Dr. Getter gave my life back to me. After 4 failed back surgeries, I was highly recommended to see him. I could barely walk, stand, sit, or lay down without excruciating pain. Dr. Getter knew what was wrong. After hearing the most beautiful words that he fixed me, he was true to his word! Dr. Getter is a genius and he saved my life. My family has their mom, wife and Nana back!! Dr. Getter made me feel so much Better!

Dr. Getter is confident,experienced, with great bedside manor. My wife and I have decided to go ahead with my cervical surgery based on his ability to quickly access the problem from my tests and making a confident decision on a course of action. This inspires confidence in a patient like myself. His staff also is accessible for questions. He has the most efficient office staff I have ever seen. They set up clearance with my PCP and the hospital so fast all I had to do is show up!

Dr. Getter is an excellent surgeon with awesome bedside manner! He explains the procedure in full detail and makes the patient feel comfortable and at ease. I highly recommend him for any spine surgery procedures that you may need.

I have a history of lower back injury with 2 surgeries. Lately my pain level has increased past the tolerable state my numbness has been more constant and I had an episode of numbness on both sides of the body. Dr Getter may have looked at my MRI that was taken 13 months ago. He came to the room and started telling me that I was not a candidate for surgery. Never asked me how I injured my self and if I re-injured my self since the MRI over a year ago. No respect for the patient!!
