The nerves in my lower back were pinched when I stood for over 5 minutes or walked for a block or two. Then my legs would become numb and eventually fail to support me. Dr. Dolphin did a laminectomy on my bottom 4 lumbar vertebrae and I felt relief after one week of recovery. After 6 weeks can stand and walk with no numbness.

I am sooo glad I had a recommendation for Dr Dolphin! He was very informative about the procedure I needed and explained so I understood the surgery and the expected outcome. It was very easy to ask him questions and get answers I needed. I would definitely recommend him for surgery!! My surgery turned out great, painfree now and very happy! THANKYOU DR Dolphin !

Had been suffering from back pain for several years and was referred to Dr. Dophin via co-worker recommendations. Was able to get an appointment as a new patient without delay. So thankful I finally went, as I needed surgery to repair a herniated disc. Had a microdisectomy surgery in the L4-L5 area. Walked out of the hospital after surgery in a little over 3 hours after checking in. I've continued to get stonger each day and have so much more stability. Dr. Dolphin is an an excellent surgeon! I would highly recommend him.

Had a microdiscectomy in 2016 and it gave me my life back! Dr. Dolphin and his team gave me excellent care. I've since been reinjured unfortunately but am hoping for him to get me back up to speed again!

Had an anterial Lumbar Fusion done by Dr. Dolphin in September 2018. I was up and walking just hours after surgery with no back pain! He literally gave me my life back. Him and his staff are exceptional. They take the time to answer your questions and genuinely care about your well being.

Dr. Dolphin was amazing from the start, he gave me three options for my back. I started with a shot from the pain clinic, I reduced my pain for 3 months. I then decided to go for the surgery and I'm very happy I did. I feel great, I can twist and bend and move like I could in years past. I recommend Dr. dolphin and his staff if you have back pain and want to feel better, 100% better!!! Thank you Dr. Dolphin!!
