Dr. Hyun Bae did something that 7 other well-known LA neurosurgeons refused to do: take on the tough challenge of correcting a 7-year-old botched surgery. Revisionist surgery is a delicate and difficult undertaking. Everyone else looked at my spine, saw too many problems, and backed off. Dr. Bae looked at the same problems and came up with a plan to fix them. He essentially rebuilt my lower spine. As promised, he took away the constant pain, for which I will be eternally grateful.
in Oakhurst, CA |
Dr. Bae was a 2nd opinion after another Dr. recommended a double fusion that required 3 months in a hard brace and then PT for 6 weeks. Dr. Bae recommended a Coflex implant to stabilize the L4/L5 segment and outpatient surgery. Obviously I changed my mind and went with Dr. Bae. He is a very high energy, fast paced Dr. that may put some off, but technically he is amazingly competent and I am so glad that I had him perform the surgery. He was very good explaining everything to my wife and I.

I had a very bad spine. 5 places of surgery. 6 days in the hospital. I'm so much better than before surgery.
|
The disc replacement on my cervical vertebrae didn't work and then when I needed them to help me fill out some forms showing my disability they refused. I wouldn't recommend this Dr.
in malibu california |
He was a great surgeon and did a great job. However his office staff and billing staff are about the worst people one can encounter. They have 0 manners and are lacking education and have no idea as to how to treat a patient. The only one in that office that is trustworthy is Lisa Cano.
