smoke.
