    After extensive radiological evaluation demonstrated multiple points of spinal stenosis, Dr. Spitz performed 2 operations: a cervical laminoplasty and a T-8 laminectomy. The two months later a minimally invasive lumbar laminectomy. I am so happy with the results. He obviously is an incredibly skilled surgeon as well as a compassionate care-giver with terrific communication skills. He has also assembled a wonderful support/office staff. If you require neurosurgery, place your trust with Dr. Steven Spitz!!!

    Dr. Spitz is an incredibly talented neurosurgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. He performed a 4 level cervical spine ACDF on me, and the results were fantastic. I only had mild muscle pain after the surgery. You can tell that Dr. Spitz loves and has a passion for what he does as well! I would highly recommend him!

    I couldn't walk for 2 weeks prior to having Dr. Spitz perform my L5/S1 Discectomy. Now, I am 2 weeks post-op and I feel better then I have in years. I can walk, sit, stand, and even shower standing up. And the best part, get this, I can now put my underwear on standing up. Thank you Dr. Spitz.
