I thank God for Dr. Isaza. He performed my SI joint fusion surgery. It's been 7 days, and other than the typical pain from surgery, my SI joints do not hurt!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Isaza for years and was recommended by Dr. Bryan Giffith. Dr. Griffith said if he had to have someone cut on his back it would most definitely be Dr. Isasa. I saw him and was very happy he did not try to rush me into surgery but tried other alternatives first. Even after that he did not rush me into agreeing to surgery he said it was my decision. I have never looked back. It was wonderful to be pain free!

Dr. Isaza has the most caring staff that I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. They truly care for you as an individual. He guided me through the treatment process and figurative held my hand even when he sent me to a different doctor for pain management. As a surgeon I thought he would be quick to want to operate on my problems but he tried every avenue to alleviate the pain before he suggested surgery. I appreciated that thoroughness. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Isaza and his staff.
