Dr. Lonstein performed a lumbar (L4-5) fusion and decompression for me twenty years ago. It was a difficult 6.5 hour surgery due to the extensive degeneration of my whole spine. I have experienced complete success and have not had any low back pain since the surgery. He changed my life and I cannot say enough good about him!

Dr. Lonstein was my doctor from age 8-18, 1995-2005. He followed me every step of the way with my scoliosis. If he didn't like how my brace fit he made sure it was corrected. I had two surgeries which turned out great. Tough to go through but would not change a thing. I loved how passionate he was toward his patients. I will never forget him and how he helped me.

I was 15 when I had extensive spine surgery performed by Dr. Lonstein. We were told he was the best, which may very well be true. However the only options he presented were essentially: have the surgery and live forever with rods spanning from T1-L3 to fix the problem, wear a brace for upwards of 20 hours a day to slow the problem, or do nothing and suffer the debilitation inevitably. Inow know that those are NOT the only options and regret every day having the surgery which I cannot undo.
