Dr. Heim recently performed ACDF surgery on me. Every nurse, tech, doctor staff,etc that I met in my pre-op ranted about what a great Dr. Heim was and I must agree now post op. Every thing he described prior to my surgery is going as planned and I expect complete recovery. Immediately after surgery the nerve pain I suffered for 8 weeks is gone. I am so grateful for his care and as I was told before surgery he has soft hands and provides great care to his patients. I agree whole heartedly!

HE IS THE BEST BACK DR. THAT YOU COULD EVER ASK FOR, HE TAKES TIME AND YOU NEVER FEEL RUSHED.

Very upfront about expectations - I had disc problems repaired (terminology?)- excellent after-care and follow up support. L4 and L5 fused, no issues 8 years later. He had an excellent support system and I was walking the day of surgery, went home about 4 days after? Response to questions after surgery was really good- his explanations were very clear and helpful. By now his techniques are probably different but I was very happy with the results even after this time-
