Dr. Tinley is one who likes to teach patients about their condition and what can be done before anyone makes a decision. He is a great advocate for the best outcomes for his patients and is very down to earth during the office visits. I trust him.

I went to Dr tinley for a year before he decided to do surgery. I had surgery and the only time he explained anything to me about what was going to happen was my last visit before the surgery. And then he didn't tell me everything. He told me they were going to replace the disk. Well I didn't know they put in screws and rods. And pulled bone marrow out of my hips. It was a failed surgery. I have since had a spinal stimulator put in and still in pain. Will never use him or refer anyone to him

Dr Tinley got me immediately out of neck and arm pain exactly as described without having to fuse the disc. He took the time to explain the problem to me, show me my MRI, and give me all the options of what works and what may not. He guided me through trying medications and physical therapy first, and when this didn't work, we had a outpatient surgery to fix it! Wish I would've done it sooner!

Overall experience was very OK. We discussed my back surgery prior to, and then he decided to take a different approach. After surgery, my disc herniated again within a month, or as I was told "continued to leak out" - what dies that even mean? I'm managing OK, but the issue isn't resolved and I would not have agreed to the operation had I known that the procedure was going to change when I was under the knife.
Best to address this concern in general rather than this patient's complaint. To avoid re-herniation after a surgery you have to follow your post-op instructions. If you do not understand what I've explained, keep asking questions. I'll take as long as you need. Keep in mind this forum gives anyone the opportunity to post anything, true or not. Addicts, non-compliant patients, even a competitor can leave an anonymous review. I've never once had to "do more than originally planned" as insinuated.

Not impressed. He spent all of 5 minutes talking to me. Minimal effort, no eye contact, spent more time complaining about patients who have had similar issues and why the issue exists. The off the cuff recommendation made the problem worse.
This is the opposite of my intentions as a spine surgeon. The reason I have had to cut the number of patients I see down and lengthen my clinic time is because I spend so long with my patients. My goal is to educate (not "complain", that's ridiculous) my patients on their condition, review and explain their imaging studies, discuss a plan for how to fix it, and give them their options and their prognosis (how they will likely do) with each option. Surgery is almost always the last option.

Dr. Tinley is one of the best spinal Surgeon I know. He performed back surgery and fixed my problem. My back is stronger than before the surgery.
