      After 3 other experienced surgeons (including one that did my past ACDF) told me to go on long term pain management for my symptoms, I was crushed. Dr. Lars Gardner came up with a plan that was not only insightful, but successful in resolving my injury and pain. I found out that he had to adapt his surgical plan somewhat after opening me up; but he made decisions that were in my best interests as the patient, not his time or pocket. He was very thorough in his explanations, courteous, did not rush me, nor was he condescending. I found him caring and helpful. His staff (especially Stephanie!!) have been so accommodating post op as well. I’ve had tons of questions and minor freak outs where I’ve called their office, and they call me back the same day, patiently explain everything I’m concerned about and help calm me down. They’ve also been very upfront about risks, recovery, and long term success. As a repeat spine surgeon patient, I would highly recommend Dr. Lars Gardner.
