2 weeks after Laminectomy surgery, the recovery and pain relief were as good as expected. I would use Dr. Nesterenko again and recommend him to others.

Dr. Nesterenko was very thorough with his visits. He and his staff took the time to explain all options and possible outcomes. I enjoyed the fact that he allowed me to make the determination if surgery was the best for me, that is with his sound medical advice. I have immediately noticed a complete improvement in my lower back pains and problems. I will certainly recommend Dr. Nesterenko and his staff to any one else I know that is having these type of medical problems. Thank you so much Dr. Nesterenko and staff at Grace Clinic/Hospital

I cannot recommend Dr. Nesterenko highly enough! If you need an orthopedic surgeon in Lubbock, Texas he is awesome. I had a microdiscectomy in June 2019, and I feel like a brand new person. My only problems since the surgery are pacing myself when it comes to activities. I feel so good and want to do so much I have to be careful not to overdo. I was very nervous about the surgery, since my parents had some really horrible surgery related problems. Dr Nesternko and his staff helped me relax beforehand and I couldn't have asked for better results. I believe Dr Nesterenko really cares about helping his patients get back to leading normal lives. Everyone told me not to have back surgery in Lubbock, to go somewhere else out of town. For me, that really wasn't an option. I believe Dr Nesterenko has a great education behind him and knows what he is doing. I would use him again, and recommend him to everyone.

I came to Dr. Nesterenko because my knee would collapse and I would fall. I needed surgery on lower back. Dr. Nesterenko was very thorough in explaining the procedure and took ample time for our questions. After surgery gave my wife detailed report. Dr. Nesterenko is a delightful person. I recommend him without hesitation. ??

My wife needed to have her fourth spinal surgery for a fusion. Dr. Nesternko was very good talking us through what was happening, what our options were and managing our expectations. When we were able to get tests done faster than anticipated, he worked to get our surgery moved up and approved through the insurance. Surgery was great, and he (and his team) were just as great at the 2-week follow up appointment. Would highly recommend.

Have been on a journey with the nerves in my lower back for over 9 mos. Finally saw Dr. Nesterenko. He was very helpful, answered all my questions, discussed what was next. Never have I had a doctor so thorough on the first visit. Very comfortable during the appt to the point I told him at the end I actually enjoyed this doctor visit.

Had inital surgery to fuse C6C7 with a plate, cage and screws on Dec. 7th. Saw PA 2 weeks after surgery with Dr. Nesterenko coming in too. Then 3 months saw PA again but not Dr. as he was busy with another patient. Next visit is June 4th of 2019. Had xrays both visits beforehand.

My husband and I felt like Dr. Nesterenko was very knowledgeable about what was going on with my husband’s back. Before, during and after the surgery, he treated us well and kept us very informed. We would use him again if we needed to.

Dr. Nesterenko performed surgery/fusion in September on L-4/L-5, inserted pins and disc. I had immediate relief of excruciating pain. Little things like sneezing without pain and tears, big things like standing upright by the end of the day without pain. I've needed no, NO, pain meds. not even Tylenol. Praise God. And thank you Dr. Nesterenko. Also his staff (office and hospital) are wonderful. Every question I've needed to ask have had quick response, for which I'm also thankful.

There was never a time after my first meeting with Dr. Nesterenko that I didn't have hope. His confidence was more than enough to know I found the right Orthopedic Surgeon. I was definitely lost and felt as if my life and professional career were no longer something I could manage and the pain had taken control of my life. Dr. Sergiy Nesterenko gave me my life back. For the first time in 4 1/2 years pain does not run my life. Thank you to the entire Grace Clinic Team and God Bless!

I would like to Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Daphne Oreilly-Flores, Dr. Miles Day, and Dr Sergiy Nesterenko. I had a microdiscectomy L4-L5-S1 procedure roughly a month ago. I was unable to walk and needed assistance. Once I woke up after the surgery I could walk once again with hardly no pain at all. Today I continue to recover and push forward to a full recovery, but most of all my prayers were answered by these gifted individuals. Once again THANK YOU dearly from the Lopez Family

My father recently had surgery for a lower back herniated disc with Dr Nesterenko. We could not have been any more happier and satisfied with how him and his staff treated us. He tried everything before surgery to try and not put him threw it. I recommend any one to take the trip to speak with him. Thank you Dr Nesterenko for everything! God bless you and your wonderful staff.

My father was in excruciating pain from a multiple issues compressing his spinal nerve. It was to the point that he could no longer walk or even stand. Dr. Nesterenko did my father's surgery and now my father's nerve pain is gone and he is walking again. Dr. Nesterenko, the hospital staff, and everyone at Grace took great care of us from day one through the entire surgery process. I didn't know what to expect, but I can say I am so glad we went to Grace, our family is happy with the outcome.

I have found Dr. Nesterenko very knowledgeable about spinal disease and the appropriate corrective actions required to rectify each specific problem. He takes a conservative approach and does not recommend unnecessary surgeries. I have recommended him to my colleagues at work and would not hesitate to recommend him to my family members. He and his staff have really worked hard to be sure I have obtained the best possible post operative care and medications.
