    in Conifer, co |
    Dr. Pettine performed cervical (2 mobi-c at C5-7) and lumbar surgery (fusion/L5-S1) on me on Oct 20, 2014 as well as two stem cell IV flushes (Jul 14/May15).. Prior to meeting Dr. Pettine, I was on FMLA, bedridden and suffered chronic pain throughout my entire body as well as suffered with daily headaches/migranes that stopped me from even leaving the house. Here it is 2 years later and I am no living my life again. I am hiking 14ers, dancing, and travelling the world. Thank you Dr. Pettine.

    Dr. Pettine is a compassionate doctor who explores all options before considering surgery. He keeps up on the latest advances in the field of spine and was named by Becker's as one of America's top 50 spine surgeons in the country. His office may be busy, but they will take care of you.

    Dr. Pettine fixed my bladder and bowel loss from the moment I awoke after surgery. I am so thankful to him for his surgical intervention!
    in Fort Collins CO |
    I have degenerative disk disease both cervical and lumbar. If it were not for Dr. Pettine I would not be able to be having a full and wonderful life, that I am. After placing the DSS system in five levels of my lumbar spine I have been back on my bike, canoeing, and enjoying the out doors again. His kindness and love for his patients has allways been made known. He has done a tremendous amount for the advancement of spinal research. Many people seem to forget the good he has done.
