Dr. Onan is both kind and professional. His staff and team are wonderful. He also referred me to a wonderful neurosurgeon. I intend to complete my rehab and PT with Texas Orthopedics sports and rehab after the upcoming surgery.

I was in so much pain that walking and standing were almost impossible. Yet I kept putting off surgery because I had heard too many stories of surgeries gone wrong. Dr. Onan was recommended as the one with the best hands. I was not disappointed. I’m was back at work as a kindergarten teacher in a month. The pain is gone! Dr. Onan does have the best hands in the business!

Wonderful pre- and post-operative care. Dr. Onan took time to go through my options and had me have injections before we determined surgery was the best long-term option. The procedure was successful and the doctor will continue to monitor my recovery.

I had one visit with Dr.Onan He looked at my X-ray prescribe physical therapy and some meds. Made some notes and left the room. I didn’t know we were even done with the appointment. Next thing I was being shown where to check out. Not sure how I feel yet . I have severe lower back pain due to bone on bone in my discs lower spine . Cushion is gone. I’ll try therapy and meds and see what happens I guess . No follow up appt was scheduled : I have been dealing with this degenerate back disc for 5 yr

If your spinal health deteriorates to the point where you need orthopedic surgery then you have two choices: Employ the services of an experienced, expert surgeon like Dr. Onan and get your problem solved, or ... take your chances with something much more uncertain. The choice is yours.

In October of 2018 I underwent surgery by Dr. Onan. He did a lumbar laminectomy at L5-S1 and cleaned up some bone spurs. This was a similar surgery by a different surgeon 10 months earlier that was unsuccessful. But this time with Dr.Onan I got total relief from pain. I am 4 months post-surgery and I’ve returned to my normal activities at work. I’ve also been able to return to my passion of racing standup paddleboards. My total experience with Texas Orthopedics and Dr. Onan was a positive one.

I have suffered with lower back pain and sciatica pain for years. Dr. Onan and his staff were very attentive and took great care of me. He is a good listener and the first Doctor who has offered me something other than pills to get me back on track. I recommend Dr. Onan and his staff highly to anyone with back pain.

I had been suffering with chronic back pain for more than 15 years at L5-S1. Dr Onan did a spinal fusion ANTERIOR, which means he went in through my belly, not my back, because this approach has better results. He had a vascular surgeon scrub in to open and close, and now, I HAVE NO PAIN! Dr. Onan was so kind, understanding, professional, non condescending and I trusted him IMMEDIATELY. If you are lucky enough to get him to operate on you, you are in the best hands possible!

My experience with Dr. Onan and the entire staff at the Barton Creek office was top notch! Kristin greeted me with a smile and made check in easy and welcoming. Kole took me back to a room and prepped me for the doctor. He was kind and thorough. Dr. Onan was knowledgeable, professional, and caring. I knew I was in great hands. Carey scheduled me for my procedure quickly and was patient and informative. I highly recommend this group!

Exceptional Doctor - trained to be the very best. So fortunate he became a Surgeon & obtained the knowledge to complete my 2 cervical spinal fusions in my neck + a 3rd lumbar spinal fusion. Other Doctors advised me his operations likely prevented me from becoming paralyzed from the neck down. As well, there have been improvements in pain/function since the surgeries. Dr Onan is awesome, kind & a very talented Surgeon. He works with other exceptional Surgeons & his staff are wonderful & helpful.

Dr. Onan discusses risks and benefits of different treatments on a way that is easy to understand. He is an excellent surgeon. He has done two different surgeries for me, both with near-miraculous results. Additionally he is a very caring person.

Dr Onan is one of my favorite Drs. And I have many! He listens and asks my opinions on things. He truly seems to care and wants to do the right thing for me. Last years lumbar surgery turned out great with no problems. I totally recommend him as a person and a surgeon.

I highly recommend Dr. Onan and appreciate his attention to my diagnosis, taking time to explain the procedure and his dedication to excellent care. Being pain free again is a blessing and I am thankful to Dr. Onan. Knowing I can call Texas Orthopedics if have any issues is comforting. And, he always assures me to come see him if I need anything. Thank you, Dr. Onan!
