Irvine, CA |
I recently had Anterior Cervical Disectomy & Fusion surgery by Dr Dennis and my excruciating nerve pain from neck to my arm/hand is completely gone. I am so grateful to Dr Dennis and I highly recommend him if you have similar pain. He is caring and kind doctor.

L3,4,5 Laminectomy, with a prosthetic insert and fusion. Third surgery in 20 years. From my first meeting in his office to the post-surgical follow-up appointment, Dr Dennis has provided expert care. As a Surgeon, he takes time to explain all steps of the procedure, answering all my questions, which is rare to find today. His staff, especially his PA, carefully monitored my post surgery progress, in the hospital and out, explaining what to expect. I highly recommend Dr Dennis.

It's been 30 years since Dr. Dennis performed surgery on my neck. I had a herniated disc between cervical vertebras number 5 and 6. He removed the herniated disc and fused the two vertebra. I woke up from the surgical procedure and the pain was gone for the first time in over a year. The pain has never come back. At the age of 70, my only complaint is that he didn't fix my golf swing. This guy is really good !!

Dr Dennis is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I have ever met. He takes the time to listen and truly cares about your situation and outcome.

Almost a year post surgery and I am very happy with the results. Although I was nervous about back surgery, I am so glad I had the procedure done. Down time was minimal and I have regained almost all of my ability and strength. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I had surgery and not to do something crazy that would put even a perfect back at risk. I am now 100% pain free and can walk like a normal person again. Highly recommend Dr Dennis and his staff and the outpatient surgery center.
