Dr. Lacin has done 2 surgeries on my back and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my back. He was attentive and friendly, and he got me in for surgery very quickly. His staff was amazing as well. I recommend him to everyone who is needing surgery. Thank you Dr. Lacin for getting me out of pain.

I could not have asked for a better experience! Dr. Lacin and his staff are the best of the best! I had a carpel tunnel release and a cyst removed in my wrist. After surgery, I received two calls asking how I was doing. One call was from Dr. Lacin! I was very impressed and would highly recommend Dr. Lacin (and his staff)!

Dr. Lacin repaired my disc herniation - it was done emergently as the condition came on suddenly and was threatening to cause permanent damage. Dr. Lacin and his PA are amazingly caring and responsive.

I would recommend Dr. Lacin for a microdiscectomy, NOT for a fusion. Dr. Lacin performed a lumbar fusion. 1 year and no relief. I was sent for multiple injections, told there was no identifiable reason for my pain, and that my bones were "definitely fused." Two other doctors, multiple scans, and a revision surgery clearly showed I was NOT fused. Furthermore, the hardware was not installed very well (it was loose). I believe Dr. Lacin cares for his patients, but get more opinions.

Dr. Lacin is wonderful. You can tell he really cares. He takes the time to listen to you and explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He is both an excellent surgeon and a caring doctor.

When we went for the first appt. he listened to my husband and explaned what he could do to help his back pain. He told us what he could help with and what he could not. Two weeks later and my husband had surgery and was pain free by the time we left the hospital two days later. Both he and his PA Kate were so easy to talk to, made you feel so comfortable. We will recommend him to friends and family.
