    My experience with Dr. Snyder was great. I would highly recommend her. My surgery was a fusion of the L5 S1 lumbar. I believe in technical terms it was a laminectomy plus a LEW-LIF procedure. I have suffered of lower back pain for over 20 years and in early 2020 the pain just became too much. I had my surgery in August 2020 and the results have been amazing. The procedure has been life changing. I can walk and stand without pain. It's not perfect, still muscle tweaks now and then, but overall the surgery was amazing.

    I had two back surgeries. First unsuccessful one by Dr Snyder's professor and four months later by Dr Snyder, which left me even with more pain. Now I am on an opioid patch and oral meds for pain, usually need a back brace, a cane to stand or walk, and physical therapy twice a week. Now I am 2 inches shorter, my body leans forward making standing and walking difficult. My surgeries left me in worse shape than pre surgeries.

    Dr Synder perfomed back Surgery on me yesterday 1/4/21. After our first visit with her we knew we found our surgeon. At the end of the meeting she was about to leave the room to see another patient and she saw me pull out some questions we wrote down. Dr Snyder then sat down and went through all our questions without seeming rushed. She is very good at making you feel at ease. Even though this was the worst injury I have ever had. Her staff is also amazing. The day of surgery went great and I was walking around the same day. If you need surgery I highly recommend setting up an appt and having the surgery performed by Dr. Snyder. If I ever need sugery on my back in the future she is the doctor I will be seeing again.

    Dr. Snyder is with Barrows and is amazing. Awesome bedside manner. I crushed my L1, had CT scan, she saw a bone fragment in my spinal canal. She sent me straight to ER & she performed major back surgery the next morning. 6 months out and I'm pretty close to being pain free. Maybe need 1 more steroid shot. I could be paralyzed today had it not been for her.

    Dr. Snyder operated on my spine which had been damaged 50 years ago and was getting worse as I aged. The procedure took a little longer than she expected but the results are wonderful. Absolutely no pain in my back or legs and I retained very good flexibility. Dr. Snyders staff were terrific and the entire experience proceeded just as she explained it would. Although she did not promise to completely correct all the problems I had it did work out that way. I cannot express the level of my gratitude to her and I have been recommending her to everyone I know with spine problems. Great doctor and wonderful surgeon!

    A very caring doctor and a gifted surgeon, I was in the hospital several days after a two level spinal fusion. She stopped every day to check on me. I am now pain free for the first time in years. Thank you Dr. Snyder
