My first surgery with Dr Andalkar was in 2012 for neck surgery and he did a great job. Now I am going to him for neck surgery in a different area. Also after this I will see him for some back problems. I think he is very professional and a great surgeon.

Dr Andalkar put my mind at ease from the time I met him for a consult. I had been putting off the thought of yet a 4th surgery on my spine. This would be the 2nd on my lower back.. My fear sent me back for 2 additional consults. On my 2nd week post op I am feeling somewhat better. I'm glad Dr Andalkar was honest with me, and treated me conservatively. He's an awesome Doctor and I highly recommend him!!! :) :)

I had arachnoid cyst between t1-t2 removal. He was very professional, comforting. And made his incision perfectly to not mess up my tattoos. 6 years I've dealt with numbness and pain and frozen feet. Next day my legs hands and feet are drastically better. Highly recommend

Dr. Andalkar is amazing and so professional. I would recommend him to my family and friends. I had a Cervical surgery in Dec 2015 and it was a success. He's a great Doctor.

Dr. Andalkar is good at what he does and he has me walking better and things that have been numb for 10 years have since regained feeling. I am a high risk patient because of my lungs and a few other things but Dr. Andalkar said he would take me on as a patient despite the obstacles because he did not want to see me in a wheel chair. I am about to have my 2nd surgery with him as the damage in my body is extensive but the 1st one was successful and so I am counting this one will be as well.

Went to Dr Andelkar in 2006 & had a successful seven & one half hr surgery. Dr Andelkar had to place a back brace in my lumbar with the screws having to be placed every which way as my back was so messed up. Was told by Dr Andelkar that he would like to use my back problems in his work & teachings at the Ohio Institute of Medicine up in Ohio. I gave him my permission. I highly recommend Dr Andelkar for anyone with back problems
