Dr. Spott's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Spott "As an Indiana native, I am pleased to care for patients in Northwest Indiana. My goals are to present the highest level of orthopedic care, free the patient from painful symptoms, and provide comprehensive, long-term relief. In order to reach those goals, I utilize a variety of techniques from non-surgical therapeutic alternatives to complex spine instrumentation, disk replacements, and decompressions as appropriate for each patient. I am committed to working with each patient to achieve satisfactory management of the condition. Whenever possible, I use minimally invasive surgical techniques such as micro-discectomy, foraminotomy, and vertebroplasty. My general orthopedic techniques for fracture repair, minimally invasive joint replacements and state of the art skeletal fixation are used to decrease the amount of convalescence and speed the recovery to fit societies demands for a speedy return to a normal lifestyle.

After I injured my back during a workout, I called Dr. Spott's office. They were able to get me an appointment right away. The office staff was VERY friendly and explained everything to me. I was taken back to see the doctor very quickly once I got there, and I was shocked that I waited less than 2...more

Has a terrible staff and is difficult to talk to. Ignores what you have to say and doesn't explain anything. He has nothing but dollar signs on his mind. Just read half of the memo's around his office. Was completely unreachable for 3-4 days.
