Facing death or potential of being quadriplegic, I searched nation wide for the best cervical spine neurosurgeon. I learned he is right here in Tampa Bay -- Dr. Juan Uribe. My situation is complex & requires enormous technical skill & proficiency. My surgery was on January 12th. I have regained physical mobility & my neck is stable. Melissa Byrd, his assistant, is spectacular. She is always accessible & available to answer any concern. This is the best medical practice anywhere.

I was totally paralyzed from T-5 down in Dec 2012. Had surgery March 2013 and began walking after recovery and rehab. He saved my life. During the processI never wanted or waited for anything. His team and staff especially Evelin and Melissa were amazing. He was very attentive post op and made sure himself that I was cared for properly and my pain managed. And he had no problem relaying to the hospital staff how he expected me to be cared for. He's an amazing man.

Nothing compares to having your quality of life back. Dr. Uribe did my Thoracic spine surgery 6 months ago. There are not enough words to express my appreciation and admiration for Dr. Uribe. I have my life back! My legs are strong and the most important of all is that I have no more back pain!. This is a hard surgery and he does the least invasive way and still a delicate surgery. Be in peace you are in the best hands! Great staff and vary caring.

LOVE HIM!!!! I was in pain for over a year before I finally decided to seek help. He was referred to me by an ER Physician friend of mine, so I called and from the point of meeting his staff Melissa, Tracy and Dr. Uribe, I knew I was in Truly GREAT hands. He is a very caring NON GOD Complex physician who genuinely cares for his patients. He never thought any questions or concerns I had were petty. During all of my office visits he NEVER rushes through them. He will take all the time YOU

After suffering with sciatica for 3 years, I had back surgery. Dr. Juan Uribe removed two discs, fused L4, L5, S1 and corrected my spondylolisthesis. Now on my tenth day post-op, I am pain free, walking 20-30 minutes on the treadmill and feel great. I am not tired, eating well and doing more than I expected following a six hour procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Juan Uribe and his wonderful staff. Back surgery can be frightening, but with a skilled surgeon, it can give you your life back.

I met with Dr Uribe for the first time, provided my x-rays & MRI images, discussed my symptoms and together we decided on a plan of conservative treatment. I was very pleased with his approach and look forward to his medical help in the near and distant future.
I had neck surgery a few months ago with dr.uribe. He's with the USF neurosurgery group in Tampa, FL. I was having pain and loss of motion in my neck due to a car accident. He spent quite a bit of time with me during my appt to talk about options. I decided to have surgery. His staff was wonderful and I couldn't be happier with the results. He took great care of me from beginning to end. I have full range of motion back and no pain. I endorse Dr.Utibe and am so fortunate to have found him.
