Dr. Murray is the ONLY ONE in the area that accurately diagnosed my problem, gave me options and then offered the most cutting edge options for me. I saw another surgeon (supposedly with a good reputation) at another practice and they misdiagnosed my problem and then tried to pressure me into surgery. I had surgery with Dr. Murray and my pain is gone! I was back to work in 2 weeks after surgery. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and see Dr. Murray first!

Dr. Murray is an extraordinarily gifted surgeon and a very kind and compassionate person. In my case, he performed a Anterior Cervical Disc Fusion in September 2019. After months of horrible pain, six weeks post op, I am completely pain free. This has changed my life and I am deeply grateful to Dr. Murray and his staff for taking such great care of me.

I have had 3 lumbar fusions and by far, the last one as performed by Dr. Murray, was the least traumatic and most impressive. . His personal caring and "listening" has resulted in excellent pain management and significantly good recovery. His entire team is very available and responsive.

I suffered from stenosis in my neck, fused C4-C7. Appointments were always speedy. Great listener. Provided answers to all my questions. Although I had prescription medication for pain, it wasn't needed. He was amazing!

Dr. Murray removed three herniated discs and fused four vertebrae in my neck, relieving me of years of pain. Recovery was smooth and even with some reduced range of motion, I feel so much better. After years of chiropractors, physical therapists and pain management doctors, Dr. Murray fixed what they couldn't.

I suffered for 15 years and tried pain mgmt. (spinal shots) couldn't take it anymore. I went to Dr. Murray. he operated on my back and no more sciatica and I am more than happy. It is like a new beginning. I can walk again without pain and I am so pleased. I would suggest anyone who has a back problem, see Dr. Murray. He is truly a miracle worker. I trust him and I recommend him to anyone suffering back problems.

After being hit by a car, I experienced debilitating back pain for two years. Other doctors left me feeling defeated and ignored. Dr. Murray was the first doctor who took the time to understand my injury and made me feel like I was being listened to. He took all of the appropriate conservative treatment measures before recommending surgery. The surgery was a success and I finally have my life back! I can't thank him and his staff enough for going above and beyond throughout the entire process.

Prior to finding Dr. Murray, I thought that I was going to have to travel out of state to have minimally invasive spine surgery. Luckily, I heard about Dr. Murray from friends in the medical field. The results of my surgery and my overall experience with Dr. Murray far exceeded my expectations! Not only did I get back to work 2 weeks after my fusion, but Dr. Murray was fabulous during the entire process. You can tell that he truly cares about his patients and it shows. He is truly the best

I had put off getting a spinal fusion for so long because of the pain and long recovery that I saw with people that had these surgeries. I eventually decided to have a minimally invasive spine fusion at L4-L5 and went home the very next day. The nerve pain in my legs was gone and I only had what I would describe as ‘soreness’ where the incision was. I was doing so well, people couldn’t believe that I had a spine fusion. If someone needs a spine fusion, I hope that they see Dr. Murray!

Dr. Murray is an extraordinarily skilled spinal surgeon as well as a truly lovely person. After an unsuccessful back surgery 1 1/2 years ago that resulted in continued back pain and a new pain in my leg, I was lucky to find Dr. Murray. Now, 7 weeks after Dr. Murray's surgery, my back pain is so much better and my leg pain is gone! We are blessed here in Chester County to have such a top notch spine surgeon available. His caring attitude and terrific bedside manner are just icing on the cake!

Dr. Murray is the best in the Philadelphia area. I saw a number of surgeons and no one else has his experience with minimally invasive spine surgery. He did a minimally invasive spinal fusion at L5-S1 and I was back to work in 3 weeks. A friend that had a traditional spine fusion wasn't back until 3 months after surgery. I don't know why someone would go anywhere else.

I was sent to Dr. Murray for surgery to replace a cervical disc. Dr. Murray is very easy to talk to, and took as much time as needed to answer all of my questions and to make it very clear what I could expect with the surgery and the recovery. On the day of the surgery Dr. Murray came to see me in pre-op to make sure I was comfortable and that all my questions had been answered. He again saw me after the surgery to let me know everything went well. I highly recommend him to anyone.

I was very pleased by Dr. Murray's attention to my questions and the clarity with which he answered them. He discussed surgical and other options with me intelligently, including risks and expected outcomes. He seemed very willing to spend as much time with me as was needed to discuss all of my concerns.

Dr. Murray is easy to talk to. He listens to you and does not make you feel rushed. I feel confident and on the same page with him after our first meeting and that has continued throughout our history. His follow up post surgery was the best and I would include his staff with that statement also. After discharging me from the hospital a few days after my surgery I had to return to the hospital with issues not related to my surgery. Dr. Murray continued to check in on me every day. Thank You Dr.

Dr. Murray has a friendly open manner and is a great communicator - he listens carefully and explains things well. My lumbar fusion was a success and very easy to recover from. Follow up was great - he is easy to contact and called me twice in addition to the post-op in-hospital visit. I have already recommended him to a friend who had a fusion two years ago and now needs more work.

Before having spine surgery I did my homework... I got an opinion from another surgeon in Delaware and also went to the Rothman Institute. Dr. Murray exceeded my expectations and stood out, head and shoulders above the other doctors both as a surgeon and in his ability to connect with his patients.

Dr. Murray was wonderful and very professional. he was very compassionate and spent a great deal of time answering all of my questions and concerns. He and his staff were quick to call me back when I had questions. I felt great immediately after surgery. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. The surgery was a great success and I have not felt pain free in many years.

Dr. Murray was very professional and did a great job in explaining my options. He explained my situation in terms that I could understand and gave me his recommendation on the course of action that would benefit me the most. I was very satisfied with my end results from my back surgery. I would recommend Dr. Murray to anyone suffering lower back pain.
