If you enjoy things like sensation in your legs & being able to walk... Then avoid this "Doctor" you won'the regret it.

Dr. Loft us was excellent. His diagnosis was correct when other doctors saw nothing. His surgery corrected my back problem completely, and my recovery time was even faster than he originally thought. Also, his chairside and bedside manner was excellent. His mild manner made me relaxed at all times. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Loftus is an excellent surgeon. He and his polite and knowledgable staff advocated for me, and my insurance company approved an artificial disc replacement at level C5/6 instead of spinal fusion. I was home in my own bed in a few hours and never had to wear a neck brace. I have more mobility now than before the surgery. I truly cannot say enough about this procedure or this practice.

Dr Loftus is awesome and I would recommend him to anyone. I have had back problems for about 5 years and all other dr said it wea arthritis but I went to Dr Loftus and he said I had slipped disc. He did spinal fusion on my back about 7 weeks ago and I feel great. I felt better the day after surgery

Dr. Loftus is an outstanding and professional neurosurgeon. He treats his patients with dignity and respect. He spends time discussing options and completely covers any and all concerns. His staff is unbelievably knowledgeable and professional, as well. I would highly recommend him.
Rockport, TX |
I would never recommend Dr. Loftus. He screwed my back up so bad. Due to him performing the surgery incorrectly by not cleaning the canal and leaving a gap between the two plates, inserting a screw and after hitting my nerve root removing it, I have nerve pain in my left foot and leg since surgery two years. He never told me any of this just that the surgery was a success and healing good. He wrote half truths of what I said during office visits. Never allow him to perform surgery on you!

Excellent experience with Dr Loftus. Performed minimally invasive disk compression. I label him the pain eliminator.
in Elgin, TX |
I had three bulging discs in my neck. After physical therapy, pain treatments I decided that it was time to do something else. I had been dealing with neck, head, shoulder and arm pain for years. Dr. Loftus and I decided it was time for surgery. Surgery was done on the 15th of Feb. and I couldn't be happier. Pain and numbness in right arm was gone. Neck wasn't that painful. Dr. Loftus and his staff are wonderful.
