I had a cervical fusion approximately 5 weeks ago on my C5-7 with Dr. Rovner. Very quickly after meeting Dr. Rovner I sensed that he had the confidence and skill level of an orthopedic surgeon that I was looking for. He answered all of my questions, and I knew that he was the right choice. I have already recommended him to friends who have orthopedic issues. Thank you Dr. Rovner. The Lord continue to use your skills to help hurting people in need of surgical intervention.

the best doctor in the world keep up the great work an your staff is the be
My Mom was diagnosed with stage IV cancer, which spread to her spine, causing a nearly complete spinal cord injury. Dr Rovner provided us with a second opinion - and thank goodness we went to him! He arranged to have her transferred and performed emergency spinal surgery on a gorgeous sunny Sunday. She is now walking with a walker and performing her activities of daily living independently. We will all be forever thankful for your skill, compassion, selflessness and wonderful bedside manner.

I can't say enough great things about Dr Rovner, his staff, the office, and everyone involved! Dr. Rovner establishes rapport easily and made me feel comfortable and in great hands from my initial appointment! He personally responded to emails after the appointment answering any questions I had.
