I have had back issues for almost 10yrs! I finally grafter all types of treatments decided to go with Dr. Popper with Minimal Invasive TLIF Spinal Fusion. I am currently in my first week of recovery and still cannot believe the pain is totally gone! I would recommend this young Dr. to be the best around!!

I started seeing Dr.Popper last year for my neck problem. After almost a year of conservative treatment (my choice), we decided it was time for surgery. I had surgery on 2/14/19 and was back to work less than 3 weeks later and I feel great! He is a wonderful doctor with the upmost respect for his patients. He has a very high level of professionalism, but is also compassionate and caring at the same time. In my opinion one of the best around, and I would highly recommend him to any and everyone!
