Dr Rovner did back surgery on me about 20 years ago. He is awesome. If I would ever need another orthopedic surgery he would be the only doctor I would allow to perform the procedure. Awesome.

I really won’t recommend him to any one else. My outcome of the surgery did by him turned out a twisted vertebrae between c4-5 due to C5 position being twisted when he placed an artificial disc.

I would highly recommend Dr.Robert Rovner for anyone who has been suffering lower back pain and has tried everything possible to manage the incidious pain to avoid surgery.He carefully evaluated and diagnosed the problem and said he could help me out surgically. I had the recommended surgeries just one month ago. I was in the hospital 3 days. The only thing I have discomfort with are the healing incisions. I no longer have Lower back and paralyzing left leg pain. Recovery is going well.

Success!! That's what I have to say about Dt. Rovner. I am 8 months post op and I can now do activities I haven't done in 10 years. After seeng 4 other surgeons 10 years ago in the beginning I decided to follow his direction and process prior to back surgery. Thank goodness I did because with my surgery completed now, only having 2 plastic disks w/6 screws holding them in place, the success I have been experiencing with my healing has been fanstastic!!
