Dr halperin performed a laminectomy on my herniated discs l3, 4, and 5. I was in back and leg nerve pain for years. This surgery gave me my life back. Dr. Halperin and his team were wonderful!
in Montville, CT |
I had consultations with neurosurgeons and other well known spine specialist before choosing Dr. Halprin. He explained that my cervical spine was better served by repairing each disc individually ( open door laminoplasty ) rather than a rod and fusing. Dr. Halprin was correct, my freedom and movement is incredible. No other doctor even mentioned this option to me. I believe this procedure is more extensive and less profitable for doctors but more beneficial for patients.

Dr Halperin makes his mistakes but never acknowledges his fault. I am tired of his denial, the only thing i will do now is file a complaint with the board. If after surgery you are worse , new symptoms developed and this Dr will never admit that his work may have caused the new issues. He will tell you that a new surgery is needed but blame it on pre-existing.He will cut you and refused to provide medications within 4 weeks. if i have to have a second surgery then he is to blame. Hurt my family

Dr Halperin treated me for a herniated disc. He took his time and explained everything to me in detail. I'm 100% better now and I would recommend him to anybody looking for a high quality, detailed oriented spine surgeon. He's the best!
