Had spinal fusion surgery in late Nov. All back, glute and leg pain is totally gone. Dr Weiner and his entire staff were outstanding. I had an excellent experience from beginning to end. I would advise anyone to use Dr Weiner if you need back surgery. You can rest assured that you are in good hands. Without question Dr Weiner is the best surgeon you are ever gonna find.

He sent me for an MRI only to take a quick look at it and tell me I had a "sprain." 5 minutes later, I left the office with no progress, a "treatment plan" of ice and heat, and so little information that I scheduled another appointment just to have him look at it closer and tell me in more detail what he saw. Longer visit.. Same conclusion. If Weiner can't help, he should direct you to someone who might, or at least say "I can't help" instead of sending you away without any progress or hope.

No follow up ! No help !Not informed about a lot of things
in Highland Village, TX |
Dr. Weiner performed disc fusion surgery on C-5, C-6, & C-7 in 1996. I have had two two physicians tell me they have never seen anyone who had that surgery, with my range of movement. Dr. Weiner is one of the best if not the best Neurosurgeon in the DFW metroplex. I was on the verge of paralysis and he gave me back my life.

I have been given a quality of life that I had lost because of my spinal problems. - spinal stenosis, ruptured disc pressing into my spinal cord. I had become a spectator to so many things in life Through the professional quality of care and surgery of Dr Weiner and his team he has returned to me what had been gone and deteriorating for years.
