He relieved my back pain and ruptured disk that had caused me pain for ten years. And most importantly he did it non-invasively and did not make my back unstable....causing the need for more surgeries. He is personable, and helpful and very caring. He even called to check on me after surgery in the evening. I highly recommend anyone with a disk or back issue see him before consenting to fusions, screws, rods, cages, and all of the other nonsense for their backs.

Dr. Adelman is one of the best surgeons I've worked with. He is friendly, open, and knows his stuff. I won't let anyone else work on my back. He also does the least invasive treatment that is needed.
