In the past 4 years I have had the misfortune of two failed cervical spinal fusions by other doctors, I had been told that my very painful condition might be inoperable. Dr Orisek reviewed my MRI and CT and immediately identified the problem and recommended minimally invasive surgery to correct the failed fusions. I felt better immediately after the surgery and continue to improve everyday. Dr. Orisek literally saved my life. His office staff is wonderful and a joy to work with.

My GP recommended Dr. Philip Orisek for my back problems. I went to see Dr. Orisek and it was determined that I had spinal stenosis in L3 to L5. I chose to have the recommended surgery. I am 3 plus months since surgery and want to say I had forgotten what life was like without back pain. Dr. Orisek is an incredible Surgeon! His entire staff is compasionate and caring about your well being. Thank you Dr. Orisek, P.A. Phil Lanum and the entire office staff for such excellent care.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I carefully screen each patient for appropriate conservative management before recommending surgery. When indicated, I believe in offering each patient the latest in minimally invasive spine surgery techniques tailored for their specific injury and anatomical needs. Each patient deserves the very best that science has to offer and nothing is too good for my patients.
