My left arm and shoulder went numb due to several pinched nerves in my spine. Dr. Soo did a spinal surgery and relieved the pinched nerves and the feeling came back immediately to my arm and shoulder. I am very pleased and happy that I found him to do the surgery on my spine. After four days the pain from the surgery subsided and I was back to work under two weeks. I would recommend him for spinal issues and surgery.

In my consideration and planning for an elective neurosurgical procedure, I found Dr. Soo direct and careful. His office support personnel were well organized, efficient, and professional.

Dr. Teck Soo is an amazing surgeon! I suffered an injury in Sept 2018. After months of restrictive duties and physical therapy; my weakness, pain and numbness were only increasing. I sought out a consultation with Dr. Soo and he spent a great deal of time with me explaining my MRI and options/outcomes. On March 6 2019 I had cervical spine fusion and am healing well. I expect it will take awhile to build my strength but I am in less pain and the sensation in my left hand has improved! 10/10!!!

Dr. Soo is amazing. He performed 2 surgeries on my Sister-In-Law that were highly successful, so I had full confidence in him for my Spinal Stenosis surgery. It was a huge success, the recovery description & pain level were exactly what he described. I would highly recommend Dr. Soo, he is genius at what he does.

Dr. Soo advised me that surgery was an option but it could be risky He suggested that i loose 60# and see how that works out imagine a surgeon that isn't in a hurry to cut makes sense to me

I have been in the medical field for over 30 years... I have been around a lot of doctors In that time... Dr. Soo is the most genuine Doctor I have ever had. And one of the most talented I have met. He has performed 2 Spinal surgeries and a carpal tunnel surgery on me. I would not hesitate to have him perform another surgery should the need arise. HE IS THE BEST!

Dr. Soo is a no nonsense doctor. Tells you exactly what you need to know, no B.S. which is greatly appreciated. When I have surgery that will eventually have to happen Dr. Soo will be the doctor doing the surgery!

I will start with the fact that the surgery went great. My #1 goal was to be pain free and 6 weeks later I feel great! Yes, his sense of humor is off putting to some but my goal was the surgery not the humor or bedside manner. 100% recommend!

Suffered a pinched nerve in my neck for over 5 months, finally referred to Dr. Soo. I found him carng, yet comical at the time I met him and with the pain I was in, I needed that. He told me I was a 20 minute fix; and if he was available, I would have at that moment. After surgery, there was pain from the surgery itself, but nothing like before it. I am so thankful as I heal, because I took not one pain pill. Today, is my 32nd day after surgery and still no pill. I thank God for him!

Dr. Soo is EVERYTHING wrapped up in one package. He is extremely experienced and knowledgeable and makes us so confident in his care. I trust his advice completely. I abhor arrogance and rushed appointments...he is none of that. He also has a compassionate nature AND a fun sense of humor. I was blessed to have found him in my extensive search and can’t even count how many fantastic referrals from his peers and other patients I received. Trust me. Schedule a consultation with him.

Everybody always says avoid back surgery....well I disagree. If the suspension on your car was broken would you leave it that way or have it fixed? If done properly by an expert it can give you your life back, as it did for me! I have been living with severe nerve pain for 7 years. The only thing that helped until surgery were epidural steroid injections into my spine. Unfortunately they were just a bandaid. My only regret is that I didn't have it done sooner.

The Best. Obviously extremely intelligent and a very talented surgeon. Probably does more surgeries every week than anyone in Mi. He really enjoys helping people relieve their pain. I had severe stenois, with a lot of pain in my legs. He gave me an accurate diagnosis and said he could do the repairs and I would have no pain. I came out of surgery pain free, no pills and walked without a walker the same day. Dr Soo has operated on the backs of my son, my wife and now me. Glad he does what he does

One month ago, he surgically corrected the pain I was having in my neck, shoulder and upper arm on my right side by performing an anterior cervical fusion. After I woke up from the surgery, all the pain was gone. During my follow-up office visit he took the time to answer all of my questions (and I had many). He is very approachable, humorous and has a great spirit. Dr. Soo is a truly gifted surgeon and I would definitely recommend him!
