Dr. Talac did an XLift on my spine in 2010. I had been told by every Dr. I'd gone to that there was nothing they could do. Dr. Talac was my last hope. My surgery went great and I've been pain free ever since. If I ever need more surgery I will go to where ever he is, he's the best!

Dr. Talac and his staff are amazing. They are so kind and tentative. Dr. Talac takes his time to explain everything to you. I never felt rushed or like my questions annoyed him. In a world of doctors with crapy bedside manner Dr. Talac is a breath of fresh air! I have and will continue to recommend him!

Dr. Talac did back surgery on me in December of 2014. He did surgery on my L4 and L5. I didn't get any better, and he said he had all he could do for me after giving me an injection in my back. In December 2014, I was in so much pain that I made an appointment with a Neurosurgeon. She did an MRI and xrays. She said that she didn't know what Dr. Talac did to me, but I wasn't the first one of his patients to come her after having surgery by Dr. Talac.
