My neurologist referred me to Dr. Zannikos after discovering a herniated disc in my neck. I was extremely happy with him and his staff. He spent as much time as I needed with me and I was not rushed. He is very personable and answers all questions. I felt at ease with him when it came time for my surgery; Once the surgery was completed my pain was gone and I can walk normally again with no pain or weakness in my arms or legs. The feeling and strength in my hands and arms has returned. Very thankful for his help and efforts to get me back to normal

Wonderful! He performed both an emergency microdiscectomy and a fusion at L5S1. I feel fabulous a year and a half after the latter. He has amazing bedside manners and is very personable. I cannot more highly recommend him.

I have seen Dr. Zannikos on and off for many years for a variety of upper back and neck issues. I have had two surgeries with him, and I cannot speak highly enough of his competency, genuine concern for the patient, and overall professionalism. I recommend him all the time to any friends who have back and neck issues.

Dr. Zannikos performed a microdiscectomy on L4/L5 and L5/S1. The surgery was a success in my opinion, and I haven't realized all of the benefits yet considering I'm only 4 months out of surgery. Most important was how thorough, patient and kind Dr. Zannikos was and continues to be. He took time to answer all of my questions, which many specialists do not. He schedules numerous follow ups after surgery, which his office doesn't bill for but is considered part of the initial surgical costs. In this day and age, I'm always surprised when a doctor's office doesn't take every opportunity to rip you off. Bottom line, I can't recommend Dr. Zannikos enough.

I chose Dr Zannikos after 2 other consultations. He performed a less invasive L4-5 fusion for my problem and I was extremely pleased with its success. He was a good listener, very precise in his review of my problems and took time explaining the surgery and recovery to me. He was very patient to answer all of my questions before during and after the surgery. His entire staff were very professional. I also found everyone at the hospital very qualified and experienced and had no problems going home the next day. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I finally feel that I am back to being myself after 2 years of leg pain. The results of the my laminectomy surgery were great. Couldn’t walk a block without pain prior and within 7 days I was able to walk 2 miles. Very upfront about what to expect from surgery and results have been life changing for me. Easy to communicate with doctor as well.

I recommend Dr. Zannikos to everyone that has low back or neck problems. Dr. Zannikos performed lumbar spinal fusion surgery on me almost 2 years ago. I never had any problems or setbacks. I did fall on my back a couple of months ago and I went back to make sure the surgery was not damaged. Dr. Zannikos and his staff were so kind and concerned. After x-rays and a checkup, my back proved to be ok. I am so very pleased with the excellent work and caring manner of Dr. Zannikos and his staff.

There are no words that can explain how much Dr Zannikos has helped me with my back situation. He is very very caring, he speaks to you from a patient perspective, and has nothing but the best interest in making you better whether it's through surgery or otherwise. I have 100% trust everything Dr Zannikos says and I'm so glad to have been referred to him! Thank you for everything!

Dr. Zannikos is a superb doctor and a caring human being. I had microdiscectomy surgery after which my leg pain completely went away. I did however have issues with nausea with the pain medication I was talking after surgery. I spoke to him personally on a Friday afternoon and he made a few changes. He then called me twice (once on Saturday and then again on Sunday) , without me calling, to see how I was doing. His follow up was beyond expected and very appreciated!

Dr. Zannikos is very upfront and has always been very straightforward with me about my spinal problems and his care before and after surgery. He does not push you to make your choices the choice is yours if you want the surgery or not. He explains everything in very simple easy to understand terms.

Dr Zannikos was recommended to me by one of my neighbors who was suffering with similar back and leg pain as I was and had great relief of pain after surgery. he convinced me to see him and I immediately I felt comfortable with him and his calming demeanor. All my questions were patiently answered and after years of physical therapy and injections I finally decided to go ahead with a lateral fusion and screws. I am almost 9 months from surgery and I feel the best I have in years. Very grateful!

Very personable and caring doctor and the office staff is also very friendly. I am very pleased with the preparation and explanation prior to my surgery. After surgery it was easy to get a hold of him and the office for any questions, and I had many! I am glad I finally went ahead with surgery and even more so that I chose Dr. Zannikos. I would highly recommend Dr. Zannikos

Dr. Zannikos is awesome. I have many spine issues including cervical, thoracic and Lumbar. I've seen other spine doctors and had prior Lumbar surgery before seeing him. Dr. Zannikos takes his time, explains everything in detail, has a great personality and steady hands. He performed a 4 level ACDF in my neck that was a great success. I love this guy, he's an outstanding surgeon and would highly recommend him to anyone. On top of that everyone in that office has been a pleasure to deal with.

I was very hesitant about having surgery mostly because of anxiety. Dr. Zannikos talked very patiently to me, explained the procedure to me and that helped calm me down and make me feel confident that his procedure would help my pain. I recently saw him for my six month appointment and I am happy to report I am pain free!

Dr. Z performed surgery on my lower back to repair a ruptured disk that had kept me in agony for 11 months. The result was amazing. 7 months post surgery, I have no pain, only occasional aches, and I am able to play with the kids and dogs again.
