What People Say About Dr. Peter Angevine, MD

I saw him for a second opinion following a laminectomy I had in 11/17 for my back. The surgeon resolved back, but I still had severe knee and groin pain a year later. He spent 10 minutes with me and recommend a spinal cord stimulator, because he couldn't figure out why I still had such incredible pain. Thank God I got another opinion from a local Neurosurgeon in Long Island who sent me for a hip MRI which showed a labrum tear. Being treated for that now, and feeling much better. Stay away!

Performed Surgery Dec 13, 2018 to remove large disk fragment causing "drop Foot". I obtained three opinions and while all diagnoses similar, Angevine spent significant time explaining the issues, the urgency, the procedure and the recovery, where others simply said "you need surgery", and spent most of consultation entering info in computer. 4 weeks later, I am 95% recovered, only required pain meds for 4 days, and felt all went exactly as described. Wonderful staff at hospital.

Peter Angevine is nothing short of a criminal. I had no nerve pain prior to surgery. He performed a spinal fusion and used a biologic called bone morphogenic protein, without my knowledge nor consent, he never mentioned it. It caused such severe nerve damage, I've spent the last 4 years of my life in total, unrelenting agony. 4 other spine surgeons were horrified by his "work" and attributed the damage to the use of BMP and his technique. I have a severe neuro disorder now. I'm not fused.

I was amazed by this doctor's willingness to retract surgery plans based on my arrival for a final meeting 5 minutes late in traffic-ridden Manhattan. All our plans, financial and personal had to be cancelled. I drove over 100 miles for this final consultation regarding the 2 weeks of caregiving post-rehabilitation. His withdrawal was abrupt, whimsical, and irrational, spending less than 5 minutes and then rushing off to a meeting. I felt a mix of insecurity and self-importance on his part.

A dear friend of mine referred me to Dr. Angevine. I cannot say enough about how highly I think of him. I lived with excruciating pain for a period of at least 10 years. My mother had gone through numerous back surgeries and none were ever successful. So my fear was that I would end up as my mom did. At the point where I could no longer live with the pain, I had to do something. Dr. Angevine is a god send. He fixed my problems. Still recuperating but doing great.

He was the first surgeon who correctly diagnosed the source of my sciatic pain and proposed the minimal surgery to do away with it. I went from hopelessness to a complete cure; immediate pain relief in my leg and healing from the surgery itself happened just as predicted.
