Dr Santman is an excellent surgeon. He performed ACDF surgery on my neck in Oct 2016 and i had no problems or complications and the problem was well resolved--great outcome. He is also friendly and takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions.

Dr. Santman and his team performed my laminectomy on Nov. 7 of this year. I can say after 4-6 weeks of rest and recovery, I am finally after 25 years pain free! All of my appointments with Dr. Santman were informative and relaxed, I never felt pressured to make a decision. I am glad I went with the surgical option after exhausting my other treatment options. The surgery went very smoothly, and the follow up has been great. I highly recommend Dr. Santman and his professional, courteous team!

The most important aspects of my experience with Dr Santman and Mr Dimas (his assistant), namely treatment, outcome, and aftercare, were outstanding. Dr Santman is articulate and confident, and both traits helped increase my confidence that my treatment would be successful--and it was.
