Cervical Surgery - three levels
In 2010 I had Dr. Steck remove my three discs from my cervical area and he substituted cadaver bone in the place of my removed discs. I had follow up with him and other doctors doing MRIs and PET scans have remarked what a good job he did. I asked a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon and he said he sends his patients to Dr. Steck for surgery.

I wish I could review this doctor. However his staff lost my referral paperwork. I just can't see putting my health in the hands of staff that can't keep track of paperwork. Vital information is contained within a patients file and if that can't be kept in a professional manner, then I would be very concerned that something could go wrong because of "messed up paperwork" I just don't understand how that can happen.

Dr. Steck has always demonstrated great patience explaining my condition and options. My case is atypical resulting in many visits with specialist through the years, but if surgery is determined to be the best intervention, Dr. Steck will be my choice to perform the surgery.

Dr Steck does let physician fellows assist with surgery.He is right there making the decisions as a good teacher should. In my opinion it’s not the size of the incision but the end result. I think he is one of the best neurologist and New Orleans is lucky to have him.

Dr Steck allows the residents to perform your surgery. He performs operations the old way with huge incisions. He's one of the worst neurological surgeons in the country
