I had severe stenosis, could barely walk, and quickly told I needed surgery. Despite the pain, I took my time and had appointments with four highly recommended specialists over several months to decide on the right procedure and the right doctor. I am amazed and highly satisfied with the result being just four and a half weeks out of surgery.

I needed surgery for Cervical Vertebral disease and sought several different opinions on how to proceed. Dr Janssen impressed me with his knowledge and experience and especially with his compassion. My procedure went perfectly, at every step of the way the care was impressive and compassionate. Dr Janssen and his entire staff treated me and my wife with professional expertise and true compassion. My Anesthiologist was brilliant and the Nurses truly experts and very caring. The facility is top notch. If I or my family ever need surgey I wouldn't hesitate to go to Dr Janssen and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Janssen is an excellent physician, and is a brilliant and talented spine surgeon. He has been a colleague, personal spine surgeon and friend for 14 years. In that time, 4 others friends/colleagues of mine have had spine surgeries with Dr. Janssen with good results, so I recommend him highly from my own two lumbar surgeries and for my friends cervical/lumber surgeries also. He takes the time to carefully go over MRI results do you understand your condition your options, and what to expect in the post-operative time. He explained risks and consequences to my satisfaction, and I was confident that whatever occurred, I had a wise, experienced technically expert surgeon to deal with anything that happened. And Ruth, his PA, was wonderful to see on post-op visits, making sure I felt supported through to he healing process. I highly recommend Dr. Janssen and his competent staff for your spinal problems.
