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.

He is truly a gentleman. His patient interaction along with his bedside manner, places him far above his colleagues. Dr. Balturshot treated me for spinal procedure.

This man changed my life. I was 26 very over weight and to the point of not being able to walk in walmart because of my back. I was in no pain after the surgery and he made sure of that. Three days later I was walking around lIke nothing even happen. I was so scared to have the surgery but it was the best deicision of my life. He also scared me straight and told me that if I didn't lose weight I would be seeing him again and it would be worse. It's been a year and I've lost 100 pounds. 3
