Not good ! Oct 2018 he claimed he could fix everything. I came out of surgery with a distended lower abdomen that will cost me $11,000 to have fixed, left leg shorter than my right leg, a bubble butt, and I never had a butt in my life, my left hip pops on a regular basis so that’s going to be another surgery, and oh by the way did I mention the T8 is now threatened By the spinal canal narrowing on it? So much for one last surgery and now facing at least three for other problems that were created. Never again

Will not be returning. Dr was impatient, unsympathetic and rude. Worst bedside manner of any Dr we have ever encountered.

Dr Anton removed my large benign brain tumor, I am happy with how the procedure went and also his communication and care of my situation. He is still in touch with me as I have had to get more procedures done concerning plastic surgery.

Absolutely not recommended. The guy didnt even spend five minutes with me OR touch my back before he declared it broken, said I had splondy and needed a fusion. I dont have splondy. I have perfect alignment of all vertebrae in all positions. I was operated on in an emergency 2 days after seeing him. How did you miss cauda equina syndrome? HOW? Numb crotch. Barely walking. Severe pain. But hey everyone has buldges AS I SAT THERE CRYING: huh?

Dr. Anton was a very professional doctor with trustworthy knowledge. My only problem was that he was impossible to get a hold of. He only goes to the hospital I go to once a week and with many patients it was extremely hard to get an appointment. I would call and leave several messages and it would take weeks for his office to get back to me. I want a doctor that is available, that is why I am trying to find another surgeon. I have been living with constant pain for over 2 years.

Fabulous doctor! I have been in severe back pain for a few years. Had a spinal cord stimulator placed in. A Lumbar & Throaci laminectomy, by another. Dr, no relief. Had been very limited to any activities including walking. Spent most of my time in bed and on pain meds. Dr, Anton gave me my life back. I had a 3 level Lumbar fusion. I'm 6 months post opt. Pain is minimal and I'm enjoying life again. His bedside manner is excellent. The hospital staff was wonderful. I would recommend him to you!??

Miracle worker! Made my husbands life beyond better. A 7 1/2 hour surgery, 2 rods, 10 screws, and a bracer plate and me can walk unassisted. No more falling, no more incontinence, no more purple feet. Wonderful doctor, wonderful staff, and the best hospital we have every experienced.

Very disappointed. Was told that I would be as good as new after back surgery within 2 months, and now after 3 years I am having the same pain that I was told would go away with surgery.
