Dr. Yuan is an excellent surgeon. He operated on me 6 mo. ago. I had a triple fusion of my lumbar spine. The surgery surpassed my expectations. He will honestly guide you and will not operate unless he is confident he can help.

He did my wife's spinal surgery five years ago, and it was a 100% success. He also treated me for sciatica that did not require surgery. Outstanding in all respects.

As a Health Care Administrator,Dr. Yuan failed to meet my expectations as a patient.He lacks empathy, understanding of the pathology of spinal health in the sense of evaluating a patient through protocol/procedural test such as mobility and sensitivity test. According to a seminar conducted in Mexico, 2014 on The Pathology of Spinal Health, a surgeon should not base there evaluation on images alone.Prevalent symptoms should not be down played by age butby lifestyle change/severity. whichhelacked

Dr. Yuan did surgery on Lumbar 5 slipped vertebrae. The surgery went great, I healed quickly and I would do surgery again with Dr. Yuan. Which I am as a cyst is now in the same area as the last surgery.... He has done everything in the last year to keep me comfortable. Now we both agree surgery is the next thing and our last resort! He always takes the right amount of time. He has a great staff and they always try to do everything to make the patient comfortable!

I've never had a physician more rushed than Dr. Yuan. This was an initial consultation on spine issues. I brought MRI, CT, X-rays, and various reports. He spent the last few minutes of our very brief appointment dictating his notes in the exam room. Nope.
