Dr. Balturshot is the best of the best! I had severe scoliosis and chronic pain. He performed a lumbar fusion and now my back is straight, and I have no more pain. He has a brilliant mind, skilled surgical hands, and a kind heart.

Dr. Balturshot is a straight shooter. He helps you understand your options, risks and benefits. He is not one to rush you to surgery when conservative treatment should be tried first. When I did eventually go the surgery route I woke up pain free in the recovery room. Came recommended by other physicians and nurses.

I had a spinal fusion - rods/screws - part of the battle was the staples - once out felt better. My floor nurse for my inpatient stay was great. Dr. Balturshot is awesome. The office staff is very understanding, attentive and caring.

Dr. Balturshot is a standout guy and great doctor. Really listens to you. The only thing is that his office staff need to work on timeliness and organization. This day of my appointment the dr was an hour and a half behind but nobody received a call to arrive maybe 45 mins later. So the waiting room was full. I was given an order to have a procedure done and the medical assistant was about 2 weeks behind in putting that order in. It was just frustrating. But Dr. Balturshot is an amazing doctor.

My wife came to see him for relief of significant neck and shoulder pain. His advice was “to learn to live with it” given in a condensing and arrogant tone. He finally sighed that if he had to do surgery (which he did not want to do), it would be a complicated one that would take a full year of recovery. He is not a surgeon who empatizes with patient’s pain and suffering. He could benefit from sensitivity training to compliment his clinical skills.

Our family member needed immediate surgery for a severe back injury. Dr. Balturshot took our case after we transferred from another hospital and worked the surgery into the end of his day. It has now been 8 weeks since surgery and we are extremely pleased with the success and progress. We are thankful Dr. Balturshot took our case and for the successful surgery. Would highly recommend this doctor.

He will tell you like it is, whether you want to hear it or not! But he is a fantastic surgeon and is clear to see he is meticulous when it comes to his work and he expects nothing but perfection! I would recommend home with a billion stars! Hope I never need another surgery, but if I do...he will be the guy that I see when it comes to the spine!

I had back surgery and Dr. Balturshot did an excellent job. I was very scared to have fusion, but my confidence in him and his knowledge made me make the decision to go forward with his recommendation. The surgery and after care was excellent.
