What People Say About Dr. Paul Glazer, MD

Dr. Glazer operated on me to correct my scoliosis in November of 2016. He did 3 operations over 3 days. These surgeries were life-saving for me. The hip pain I had made it difficult to walk prior to the surgeries. Now I'm working full-time and doing well. Dr. Glazer did the surgeries that other surgeons told me couldn't be done. I'm so grateful to him.

Dr. Glazer saved my life! He gave me feeling in my feet that I haven’t had in over 6 years. I’ve been suffering for 22 years and I’m only 37. I almost ran away and backed out several times only because I was so afraid. I had a spinal fusion and I’m SO glad I did it and even more happy I chose him as my surgeon. His entire team was beyond amazing! Best decision ever!

Dr. Glazed did my surgery about 8 years ago in Boston. I am a medical professional. Took my lower back pain away. I will forever be grateful!
