      I can't say enough good things about Dr. Thomas Dunn and his certified Physician Assistant, Richard Mateyka, PA-C. I recently had Lumbar surgery performed by Dr. Dunn and it could not have been a better experience, from start to finish, considering I needed surgery to correct a herniated disc. If you are in need of back or neck surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Dunn and his entire staff. You'll be in the very best of hands.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Dunn's Care Philosophy

      I have been fortunate enough to build an excellent reputation not only regarding the success of my clinical and surgical results, but also regarding my very conservative approach to spinal disorders. I strive to have an approachable personality and "bedside manner" because I emphasize patient communication to facilitate clear understanding of the patient's diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options, as well as putting my patients at ease regarding their condition.
