Dr Blumberg demonstrates an appropriate level of confidence consistent with his superior skill and made me feel that he was going to make sure that my herniated disc was perfectly treated and that he was going to heal me. I knew he was the one and there could be no other! --when my disc became excruciatingly painful--he did just that...cured me. If you need spinal care-especially surgery,,,trust no other than Dr Blumberg!

He fractured my spine during surgery- had to revise planned surgery. Rods were to be only mid thoracic spine, now rods are from T3 to L5/S1. he put screws in sacrum to stabilize. He had me on a tread mill shortly after surgery. Never braced me to let the screws set in and heal. screws in sacrum have a hole Halo Effect around them. The pain in my back worse then ever. Needed 2 additional surgeries to repair. Helped but became disabled-extremely difficult to live, raise 3 boys myself.TY

Outstanding surgeon and medical practitioner. I had succesful surgeries with him and on one occasion, he came out to the emergency room on a weekend to evaluate me and the urgency for surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Blumberg as well as the entire staff at the Florida Spine Specialists.
