Dr. Grewe has done three fusings(2 lumbar and 1 cervical). All very successful. He takes time to thoroughly explain and answer my questions. He is very busy, but well worth the wait. His office staff is very competent and helpful. Dr. Grewe’s PA Lorraine needs some help with answering questions...more

Dr. Grewe is an excellent neurosurgeon and a top Legacy trauma doc. His explanations were thorough and he took time to answer all questions. He has a reputation for being conservative with regard to procedures so I trust that he won't perform surgery unless it's really needed.
