in Prince George, Va. |
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

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
