Dr Maurer is amazing. If you need any kind of back surgery, or might, then you need to see him.
in Dansville NY |
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!!

Dr. Maurer has the greatest bedside manner; always reassuring and compassionate!!! A God send for me!!!
in Black creek ny |
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!
