I can't say enough about his passion and energy. It is truly contagious being in his presence. He is compassionate and understanding and I feel at ease knowing he will do all he can to make my mom better. I have visited other surgeons and he has the technical reputation and bed-side manner I have not witnessed in them. We have decided to let him operate on my mom as I know he would treat her like his own.

Fantastic Spine Surgeon! He is so kind and patient with his staff and with family members. He explained my medical problems to me very clearly reassuring me. I benefitted from conservative treatment. Terrific physician!
in Woodstock, IL |
Very rude and unprofessional behavior. He is super condescending to his patients, and is far worse to his employees. With the thin walls you can hear him swearing and berating his employees. This makes it a very uncomfortable experience. One of the worst Doctors I have ever had the misfortune of seeing. He is also very bad at keeping appointment times.

Dr. Brebach worked on every conservative approach to pain relief before we decided, several years in, that it was time for a fusion of my C-Spine. His excellent track record and experience made me confident that her was the right surgeon for this complex multilevel procedure. Tracy, his nurse, was extremely helpful as well. A year later, I have healed beautifully! Thank you Dr. B!

Really cares about his patients. Listens well and always has a good plan at the end of the visit. Honest about everything, works to get you in your best health. Upbeat personality at all times, makes you feel good . Spends time with the family ensuring everyone is on the same page.
Dr. Brebach genuinely cares about his patients. I cannot stress that enough! He took the time to explain pros and cons of my options. Since I had been having problems for years, we decided surgery was the best option. At 6 weeks post-op, I'm feeling great and will be going back to work. Highly recommended for back problems!

Dr. Brebach's Care Philosophy

I treat a variety of spine ailments including herniated and protruding discs, slipped discs (spondylolisthesis), arthritis (spondylosis and stenosis), and scoliosis. The great majority of my patients successfully respond to conservative therapies (ranging from physical therapy, activity modification, and anti-inflammatories to epidural steroid injections). If these do not succeed, a variety of minimally invasive procedures may be recommended to directly address the problem. I strongly believe in taking the time to get to know my patients prior to making any surgical recommendations. When surgery is neccessary, my success rate is extremely favorable, upwards of 80-95% in even the most difficult of cases. The percentage of favorable outcomes is even higher in more straight forward cases such as lumbar and cervical herniated discs.
