This is a follow up to my previous review. The night of my surgery a screw came loose from the new bone holding the vertebrae. This caused me to topple over like an accordion. The next day another 5 hours were spent getting new bone While in the nursing home, I was in a great amount pain and no one would attend to me. I was just beside myself. I got up to find help and instead tripped over some furniture and fell hard and long on the nursing room floor and remained there for over 40 minutes before anyone came in. I was in so much pain NOT TO MENTION I was deeply afraid that these post surgical falls probably caused some damage. Dr Regan already told me this was a very serious surgery and to be uber careful not to fall. Weeks turned into 9 months I call in tears, in pain and fearful yet this surgeon is still dodging me. I wondered why. Now I know.

Dr Regan performed an extensive T4 to L5 spinal fusion back in 1997. He failed to put the curve in my husband's lower back and he has been severely disabled with flat back pain syndrome ever since. To Dr Regan's credit, it was one of the first surgeries of this type that he performed on my husband, he has had the benefit of many more years of experience since, now it is now less invasive. My husband is permanently disabled due to this surgery.

I had the best experience with Dr. Regan and his warm staff. Nicole and Deena are both very kind and very efficient. I had a micro disc at L5 S1 at the surgery center and was out the very same day. Couldn't be happier.

Dr. Regan spent more time explaining my complex scoliosis condition with me than the last three surgeons that I have consulted with. One at Mayo Clinic , one at Cleveland, and the last one at Cedars. He really took the time to explain the origin of my pathology, the corrective procedure, and the recovery process. His support staff was incredible! I felt supported 100 percent of the way. I couldn't be more pleased! Thank you again Dr. Regan!

I saw 3 spinal surgeons at Cedars for my herniated disc at L5-S1 in 2016. I chose Dr. Regan because he has written many text books on the subject and he also made me feel very confident that I would be back to my normal activities. I was provided with a comprehensive follow up program and he has been there every step on the way, and happily I am playing tennis again!

After my wife was in a car accident and being from out of the area I took my time to talk to other Orthopedic spine specialists and they all recommend Dr. Regan to review our case. He had ordered an MRI so that he could see the extent of the damage to my wife’s back. Dr. Regan’s masterful bedside manners and his skill as a surgeon helped my wife with a speedy recovery that has allowed her to live a normal life. I will definitely recommend Dr. Regan to others that need spinal surgery.

In 2015, I had already had four (4) spinal surgeries, was 70 lbs overweight, and addicted to opioids. I was not easy to work with. Dr. Regan went in, removed a lot of bone from my back from the overgrowth at the fusion site (L5-S1), and performed a laminotomy at L4-5. Two years later, I have lost 55 lbs.,, gotten off all pain medications, play golf (well), and I am training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Dr. Regan is a phenomenal surgeon,-but the patient has to THEIR part. Remember that.

John Regan paralyzed and crippled my husband. On 4/7/17, Regan was to insert 2 manufactured discs into my husband's neck. Instead , my husband was rendered a quadriplegic. This surgeon also tried to extract a bribe from us. He was cild and uncaring. He is AWFUL, awful; THE WORST. Don't let him paralyze YOU.
