Dr. Moazzaz performed a four level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion to correct the dangerous condition of collapsed discs, bone spurs and resulting extreme spinal stenosis I was experiencing in my 76th year. He did a great job treating this and I now have a newly restructured neck all bolted together with a titanium grid and bolts! The rehab process has been longer and more complex than I expected, but well worth the effort. Thanks to Dr. Moazzaz and his extremely helpful staff for making this major surgery go as smoothly as possible.

I was suffering from severe neck pain after being rear-ended by a freight truck doing 60 mph. I received little or no relief from pain management treatment. When I visited Dr. Moazzaz, he provided me with a very comprehensive explanation of what was happening to my cervical spine while he showed MRIs, and X-rays. His recommendation for spinal surgery was so clearly and visually supported I could see how important it was to intervene before my condition resulted in progressive nerve damage and

Dr. Moazzaz changed my life...from not being able to walk half a block to get my mail....to just finishing 8689 steps at day 18 post-op! I just wonder how he feels being an answer to numerous prayers...3 level ALIF performed with an incredible team of Doctors, Techs, Nurses..and a robot of course! If you have had enough, and are willing to follow directions, and get past your fears of the surgery needed...Get Dr. Moazzaz to give you a diagnosis and course of treatment..you owe that to yourself..

Dr Moazzaz is the finest spine surgeon I’ve ever met. Very patient friendly. I was brought in to the hospital on a gurney and able to walk. After replacing two discs in my back, I was walking the hallways the next day. I highly recommend Dr Payam Moazzaz

Dr. Moazzaz was amazing. He got right to the issue after my ex-rays were taken by Kraig; :) very humorous guy, but I felt less nervous about the exam. Gotta have some humor. Dr. Moazzaz also recommend me to Dr. Patel and pain doctor who is VERY kind and nearly pain free cortisone injections. You won't go wrong with both of these kind hearted and knowledgeable men

C3 through C5 herniation. Discectomy/fusion. Pain level: 9-10. Time of diagnosis (12/07/17) to surgery (12/22/17) was expeditious due to persistence of his office calling insurance daily for preauthorization. Surgery went perfect. His assistant, Erica, was outstanding in all ways. Communication with Dr. Moazzaz was exceptional, even answering text questions in rapid fashion (even during the holidays!). Exemplary medical care.

I was suffering from neck pain for years. I tried physical therapy. I took two shots of edpidural injections. None of that helped. Dr. Moazzaz explained my problems to me clearly, he answered my questions fully, and he addressed all of my concerns patiently. The surgery was performed for L4 to L6, & it was a success ! Dr. Moazzaz is more than a great doctor. He is a caring, kind, & gentle person, that shines through his work. The nurse is always courteous, I couldn't ask for a better team.

Neck broke, spinal cord and nerves compression, damaged disks, and sciatica pain was my companion 24/7, I was a mess. Several surgical procedures, some robotic at Tri City Medical, I have a renewed outlook on living. My wife and I now looking forward to retirement where we plan on travel, riding bikes, hiking, zip lining, etc. Dr. Moazzaz is truly passionate about his profession, exceptionally skilled and a very caring physician, I would not hesitate recommending to family and friends.

Dr. Moazzas answered all of my questions and discussed the x-rays and the results, which showed a complete success. He spent as much time with me as I needed during every appointment. His staff continued to warmly welcome us. Dr. Moazzas provided practical strategies during the surgery recovery and demonstrated that I was a person, and just a "number". What a refreshing experience. I was so satisfied, I was immediately recommending him and his staff to others. I received the best care possible.

An OUTSTANDING success! Dr. Moazzaz performed two spinal fusions, L4-L5, L5-S1, and a laminectomy. Arrived Friday morning 7:00 am for surgery. Woke up that afternoon, walked the hallway around 4:00pm--PAIN-FREE! Dr. Moazzaz always answered my questions, shared his knowledge about my condition, and the procedure. I always felt informed about my care. Debbie, his assistant, was patient, kind, terrific! Incredibly thankful for this successful surgery, and the gifted Dr. Moazzaz!

This doctor was outstanding! Little or no pain after major back surgery. Recovery time was remarkable. A year out from the surgery doing fine and problems resolved. If I had do do it over again he would be my choice.
