After a long history of back trouble and 2 surgeries (1970, 78) I reached the point of having great difficulty walking with increasing trouble. My Primary Care Dr. recommended to me Dr. Herzog as one of the best Ortho back surgeons in the RVA. After diagnosing nerve compression in my lower spine he operated on me Jan 17, 2017. Each subsequent day I healed and regained my strength more and more and after 6 weeks I completed my first mile walk of many more hopefully to come! Thank you Dr. Herzog!
Thank you for taking the time to leave such kind words! Best wishes for you in the future.

My husband fell in August and was wheelchair bound; he was referred to Dr. Herzog. After taking and reviewing several x-rays and MRI, Dr. Herzog diagnosed Don immediately. There was an area where bones were pressing against his spine causing weakness in his hips resulting in him falling. Dr. Herzog scheduled surgery. After therapy Don, at the age of 77, is able to walk again using a walker and go up an down stairs. We would definitely recommend Dr. Herzog to our family and friends
Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind message. I will be sure to pass along the comment here.

Dr. Herzog diagnosis my problem and corrected it with surgery. I have been pain free since the day of my surgery. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

My issue was numbness and tingling running up and down my legs. Finally I got where I couldn't walk. Herzog ordered a MRI which revealed a cyst on my spine. The location was between L4 and L5 on my lower spine. Herzog told me exactly what procedure he was to perform and that relief would be instantly. I reviewed the internet on what my options were and I was pleased to fine Herzog's choice was the recommended choice for a complete recovery. After 1 month my scar has healed and I have no pain.
in Midlothian, VA |
More than 25 yrs of sever chronic spine pain & related nerve path issues left me debilitated & unable to walk. With so much to live for. I felt my life was growing short. In May 2016, I met Dr Herzog. After so many specialists, he was the 1st to properly diagnosed me. Surgery was set up ASAP and the results were immediately obvious. I have No More Pain anywhere nor related issues, I can alsstop many meds I no longer need. Today, 2 weeks post-op, I am walking 2 miles a day and feel Marvelous!
in Chaparral, NM |
With the fusion of L4-S1 extremely happy, I went from sometimes in the morning screaming in pain to practically nothing but being a little sore a day here , a day there
in El Paso, Texas |
Very knowledgable and great bedside manner.

Dr. Herzog says...

Joshua Herzog has a passion for complex spinal conditions to include, degenerative spine, spinal deformity, tumor, trauma and cervical diseases.

Dr. Herzog says...

Joshua Herzog is a pioneer is the world of minimally invasive spine surgery.  

Not every patient, however, is a candidate for a minimally invasive approach to spine surgery. To see if you are a candidate for this approach for spinal tumors, deformity, trauma, or degenerative disease you must be fully evaluated by a surgeon knowledgeable and experienced in these minimally invasive techniques.

Minimally invasive spine surgery offers several advantages over open surgery, which typically requires large incisions, muscle stripping, more anesthesia, a long hospital stay, and a long recuperation period. The benefits of spine surgery include:

  • A few tiny scars instead of one large scar 
  • Shorter hospital stay – a few days instead of a week 
  • Reduced postoperative pain 
  • Shorter recovery time – a few months instead of a year – and quicker return to daily activities, including work 
  • Less blood loss during surgery 
  • Reduced risk of infection

  •  Based on total number of patients treated over the last 12 months
