      Rude, condescending, un-compassionate to say the least. Says he "wouldn't do the surgery if I didn't think I could help you", and then the surgery doesn't help. Then says "let's do a fusion - I wouldn't do a fusion if I didn't think it would help you". Trust him - no way.

      I have neurofibromatosis, a condition that has no real treatment and back in May of 2015 I was hospitalized with a tumor that cover my 1-4th vertebrae. By the time I went into the NICU for surgery I had already lost the ability to walk and use my hands and arms. I was resigned with the possibility that I would be a quadriplegic, but at St. Josephs, Dr Theodore performed surgery and I've recovered and am ability to do the things I thought I'd never be able to do again.
      in Chandler, AZ |
      Would not want to go to any other neuro surgeon. He's the best in every way: before, during and after surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
