in Boca Raton, Florida |
Back injections for years was NOT REPAIRING my problem. I knew Dr. Houten was right for me first visit, felt comfortable & scheduled surgery based on what he told us, & on his expertise. At 70 no surgery is easy, but at 10 1/2 months now, I have been PAIN FREE for at least 8 & counting. Aches and pains from therapy, yes, but I'm no longer debilitated & my post op MRI shows I am repaired. Dr. Houten was totally there for my wife and I until my discharge. On my experience- YES TO DR. HOUTEN.

Dr. Houten very successfully performed a spinal fusion revision on me. His patience and the time he took to explain the procedure to my wife and myself helped to make us feel confident in the outcome. His care post op and his promptness in responding to our questions were exceptional. I recommend him very highly.

He is a liar and horrible person. This doctor doesn't care about his patients.
in Bronx New York |
Dr. Houten did my surgery about 10 years ago. I have to have another surgery but sad to say Dr. Houten has relocated in Florida and I live in New York City. I would recommend him to any one who is having neurological problems.
