Dr. Beatty leaves you hanging after surgery in pain. I've had four back surgeries all with Dr. Beatty, the first two were successful however he didn't assist with the post surgery pain. My third surgery didn't go so well, and after that surgery i was still in severe pain. Dr. Beatty did nothing to help me other than suggested another MRI. He found yet another disk fragment, and 8 weeks later I was having surgery again.. I would NOT recommend Dr. Beatty to anyone!

Dr. Beatty is an excellent neurosurgeon. He is clear, concise and has been completely successful with his recommended procedures to repair my lower back issues. His team with Overland Park Surgical Specialists + Sports Medicine and the surgical team at Overland Park Regional Medical Center are top flight; professional, competent medical providers of quality healthcare.

Loved him! I was referred to Dr Beatty, and very happy I was! He was very informative and spent a long time ensuring I understood my choices, even drawing a diagram on paper for me. He went over my MRIs with me so I could see exactly what he was talking about. He was very honest and didn't try to push me towards surgery. He thought maybe a rheumatologist could better help me, so he referret me on. Great bedside manner! I highly recommend him!

I have had three back procedures with Dr. Beatty. I am in the medical field and in my opinion his competence is at the top of the field and he is a true professional. I would highly recommend him and I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else for neurosurgical issues. I feel very fortunate to have had him for my care. His staff is great as well.

Dr. Beatty is the most amazing and gifted surgeon I have ever met--not only does he have a perfect knowledge of the back and brain, but he has a wonderful bedside manner/patient explanation of procedure. Dr. Beatty is a miracle worker. We are not going to have a neurosurgeon as gifted as Dr. Beatty for a long time! He gave me life!!

Very kind and caring Doctor. He was there for me when my health conditions were deteriorating fast. I am grateful I met him at the right time, all through diagnosis and surgery.
