Dr. Treadway and his staff are fabulous. Dr Tredway is an excellent surgeon and very honest. I am 75 had three vertebraes fused. I was aware that this is a serious surgery. Dr Tredway said, if the benefit wasn't worth the risk he wouldn't do the surgery. A week after surgery I was up and walking. Two months after surgery walking pain free for the first time in 3 yrs, off of narcotics. My life is looking bright and life is worth living again. Thank you Dr Tredway, Laura and staff..

Dr. Treadway literally gave me my life back! I came in with what I thought was just a herniated disk. He found a congenital defect called Bertilotti's Syndrome. After the initial recovery period, I can honestly say, I feel like a different person! I haven't woken up with hip pain in weeks and that is something that I had suffered with for years! I had no idea, that that too would be fixed in addition to the sharp, shooting pain down my right leg and into my foot. So thank you Dr. Treadway!

Dr. Tredway did a fantastic job, after 3 years of tests and shots I lost use of my arm. I was in pain 24/7. He removed 2 disc and put a plate in my neck. Pain is gone and can use my arm again. I would go to him again and would have my family see him.

Dr. Tredway is by far one of the most knowledgeable and professional physicians I've ever seen. He explains everything in detail without trying to confuse you, he's very personable and very nice. He makes you feel very comfortable and answers all your questions. I'd highly recommend him to anyone with any sort of back issues.

I highly recommend Dr. Tredway. He performed my back surgery May, 2014. He really cared about my condition and made me aware of what needed to be done. He shows that he cares for his patients and takes the time to listen to what they have to say. He does not rush the appointment. I carry his card with me at all times, and when someone says they need to see a good doctor, I give them his card. Many of my friends have gone to him and have had successful surgeries and they now carry his card.

Following surgery, Dr Tredwat was not helpful or interested in discovering why I was still having high levels of pain. Even at 6 months, he just said be patient. He did no test & always just blew off my concerns. I have had to find another neurosurgeon @ Swedish Orthopedic Institute to address my concerns. The doctors & staff at Swedish are much more caring, with excellent follow up.
