About Me

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...

What People Say About Dr. Michael Madsen, MD

I am the spouse of a physician and my standard of excellence is above the general threshold. I was fused at C5-6 ten years ago and then herniated the disk at the C6-7 level recently. Given my critical condition Dr. Madsen got me in quickly, was extremely attentive to my story, gave me the best recommendation of getting an ADR which I thought was crucial given my occupation as a pianist. Thanks to his impeccable surgery and outcome, which exceeded my expectations, I am back to playing, pain free.

After calling in to pay my bill today I decided to finally post my review ( I tried to avoid writing bad reviews) my last appointment (to go over my MRI and xrays) which I had to pay my $70 co pay was horrible service from a medical Dr. First Dr. Madsen was going over a different patient xrays and I HAD to point that out to him. I asked him a question and his response was "I'm sorry can you repeat that I have to remember where am?" I walked out of there so confused and didn't feel comfortable

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
