Dr. Levy has performed 3 back surgeries on me. In years 2000, 2004 & 2015 - all successful! I have no back pain & no limitation of movement! He is the best!

I am a dtr. of a patient of Dr. Levy. My 73 y-o mother has suffered from lower back- leg pain for the past 6 years. Over the past two years the pain become intolerable. After a great deal of thought surgery was the option. I believe Dr. Levy is a good surgeon as after a second opinion there seems to nothing wrong with the equipment, however, after care has little to be desired. He depends on PAs and NPs. Ask lots of questions and ensure he knows you want his attention not just his staffs

If you are needing back surgery go somewhere else. You will be very sorry if you even think about letting him do surgery on you. I had moderate lower back pain with sometime severe never pain down my legs. He said a fusion would relieve my pain and now, I have severe headaches all the time, lower and mid back pain, neck pain, pain between my shoulder blades, twitching in my whole body and a spinal fluid leak. I had a second surgery to fix the spinal fluid leak and that did not go well either.

It's been 15 years since my surgery. I was in the military and injured my back. It was so bad that I had to have surgery right away. I was referred to Dr. Levy who took great care of me. What I can remember is that my injury was so bad I started losing feeling on the right side of my body. Very scary. He was honest with me and told me that I have a long recovery time but if I stayed focused and consistent with my PT that I should feel a lot better. 15 years later he was right. I feel great!!

Dr. Levy was my 2nd opinion, he pulled every MRI since 2000, and discovered I had been misdiagnoised since 2009, and the MRI's remained the same since that time. I Had a herniated disc,now bone, stuck in a nerve. I am very active woman working in crisis response, and almost a year later feel wonderful from that specific disc, still have 2 more but not in that state. Dr. Levy is a wonderful man, had me in surgery of 1 week of seeing him! 100% RECOMMEND!

Everything he referenced was in regards to himself. Not once did he says, a surgery would be hard on me or that the recovery would be hard on me. It was all how a diagnosis would be to hard to figure out and how the old fusions would be too hard to take apart. Regardless if the problems could be fixed or not, it struck me as being as being strange that it sounded as if my appt was about him.

Dr. Levy took the time to explain procedures and answer our questions. He also took the time to confer with other surgeons to find the best approach for us. No ego. I would whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Levy.
