My surgery went very well and my recovery (two weeks after the procedure) is going better than expected.

Dr. Lutz listens to what you have to say, then gives his opinion regarding your best treatment. This instead of giving out pills.

He is the only person I would trust with my spine. I went from a life where pain was my own reality to a life filled with possibility. Thank you Dr. Lutz for your quiet expertise.

I met with Dr. Lutz to be examined for the cause of my chronic back pain. He was very thorough and took the time to review my X-rays with me, discuss my issues, and patiently answer all of my questions. Exceptional care.
