Patient Reviews (56)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I had a laminectomy at L4-5 3 years ago and had NO pain or recurring symptoms until last fall. The doctor who performed that surgery has since left practice in Colorado Springs and his office (CSNA) failed miserably when I attempted to get a reexamination after waiting 20 minutes on hold. Their scheduler was extremely rude, so I said, "NO WAY" will I continue going to this practice. I'm GLAD I changed offices. I am 9 days post fusion with Dr. Stanton and couldn't be MORE PLEASED!! EXCELLENCE!
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Stanton, his PA Aaron and medical staff are caring, amazing and kind providers. They alleviated my fears and answered all my questions before and after my lumbar spinal fusion.
Calhan, CO |
Dr. Stanton recommended that I have a lumbar fusion. I was terrified to have the surgery done so I waited for one year till I was ready. The surgery was a success. I am so happy that I did the surgery. I am now pain free. If you need to have a lumbar fusion I would highly recommend that you have Dr. Stanton do the procedure.

I have been suffering with back pain for over 5 years. When I saw Dr. Stanton he was certain he could help. I was anxious about the thought of back surgery, but was at a point where my quality of life was below average. Dr. Stanton performed two surgeries to repair my back. I am beyond thrilled with the results. I can not say enough about what a wonderful experience it was. Dr. Stanton is absolutely the best!!

Dr. Stanton is a professional with whom I had the opportunity and pleasure to get to know when I needed back surgery for spinal stenosis, herniated discs and arthritis problems associated with my spine. From the very beginning he was easy to communicate with, and I could tell he was genuinely concerned about my welfare. After surgery the back pain I had been experiencing for years was completely gone, and I am once again back to normal and enjoying life to its fullest. Thank you, Dr. Stanton!

Great doctor, very personable and knowledgable. Would recommend him to anyone. Had severe pain and could not walk had lumbar fusion and feel like my old self. Better than in years.

He is thirough, highly trained and will answer any questions you have. I have had both cervical and lumbar spine surgery and both were successful. I give him my highest recommendation. Someone asked if I was going to get a second opinion, and I responded that his opinion was the opinion I trusted, and he was the one I trusted to do my procedure. If he thought I needed to see someone else, I know he would make the referral. CSOG and Colorado Springs are lucky to have him.!

Surgery went very well and his choice of procedures was perfect.
