Dr Rosenbaum saved me from being paralyzed frm the waist down because of his experience several years ago, I complained about severe back pain most doctors didn't take me seriously, he reviewed the MRI and stated that the dixmsc had ruptured in to the spinal canal, he said 24 to 36 hours before I would become paralyzed, emergency surgery did an amazing job. Thank you

In 2002 I got lower L5/6 Back surgery from Dr. Rosenbaum and have had a pain free life the past 15 years due to this gifted man. Last month I was rear ended at 60 mph and have a bulging and torn disc @C3-5 I will be seeking his expertise on this injury and it will give me a chance to thank him. He had his Dad assist on my surgery in 02. His family's dedication to pioneering back surgery speaks for itself. Dr Rosenbaum is the best in the business.

Outstanding Surgeon! I wish more medical providers did things like he does. He was kind and communicated in a very direct manner As his patient, you communicate with HIM. Not an RN, MA, PA or anyone else He personally called us back for the consult. I felt like I was in very experienced and confident hands. My surgery was a success and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Rosenbaum!

I had an l4/l5 microdiscectomy 8 weeks ago. The surgery was a breeze. Dr Rosenbaum was recommended by several physical therapists. I have made an easy recovery. If you want a touchy, feely doctor you might want to look elsewhere. If you want a skilled surgeon Dr Rosenbaum is the one.
