I feel very bad to write this because Dr Dryer is a nice man. But his surgery destroyed my life. He put in an artificial disc replacement at C 5/6. Granted I wanted an ADR. Other other surgeons told me I should’ve been told I wasn’t a candidate The ADR device clearly did not fit and was not placed correctly. This is what I was told by other surgeons. It was a total failure and had to be removed less then one year later. It introduced movement where I didn’t have any, caused the level about the fail. When it was removed, I then needed a two level fusion. The removal of it took half of two on my vertebrae’s with it. So after having the fusion ,the screws started coming out because there was no bone to hold them in. So I then needed a posterior surgery and placement of more screws and rods. That surgery was horrible. And now I’m looking at another surgery because the level above and below are failing when there was nothing wrong with them before. From athlete to train wreck

Dr. Dryer did spinal surgery on me 11 years ago with wonderful results and that's why there was no question of who to bring my daughter to when she was having severe siatic pain. Dr. Dryer explained everything to her and she is feeling so much better. NYU was a wonderful hospital and all the nurses in pre-op and recovery were just as professional and caring as she was 19 and extremely scared. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Dryer
