About Me

Care Philosophy

I am fundamentally committed to practicing medicine and neurosurgery with the sole focus on what is best for the patient. Economics and bureaucracy should not prevent patients from receiving the best care available. When the restoration of optimal state of health is our only concern, we know optimal outcomes are achieved and we have done our job.

Top notch Dr.; I had two surgerys, one lower back and one neck. Results exceeded expectations. Debilitating pain and limited mobility both corrected. No drugs are needed at this point in life. His staff is also top notch, Jennifer goes well above and beyond what I have seen in other medical practices. She just makes things happen without any excitement or issues.

My husband, George has been under the excellent care of Dr. Michel Levesque since 2008 and has had 3 spinal surgeries. Each time, Dr Levesque prepared us with an understandable diagnosis, valid expectations relating to the procedures, the hospital stay as well as the long term outcome. His outstanding surgical skills along with the great support the nursing staff at Cedars Sinai made each surgery very successful. George now lives pain free with sturdy back and neck.

I have suffered for years with low back pain and pain in both legs. After meeting with several surgeons I chose Dr Levesque. I had my surgery in May 2015. The surgery was a complete success and I am pain-free in my back and legs. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Levesque to anybody.

I was referred to Dr Levesque in late October; I'd suffered debilitating lower back pain for 7 years. Quality of life was poor, my acting affected, golf a fond memory. I brought in a new MRI, discussed approaches and scheduled surgery on Nov 17th. I left Cedars the next morning, my pain now a 2-3. For the next 6 weeks I did no lifting, twisting or bending. This morning we met, I bent over and put both knuckles on the floor, then stood up. No pain. I'll be 72 in Feb. Thank you!
