Dr. Cutler and his staff are a great team. Never had major surgery in my life, Dr. Cutler performed successful back surgery last year and successful neck surgery this year. You do not have to live in pain folks, we are blessed to have a neurosurgeon that has gifted hands.

So, when I met Dr. Scott Cutler in 1994, he said my procedure was 'textbook' and I'd have no problems. After ending my surgery early, Scott didn't come to the hospital room for days. On the fifth day it was discovered that I had an untreated surgical infection. Cutler said: It only happens in about 5% of the cases. After 18 procedures with various infection specialists, drainage surgeries, 5 months later, a rib was taken and hardware put in crooked. I couldnt walk, to this day I am crippled.

Dr Cutler saved my husband's life! I was extremely apprehensive when he was taken in to surgery with three crushed vertebrae in his neck. He could have been a quadriplegic. I got the floor nurse to call the OR and just prior to my husband's surgery, Dr Cutler came out and described in detail what he was going to do. He also promised to come out immediately after surgery and tell me how things went. He did exactly as promised, advised me that he my husband had movement and would be fine.
