Care Philosophy

Most patients with a spinal pain do not require surgery. However, for those who are surgical candidates it is important to work with a surgeon who will help you pick the least invasive and most motion sparing option in order to maximize your function. For those patients who pursue surgery, Dr. Madsen utilizes the most advanced technology including minimally invasive surgery, disc replacement, computer assisted navigation and robotic assisted surgery.

Dr Madsen failed to provide me a fusion of my L5-S1 spine in 2014. He and Dr Choi failed at providing me care. Just know the true facts on the Doctors rate of failed surgeries is false. I don't understand how they don't have to report this information but they don't. When the new surgeon did get in to fix the failed fusion I was told the CAGE was embedded into my L5 it was a long surgery and I am still tying to recover. I will never be the same as Dr. Madsen advised me

I had an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (c5-6 and c6-7) in 2010. I was in intense pain prior to seeing dr madsen. He quickly diagnosed the issue, scheduled surgery and walla! I had NO pain following surgery nor since. He had a wonderful , patient, confident, calm demeanor. I recommend him highly

I was in horrible pain and had an MRI. A junior high student could have seen the horrible damage in my neck. I was 4mm from being paralyzed. He did a thorough exam also. He scheduled me for surgery the next week. He didn't hesitate to do it. He could see the horror on my face. He looked at me and said, "I know this is very scary for you, but you need to know it's not for me". I was very reassured. My surgery went great and I have my life back!!! Thank you Dr. Madsen, I'm riding my mule again.

Do NOT waste your time entrusting your health to this pretentious snob of a "doctor." This "doctor" barely has the time of day to sit & actually listen to health concerns & context given. Let alone his "examination" - he spent a rushed 30-seconds "examining" my back for the problems I presented. And don't waste your time with imaging. He took 2 looks at my MRI & concluded "there's nothing my tools can do for you." I could not be more disgusted with the time I spent with "Dr." Madsen.

Dr Madsen performed a C5/C6 disc replacement on my neck 2 1/2 years ago. I was in horrible pain prior to the surgery. Every other Dr wanted to do a fusion because they were not familiar with a disc replacement. Given my age at the time, 41, and the otherwise good condition of my spine he felt that I was a good candidate for a disc replacement. The nerve pressure was immediately relieved after surgery. I have been able to live my life pain-free. He is extremely respectful, and a good communicator
