      He treated me with great respect
      in Jacksonville, IL |
      I had Dr. VanFleet when I had my first surgery for a Herniated Disk in my cervical spine and Dr. VanFleet went above and beyond my expectations!! Highly recommended to anyone!!
      in Springfield IL |
      Dr VanFleet is the best of the best. He's treated me twice for 2 separate conditions. First for a discectomy which felt immediately better in recovery. Wish I had the surgery earlier! Dr explain my options and why he felt the titanium disc was the best choice for my relatively young age & family longevity. Second condition a herniated lumbar disc. We've chosen to wait on surgery and treat the pain with epidural injections. This has greatly reduced my pain. Dr weights all options before surgery.
