      the scar is barely visable because the stitches were sewn by the Dr. from the inside out. No one can tell I had anterior fusion on the C5-6. the best ever. I recommend this Dr. over all others.

      Dr. Deutsch is not the friendliest person when you first meet him, but he is a great surgeon. He fixed a failed back surgery from a herniated disc at L4-L5, then I re-herniated the same level from a car accident a year later. He was extremely cautious about suggesting surgery and wanted to give it time to try to heal on its own, but, alas, he will be performing a disc replacement on me in a few weeks and my husband and I are in full trust of him. I will always go to him and refer friends to him.

      Dr. Deutsch is an outstanding neurosurgeon! Approximately 11 years ago there was a bone chip from a fall on my back that was pushing into my spinal cord. Other doctors had indicated spinal fusion was the remedy and it may have long lasting negative implications. I did not agree with them and enlisted a second opinion from Dr. Deutsch. Through a 30 minute laparoscopic day surgery procedure by Dr. Deutsch, my back was repaired. I have been without any back pain since. Great job!

      He has completed fusions not only for my C4-C5, but three separate fusions over the years in my lumbar area, due to a congenital defect. I have the highest regard for Dr. Deutsch, as well as the greatest level of trust. I have always had excellent results, and have always been able to return to my every day activities. I encourage anyone requiring spinal surgery to please consider Dr. Deutsch for the best possible outcome for you or your loved one.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
