      He is very caring and very stern, I was the naughty one, I did not tell him of all the meds I was on which caused me a seizure, again my fault. He is very caring I felt the love he is almost like a dad when he is deceived, very stern as well as he should be. Any problems I have had I called and got a answer even if I didn't like it. He is also very much a nice guy good bedside manor. Don't hesitate to have him as your surgeon.

      in Altoona, WI |
      very caring and wanting to assist to get back to a normal life.
      in Glen Flora, WI |
      Dr. Thapar performed two surgeries on me in the last three weeks, a cervical spine fusion and a lower lumbar laminectomy. He explained things so well, gave me all of the options, quoted statistics if they were available, tried non-surgical treatment first and treated me like an individual. I am so impressed with both he and his two PA's, who are also very involved with patient care. The only down side is that an excellent surgeon like Dr. Thapar has a busy practice, so seeing him is difficult

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
