Dr. Lehman successfully performed a spinal fusion surgery on me in February 2017 to correct my severe scoliosis. I was 23 at the time. I consulted with multiple surgeons and found Dr. Lehman to be absolutely the BEST in the business. I found significant curve reduction in each of my curves, and, most importantly, the curvature spine isn't progressing anymore. I grew one inch from this surgery and I l now live pain-free. Moving regularly, especially my spine has been a crucial part of my recovery. After the surgery, I began to align my life in the direction of fitness, to make sure that I stayed an active mover. I know have my own business as a private yoga teacher and personal trainer. Thank you, Dr. Lehman! You've given me a bright and happy life! Bless you!

Dr. Lehman successfully treated a severely herniated disc that had left me partially paralyzed. His treatment resulted in nearly complete recovery of prior function. He was direct, clear, and at the same time kind in his explanations from pre-op to follow-up. No complications from the surgery and it is going as well as i could ever expect.

I'm convinced that Dr. Lehman saved my ability to walk. I was experiencing weakness, some pain and a terrible time walking. The first surgeon I saw told me that he'd love to operate because he's a surgeon, but that he doesn't like anyone coming near HIM with a scalpel, but I could wait. I saw Dr. Lehman as a second opinion and he recommended surgery immediately. I was on the table a week later and, while I needed help getting into pre-op, but I walked out, albeit with a walker, on my own power the same day after spinal decompression surgery. I'm feeling great, with no infirmary, no pain and no weakness. If you need spinal surgery, DEFINITELY see Dr. Lehman!

Yes, I would definitely recommend Dr. Lehman to my family and friends. I was actually recommended by a family member who had surgery by Dr. Lehman. Words can not describe how grateful I am to be under his care. My family and I are forever grateful. I can't begin to describe how much my life has return after my surgery, compared to before the surgery where I was practically in bed all the time and the only time i wasn't was to crawl to the bathroom. It is not a life i would wish on anyone. Can't thank Dr. Lehman and his team enough for how much they have take care of me and my family member's questions and needs. Always available either in person or by phone and email. I always felt like i was only a click away from getting in touch with them. Thank you so much Dr. Lehman and team!

Dr. Lehman was great, he made me feel very confident and fearful of doing surgery on my spine. him and his team were exceptional. My procedure was a success and worry free. Thanks to Dr. Lehman I am no longer in pain. He was very nice and professional through the entire process. i really got the best care under Dr. Lehman.

After visiting many doctors I found my way to Dr. Lehman. After an initial consultation and follow up I felt that Dr. Lehman explained what was happening with my back, was very empathetic of my situation and how he could help me. I moved forward with a TLIF of levels L4/L5 L5/S1 in February 2019. Fast forward to Feb 2020 and I feel 25 years younger and back to normal activities. Dr. Lehman and his team are incredible. Everything from pre surgery to post and in between was handled with care and understanding and the results speak for themself! I highly recommend Dr Lehman and his team.

Never would I have ever wish to have spine surgery, but I'm so glad to be under Dr. Lehman's care. The anxiety, panic and questions were overwhelming. I cannot thank Dr. Lehman and his team enough for how well they took care of me. My surgery was beyond my expectation. I woke up from and the leg and back pain that was plaguing me for the last year was completely gone. I still have a little numbness, but that infinitely better than how it was before my surgery. I can begin to tell you have great it feels to be able to go outside without having to carry around a bottle of pain killers. Thank you so much Dr. Lehman and team!!!!!

Dr. Lehman and his team: NP Tarren, Nurse Christine and the rest of this team, were very competent and caring. They cared for my teenage son who was suffering from severely herniated due to a wrestling injury. We recommend this surgeon 100%.

I had surgery with Dr. Lehman 3 years ago to correct my scoliosis. Looking back I wish I saw Dr. Lehman earlier. Before my surgery I had so much low back pain and the sciatic pain down my legs was unbearable. I had tried everything from physical therapy to injections, nothing worked. His surgery really helped me so much. The leg and back pain is gone and my posture is so much better. I really have to thank him and his team for taking care of me. He came by to see me everyday and night, and his nurses were extremely helpful. 10 out of 10 would recommend Dr. Lehman.

Dr. Lehman is really amazing! I found Dr. Lehman through my neighbor who Dr. Lehman did surgery on his back with amazing result. I had so much back pain that I couldn't go anywhere or do anything. I was miserable. I can't believe the result from my fusion surgery on my back. Completely pain free now and able to do everything that I wanted to do before. I am so thankful of Dr. Lehman and his team. They took care of me every step of the way, from before to after the surgery, I always felt like I had someone guiding me. I highly recommend Dr. Lehman.

I can honestly say Dr. Lehman changed my whole life. I could barely walk, I was in so much pain. And now I have been pain-free for over a year. Dr. Lehman was kind and explained everything very thoroughly; I always felt like I was in very good hands with him. And when there was a post-surgical complication, he went the extra mile, coming back (I think) from vacation to perform a second surgery. I can't recommend him and his staff enough.

My experience with Dr. Lehman has been really great. The support of his team has been extremely helpful for me throughout my journey. When you’re experiencing chronic pain the isolation of it all can be very challenging. Having this group of experts as a panel for support has instramental with my recovery.

I had a very bad herniated disk that popped out and then went up behind the vertibrea pushing hard on my spinal cord.a I had been to several doctors before Dr. Lehman and they all agreed I needed surgery including a laminectomy and fusion, but Dr. Lehman felt I needed a much more basic surgery, only a decompression and diskectomy. Dr. Lehman performed the surgery on April 2, 2019. I entered the hospital hobbling on a cane, and the very same day I walked out holding my cane over my head in triumph. Three months later I was doing everything normally, running and doing weights at the guy. By the way, I'm 60 years old and they say it takes older people longer to heal but I thought I did just fine. By 4 months after the surgery, I had absolutely no signs or symptoms that I ever had the back injury or surgery. Dr. Lehman is a ROCK STAR SUPER HERO!! I would strongly recommend him to anyone and everyone with a back injury. Note he only sees people who need surgery.
