Dr Ahn kindly rearranged his schedule for me the week of my neck and then back surgery. There was concern that I may have become a parepelegic if my surgery was not done right away. I am now walking without a cane and am working on my original goal (to golf again one day).

Dr Ahn performed two back surgeries on me in March of this year. Six weeks after surgery, I am pain free, off all meds, beginning outpatient PT, and reclaiming my life. Dr Ahn is a brilliant surgeon, but better yet, a terrific human being. I can not recommend him highly enough!

Dr Ahn is the most patient and through doctor I have ever been to. He did spinal surgery on me stabilizing a birth defect. I am without pain for the first time in 40 years. I thank God for bringing me to this kind man. Mary Bronson

I was very please with Dr. Ahn from the start with explaining the problem, what would be done in the surgery, the potential outcomes which gave me confidence that I would get the best results possible and be please with the outcome. The first sign of success was the day after surgery waking up without pain in my legs for the first time in a long time. Then the daily followup by his staff and the care from the 6th floor nursing staff was great.

Dr. Ahn is an excellent physician. He is not only a professional but he really listens when you tell him how you are doing. I have had a couple of surgeries and he has explained in detail about the procedure. Follow ups with him are also informative. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of a surgical procedure.

Dr. Ahn performed an anterior cervical fusion on my 89-year-old mother January 9, 2019. He did a superb job. His bedside manner is amazing. I would recommend him for surgery to anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Nicholas U. Ahn of University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio is an amazing surgeon! He performed my spinal surgery in response to a Rt. total knee surgery than had complications. I no longer have that back pain! I am able to bend, walk around, go up/down stairs without pain. I call him "THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN HANDS". (The knee issue is still there). Four years later, I follow up with Dr. Ahn, a very kind, professional, & CARING physician who is assisting me again. I am SO blessed! Steve P.

Dr. Ahn is an excellent Doctor, I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and I was referred to Dr. Ahn. Dr. Ahn explained to me in great detail what my medical condition was and gave me options. Dr. Ahn performed the surgery and I am doing very well. I’ve been in recovery for about four weeks now and I feel so much better than I did before thank you.
