We had a difficult time locating the Westminster office. Dr. Loutzenhiser explained my options well. He didn’t seem to rush us through the appointment.

Dr Loutzenhiser performed spinal fusion on my L2-5, 8 screws 2spacers and 2 rods. I hiked 4.5 miles 15 days out and had an amazing recovery. I trust him with my life. I like his bedside manner too. He is very down to earth and humble.

Dr. Loutzenheiser changed my life and I will forever be grateful. After several years of extreme pain I had surgery 8/18. He made sure I understood any options and supported me along the way. Everything turned out exactly as planned. I was not only in the best hands for advice but also a very successful surgery. He and his team are truly the best!

He is a very knowledgeable doctor. He did a minimally invasive surgery on my back 5 years ago, and I am needing an open back surgery sometime soon. While I dread the surgery, I am glad I have Dr. Loutzenhiser. He explains my condition, and how to approach it in a way that is easy to understand, I really like him, butI I also trust him. He really knows his stuff!!!! I would recommend him to anyone needing this type of care!

I had surgery by Dr. L about two years ago and recently saw him for a follow up. He’s courteous, detailed and an active listener. I highly recommend him for his aptitude, personality and skills.

Dr. Loutzenhiser performed surgery on my back 12/31/15. He fused L2,3,4,5,S1. I was in severe pain for years before the surgery. I had pain from my lower back to my ankles. I was hunched over and couldn’t walk more than a half block. Since the surgery I was able to resume normal activity including skiing of black diamond slopes and climbed a 14er (Quandary) last summer. I highly recommend Dr. Loutzenhiser. Gray beside manner also. Only wish I would have done it sooner!

Dr. Loutzenhiser performed surgey on me July of 2018. I had anterior / posterior L5-S1 spinal fusion. From the beginning Dr. Loutzenhiser informed me of all my options and took the time to help me understand the injury I had. As an active 22 year old I was very concerned for the future of my spine with a fracture to the L5. Six months post surgery I am completely back to health and in zero pain. He is down to earth and pays attention to detail. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon.

Brilliant doctor and excellent communicator. It has been 5 years since he repaired my back and he gave me my life back. I’m able to do whatever I need to and remain independent. I also play Pickleball, hike and enjoy life thanks to Dr. Loutzenhiser’s skill as a surgeon. He’s the best.

Answered all of my questions and concerns...figured out my problem instantly... I had already been to my pcp twice and she didn’t know what the issue was. Created a plan to help my issue. Didn’t seem in a rush or anything. Will be back if needed!

Dr. Loutzenhiser has treated me with great respect an concern over the last 3 years. He has always explained everything in detail and is willing to answer any and all of my questions. He is genuinely concerned about my quality of life and, with surgery, given me my full, active life back (including climbing 14ers, mountain biking, and skiing!). I would recommend Dr. Loutzenhiser to anyone with back issues.
