Dr. Sinicropi is a butcher. He has ruined my life along with many others that have not posted anything or are in such bad shape, can't. He immediately jumped me to a C2-C7 cervical fusion 3 yrs ago. According to him at the time, there was no other options, although at the time, my problem was not 5 level. His quote was 'let's just get the whole thing done now. WHAT A MISTAKE! This man does not consider PT or anything other than to fill his pockets with $$ and an ego off the charts.

I fell 12 feet from a ladder, spent 2 wks in ER, receiving pain killers. Released & told it would heal. It didn't. Pain was at 9-10 level 24/7; couldn't sleep, walk, drive... Finally I researched best Neurosurgeon's & found Sinicropi. He immediately diagnosed problem as a severe disk herniation. After same day surgery, using a new technique, Sinicropi removed a large portion of disk, I was pain-free in a week. Sinicropi isn't a hand-holder, but a brilliant Dr. & surgeon. So thankful to him!

Después de sufrir mucho dolor con mi enfermedad de espondilolistesis nada funcionaba hasta que el Doctor Sinicropi me atendió y me opero de una fusión lumbar anterior y posterior ahora después de 7 meses me siento excelentemente bien a mis 46 años, la cirugía fue un éxito. Lo recomiendo por su trato con tanto respeto, profesionalismo y su diagnostico certero. Lo recomiendo ampliamente mi vida es ahora después de la cirugia que me realizo libre de dolor.

I booked an appointment with Doctor as he came recommended to me by my Physical Therapist. When I book an appointment with an experienced Doctor, I expect that appointment to be honored and to be able to see a Doctor, not a PA. But the Doctor did not show up. I asked why, and the PA said that he was managing my case per the Doctor. Doctor apparently made the decision my case was not worthy for his time, pushed me onto PA. Made another appointment with Doctor, pushed onto PA again. Terrible.
Only met with him for 3-4 minutes during an explanation of what my surgery would entail. Surgery was at Greenway surgery center and the staff was inconsiderate. Was let out still under the affects Of anesthesia. And never spoke with Dr. Sinicropi about how the surgery went. The staff at Midwest spine was no better as I still had issues and they did not seem to care. I am worse off to this day than before I had surgery.
