I went to Dr. Schroeder in hopes he would be able to help the terrible sciatic pain I had down my entire leg (to my toes) due to a herniated disc. I was seeing another physician in the Rothman offices, but she was taking a more conservative approach (steroid injections every 4-6 months for 2 years). My first appointment with him made me feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed in my decision to have surgery. I was in such pain the office, despite being on a double dose of painkillers, he actually accommodated my surgery 2 weeks following that appointment- even though he was booked until January. During surgery day, I was ready, but super anxious- which he saw. He ensured me it would be fine. I am officially 10 weeks post-op, and it’s been a complete life-changing surgery. I can plan my wedding, do household tasks, WALK (huge!), go to the gym, and enjoy life without having to lay down constantly or be on painkillers to control the nerve pain. I’m so excited for this new lease on life.

Dr. Schroeder performed an Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion on me for C4 - C6 at Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. I went to my consultation with an MRI and Dr. Schroeder gave me a thorough explanation as to why surgery was my best course of action. His demeanor was calm and competent, I scheduled my surgery within 15 minutes of meeting him. My primary symptom was a zombie arm which bothered me 24 hours a day for the two months it took me to jump through insurance hoops and get a proper diagnosis. I'm fortunate, some people have symptoms for years. I had immediate relief after surgery. Recovery takes time (6 months to a year). My biggest concern now is trying not to undo all the good the surgery did. I highly recommend Dr. Schroeder.

I picked Dr. Gregory Schroeder out of a few choices for my back issue and I'm glad I did. I needed to see a surgeon and after my initial visit he told me he could help me. He is a great doctor that explained why I had pain. explained how he would fix it and did it with such confidence that I knew immediately he was the right choice, and after having spine surgery I felt wonderful as soon as I woke up! The staff are great, and his assistant is kind, helpful, and there when you need her!
