Dr Varnavas took the time to examine my condition, laid out the options available and I chose for him to perform a lamectomy on my L4 in July 2016. He is very professional, his staff and the hospital were great. I would highly recommend Dr. Varnavas to family and friends

My husband is a 'no nonsense', matter of fact type person. He appreciated this physician's directness. Surgery went extremely well, recover was quick. Home the day following surgery..minimal pain. Over a year since surgery and continues to be pain free.
