      My experience with the doctor has been great and doing much better.
      in New York, NY |
      My procedure went very well. Dr Spetka relieved all my pain. I have recommended Dr Spetka to other people.
      in Chicago, IL |
      Dr. Spetka is very compassionate and spends as much time with you as you need.
      Dr. Spetka is phenomenal. After my dad suffered two strokes within 48 hours, Dr Spetka put all of the faith and hope back into our family while remaining nothing but confident after BayPark had pretty much told our family he was dead! He removed the golf ball sized mass from my fathers cerebellum and placed a ventricular drain. Barely visible scars and my dad is doing wonderful! Such a wonderful doctor with great bedside manner!!

      Great Doctor!!
      in Adrian, MI |
      Wonderful physician! Highly recommended. He performed a craniectomy and a cranioplasty after I foolishly wrecked my motorcycle and did not have a helmet on (poor outlook). Recently, he removed a cranial abcess that is not all that uncommon after the previous surgeries I had undergone. After talking with some others that have had the same kind of surgery with other doctors, I realize how amazing his work is. I have a large, but now barely visible scar with no brain damage. He is amazing!

      Dr. SPETKA is an inedible neurosurgeon. He is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and caring! He saved me! Respectfully, Michael Zerner

      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.
