Dr. Paul Maurer is a phenomenal person and neurosurgeon who is more than outstanding in his surgical skills, surgical outcomes, and follow-up care. He did a wonderful successful craniotomy on a large complex brain tumor in a difficult to reach skull base region where he removed ALL of the tumor and at the same time left me with no deficits or problems neurologically or physically, and I have been enjoying life for many years and am alive thanks to Dr. Maurer!

He said he could not help ne and there was nothing that could me done with my spine. A friend referred me to a NUCCA chiropractor on Monroe Avenue so I went there for a few treatments and have NO more back pain.

I would recommend Dr. Maurer, Unity Hospital, and the entire team without hesitation. After having spinal fusion with Dr. Maurer, I am pain free and looking forward to doing things I haven't been able to do for years. He is simply the best!!

I have been around the block and back as far as specialists go... I can say that I have never met a doctor as thorough and caring of my concerns.. I have broke my neck 2 times now and have been passed on by doctors in the boston area due to complex cervical issues... He told me all I need to know I will put my health in his hands.. He is a class act. Two thumbs up

I am on day 10 post-op from a L4-L5 fusion w/laminectomy. Dr. Maurer was able to do the fusion using cages (no rods or screws). I had immediate relief from the pain and numbness in my legs. The team explained every step of pre and post op so there were no surprises. I am healing well and feeling fabulous for the first time in nearly 6 years I can walk without pain. Why did I wait so long?? Great surgical team and wonderful nurses and support at Unity. Thank you so much!
