As you search for Neurosurgeons in the Denver area, Dr. Prall comes highly rated for good reason. I had severe cervical stenosis so I set a consultation to meet him. Dr. Prall was patient and educated me well as to my condition and options. Once the surgery was scheduled I felt at ease and confident with my decision to proceed. He has a wonderful bedside manner and explained what my recovery expectations would be. My outcome couldn't have been better. I have also referred him to friends.

Dr Prall is absolutely the best surgeon! I've had two back surgeries with him since 2004 - my most recent two months ago. He has helped me tremendously! I would recommend him to anyone having any kind of pain. The staff at Littleton Hospital raved about him both times I had surgery. He listens to your concerns and recommends the best solution. He is amazing!!

I was unable stop the surgery that, Dr. Prall felt necessary to perform on my 80 year old Mother. I live in another State, by the time I knew what was happening with my, already weak Mother, I was informed that Dr. Prall had performed the surgery. My Mother passed away 45 days after this surgery. Not because of Dr. Prall's surgery, because of her illness that was not stroke related. I feel, without the surgery, there may have been a more quality to her last days than what we had.

I have used Dr. Prall and his staff twice, both with remarkable results. The first time was 12 years ago with an L5-S1 fusion. I was in horrific pain, and frequently spent days in bed prior to the surgery. My pain was completely gone after the first surgery. My second surgery was this September - L4-L5-S1 with the same results following excruciating sciatica due to a degenerative disc. Expect 8 weeks in a back brace, and excellent results. Walking builds your core, and improves recovery!
in Breckenridge, CO |
Dr Prall was my second opinion, he was a tremendous help and kept me from making a BIG mistake. The surgery (fuse three levels 3-4 4-5 5-6 went very well, recovery time was short I feel I have full mobility and no pain.
