I went to Dr. Lantner with a ruptured disc in my L5/S1 Which was pressing on all of my nerves in my leg so that I could not walk. With an outpatient surgery, Dr. Lantner Repaired the disc so that it was not pressing on anynerves and I was able to walk out of surgery pain-free. I highly recommend this skilled surgeon! His team is wonderful including his nurse practitioner and office staff!

Upon reading the reviews on Doctors webpage, I was very hesitant about going forward with my appointment. Dr. L spent a very intense fifteen minutes with me and gave me instructions to have a MRI. After those results, I was scheduled for Cervical surgery. The negative reviews were likely from patients who complain about every little thing and did not follow the strict pre-op instructions. Dr. Lanter was recommended by four of my physicians who I respect and trust with my life. I will return.

Staff at hospital was great. I woke up from a two level artificial disc procedure pain free except on my back neck muscles which isn't too bad. Incision is small and hoping recover keeps going well. Feeling back in my left arm not my finger though but time might help that too.

Did L4/L5 spinal fusion operation on me several weeks ago. Nothing but praise for this surgeon. He walked my wife and I through the process, step by step, and everything (so far) has gone as planned.
