    I was referred to Dr.Liu by two physician friends. He is the Co-Director of the USC Keck Spine surgery. I have had two previous spine surgeries and only surgery could stop the sciatic pain I had and the other spinal issues. I saw four surgeons, neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Liu had the finest clinical backgrounds. He was personable, professional and caring. He tried to alleviate pain with non-servical interventions but only surgery would do it. He performed two surgeries.

    Dr. Liu was the third surgeon I spoke to and he had the best, most holistic approach. I did ultimately have surgery which was a complete success, but he tried to help me avoid surgery as long as possible. He was always patient, courteous, and made sure he answered all of my questions.

    I really like Dr. Liu and his team. He is very conservative with his approach. I have been to a lot of back specialist in my life and Dr. Liu is the only one I ever let do surgery on me. I drive all the way from Thousand Oaks so I can see Dr. Liu

    I had a previous back surgery from a diffrent surgeon. I was in chronic pain for months. I finally got in to see Dr Liu and he did another back surgery. This was the best decision I ever made. I have no pain and am off all medication. I'm back to running and exercising. I can't thank him enough. He Truly saved my life and am so thankful I went to him. He is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend him !
