I had back surgery Monday April 24th. Prior to my surgery I had an evaluation meeting with Dr. Falatyn. He explained in detail what he saw on my MRI and what needed to be done to correct my back problem. He also touched base on what to expect post surgery. He was right on the dot with everything he said during this evaluation meeting. I consider him a top surgeon in his field and would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

I have recommended Dr. Falatyn to many people. He correctly diagnosed my back condition, and I needed 2 very complex surgeries within a week to completely address the problems. This was only 3 months ago . For the first time in almost 20 years, I am pain free! I sleep through the night and am walking longer distances than I have ever been able to do. Dr. Falatyn is a problem solver, and he approaches the problem in many different ways. He is kind, compassionate and gave me my life back.

Dr. Falatyn combines professional long-term knowledge with excellent patient care. I highly recommend him.

When I suddenly began experiencing severe back problems (couldn't walk) Dr. Falatyn was on-call for the emergency room. He took the time to understand my perspective on the situation and calm my fears and was extremely patient with my insistence that, before I made any decision, I wanted to check him out with my personal physician -- who gave him the highest marks. He was similarly understanding with my desire to go home, rather than to a rehab facility. His follow-up was also wonderful

Dr. Falatyn is more concerned with his expertise (scoliosis ) than with patients symptoms. My back fusion (T12-L4) from 4 years ago is a total failure and has left me with more issues than before surgery. He was proud of straightening the curve but failed to address the issues at L4 L5. I am now disabled with permanent nerve damage in my feet, constant pain when standing and walking. My opinion is to see a neuro surgeon if you need spine surgery.
