Dr. Aguwa is outstanding! Very professional, understanding, takes the time to go over any and all questions that you have as many times as needed. I was incredibly hesitant to have a needed spinal fusion and he completely put me at ease. Recovery was quicker than I expected and everything went perfectly. I wish I had done this surgery years ago. I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Aguwa for any future issues and have already recommended him to several friends.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Aguwa. He truly cares about his patients and providing the best care for your individual circumstances. Dr. Aguwa said I was a good candidate for surgery but we could try to resolve the issue first with PT and Cortisone shots. After 9 mos. of PT, three cortisone shots and drastically altering my lifestyle, I decided I was ready for surgery. Dr. Aguwa was so supportive and encouraging through the entire process. I am back to by active lifestyle!

I was suffering nerve pain in both legs for a couple of years. Dr. Aguwa listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. By the time I decided to have the back surgery, I felt that I would be in good hands. My back surgery was a success. I recovered well, and was able to move around in less than 3 weeks. Thanks to Dr. Aguwa's expertise and his office support team!!

Dr. Aguwa goes above and beyond for his patients. After seeing my MRI he advised me I would need a lumbar fusion to stabilize my spine. However because of my advanced age (75), and other medical issues, I was reluctant. Dr. Aguwa recognized my concerns, he did not pressure me to have surgery, instead he suggested physical therapy and pain management treatments. In September I had the surgery and I am now pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Aguwa to anyone needing back surgery.

Dr. Aguwa is a magician! I’ve dealt with back pain for several years. Over the past 2 years my quality of life was at times miserable. I spoke with several doctors and received no relief. I met with Dr. Aguwa and instantly knew he was sincere and truly cared about helping me! It’s been only 5 weeks since Dr. Aguwa performed my surgery and I have ZERO back pain!! I can’t remember a time when my back felt this good! Dr. Aguwa is an amazing doctor who truly cares and saved my quality of life.

Dr. Aguwa is THE MAN! After a 3 year battle with lower back pain and loss of feeling to my right leg, I am completely pain free within just a few short weeks of surgery. He and his entire team were very informative and kept me relaxed through a stressful time. I'm very thankful for his steady hands and a fantastic outcome!

Dr. Aguwa has an excellent bedside manner. He made me feel welcomed, spent time listening to me about my back and leg pain, went over my X-rays and MRI, and discussed the best treatment options for me. He explained that he likes to be as conservative as possible, but for me, I ended up needing surgery. He described the surgery and hospital course start to finish and put me at ease that he would take great care of me. I would recommend him to anyone with a spine problem.
