Dr. Perra is an amazing surgeon. He is very professional in the office and takes time to explain things. He is one of the best in spinal deformity cases, yet he is very humble. He was able to do amazing work with my back and after a 9 level fusion I am already back to work at 3 months do a fairly physical job.

In 1993 I was in a bad Motorcross accident and was paralyzed from the waist down from a fraction dislocation of the T9 vertebra. I was in Iowa City for 3 months and then sent home in a wheelchair, then went to Dubuque, Iowa for rehab and when I did not improve the orthopedic surgeon there referred me to Dr. Perra who did my surgery and basically saved my life and my ability to walk and lead a normal life. Now 25 years later I am doing great and have him to thank.

I checked out many Dr. for a broken C2, including Mayo ,Dr. Perra was highly recommended, I was completely satisfied with him and his staff. I consider him as others who recommended him as one of the best in the country and feel very fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I was willing to drive a 1,000 miles for the opportunity of his professional service. God Bless Dr. Perra.

Dr. Perra performed decompression surgery on my back to relieve a pinched nerve and repair a herniated disc. He is an excellent surgeon with many years of experience. His manner was professional, caring, informative and thorough. I would strongly recommend Dr. Perra to anyone needing spine surgery or any of the conditions he treats. The Twin City Spine Center is friendly and guides you every step of the way when preparing for appointments and surgery.
