Dr. Meagher treated my 89-yr old father after a fall which created a cervical fracture. He performed a Laminectomy Surgery on him. The thoroughness in troubleshooting the injury, the recommendation and explanation of the procedure, and the outcome of a successful surgery was very impressive. Simply put, the man knows his stuff. I would recommend him to anyone finding themselves needing these services. Well done Doctor. Thank you!

I saw Dr. Meagher at Laser Spine Institute in Wayne, PA. He is intelligent, thorough, explains things very well, and is very down to earth. He legitimately has the patient's best interests at heart. If I require another back surgery, I will definitely seek him out, regardless of where he is practicing.

I was suffering from horrible leg pains due to spinal stenosis herniated discs and spondylolisthesis. Dr. Meagher first came to me in the pre-op and apologize for not meeting me sooner. He assured me that all would go well which it did he then called me the day after surgery after the post op and apologize again for not meeting us in person. This was impressive in itself. He is a proven professional and I would recommend him highly to anyone who has any type of spinal problems.
