Dr. Canavati is an amazing surgeon. He has performed two fusions on my neck and I couldn't be happier. My first neck surgery that was done by another surgeon was a mess and he took me on and fixed what was wrong and then did my next surgeries. He listened to my issues and didn't just look at my MRI which didn't show my neck was that bad. We knew going into the last surgery that it was a 50/50 chance things would be better. I am doing great and I owe it to him. He is the best surgeon!

What a rude man, he tells you one thing but when insurance wants pt and shots first changes everything, my husband has numbness in leg, back pain and neck and arm pain, well dr wanted to do surgery scheduled it then insurance wanted other things first, he got worse, went in was treated so badly, he yelled at us changed his story and sent us on our way feeling so angry, calling attny today

The absolute worst appointment I have ever had with but any doctor, period. Never have i felt so dismissed, disrespected, and rushed by any other doctor. He didn't listen to a single word I had to say, because I am "20 years old and am too young for surgery." I had to repeat myself 3 times that I had already gotten a trigger point injection. Best part is? He leaves the room saying "we'll have to get you set up for a trigger point injection." AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

He did my fusion surgery and he put the screw into my spinal cord and where the nerves come through. Thanks to this Quack of a Dr I'm facing another surgery. I don't recommend this Dr. He ruined me. He has no business being a Dr.

Dr. Canavati saw the need for spinal fusion immediately. I had gone to a well-known Indianapolis spine specialist, who recommended P.T. for three months In pain to the point that I could not function, I took my film to Dr. Canavati, who showed me the problem and recommended a three level fusion. My insurance denied coverage, and Dr. Canavati did a peer-to-peer review and my insurance accepted coverage. Dr. Canavati gave me my life back.
