Dr Garber and PA Dustin are miracle workers and match made in heaven. They performed microdiscectomy on my L4-L5 herniated disc and I woke up finally feeling my old self. Herniation was extremely large, 13 millimeters and I was in excruciating pain in the last 4 months, was not able to walk or stand for longer than 5 min and basically every other activity I enjoyed before this was out of the question. I am extremely active 35 year old, always thought of myself as a bulletproof , thought nothing could knock me down but this 13mm sucker brought me down to my knees until Dr Garber and Dustin showed up. Surgery went amazing with no issues, woke up and few hours later I went home, just couldn't believe I was walking straight up again right after the surgery. Lisa who handled paperwork is amazing as well, got surgery approved shortly after appointment and helped me navigate paperwork along the way, super pleasant and nice . Dr Garber and his team gave me my life back.

Dr. Garber and his surgical staff performed ACDF operation. At the time I had numbness in both arms, plus both arms feeling like it was asleep. I experience a sensitivity to heat/humidity also. This went on for 2 years. After having the surgery I can honestly say all conditions are non-existent. I am truly grateful to Dr. Garber, and his surgical staff for greatly improving my way of life. I would not hesitate if needed to seek out Dr. Garber in the future. Be Advised! He is clear that surgery should be the last option. I see why he is in high demand. He is a excellent surgeon. Dustin his PA, is his right hand he also deserves a Shout Out! Thanks again!

On June 12th of 2019 Doctor Jason Garber performed cervical spine surgery on me to relieve the constant pain on the left side of my neck and the left upper arm. Following the surgery I awoke in the recovery room to find the pain completely gone. The amazing part of this is that I had absolutely no pain from the incision site or the affected spinal area and have had no pain anywhere since. It has been 1 1/2 months since the surgery and I am still pain free. Any one looking for a spinal surgeon in the Las Vegas area really only has one option. Dr Garber is far and away the absolute correct choice. I will never even consider another surgeon.
