Dr. Ahn suggested alternatives to surgery. He didn't suggest surgery as the only alternative - it was the last thing he said we should do. He recommended trying shots first. So far the shot has worked. I've been pleased with his directness and thorough knowledge of my problem.
in Milford NH |
Office very effecient, on time and courteous. Dr Ahn took time necessary to explain my diagnosis and options open to me for treatment. He is gentile informative and open to discussion.
in Bedford, NH |
Friendly atmosphere @NH Nuerospine. Dr. Ahn is a highly qualified physician in my opinion. I had 2 vertebrae out of alignment with spinal stenosis. My left leg was constantly numb, but it hurt trying to sleep at night. This was in addition to the constant back ache. Now 3 1/2 months after surgery I am doing excellent. Off all pain meds for the last 6 weeks, and back to work for the last 5 weeks. I'm very satisfied. My wife had similar surgery by Dr. Ahn 6 years ago and is still doing great.
in Seabrook N |
Dr. Ahn is the only Doctor who offered the possibility of a Laminectomy. I had been taking Steroid injections for pain in both legs. the Injections stopped working. I took the opportunity of his recommendation for this surgery. The pain in my legs has ceased to exist. I am looking forward to PT to regain strength and go on pain free!
in Berlin, NH |
First he is in the health net for Veterans. On the first visit he saw how much pain I was in and immediately set up a date for surgery the next week. I was very happy that he took the time to explained every thing about the surgery and what was wrong with my back and leg. I was very satisfied and Dr. Ahn and his staff were very through and caring.

Very professional, easy to understand, talks to & shows diagrams so people can understand. Great bedside manner & a good sense of humor. Makes you feel very comfortable. After many visits, not sure if I really wanted to go through with surgery, I became almost to the point where I couldn't walk. Dr. Ahn did my surgery May of 2016 & I now feel like a million bucks. No more back pain & I'm walking like I never had a problem. Thank Dr. Ahn & staff.
in Hooksett, NH |
Referred to Dr Ahn from my PCP when I loss mobility and use of my left arm with neck pain due to a pinched nerve. Surgery wasn't something I wanted to consider. Dr Ahn was very thorough in his evaluation of my issue and helped me explore other options, including Physical Therapy. Being an active person, Dr Ahn explained why I needed to be restricted in my activities to heal, so I would regain mobility and allow my body to return to full physical health. I am back to full use of my left arm.
in Merrimack, NH |
I was in such pain in my back and legs and finally my PCP recommended to see a specialist and I found Dr. Ahn. When I met him at his office he was the nicest and most kind doctor I have ever met he explained my back situation and I had surgery the following Wednesday (and my appointment was on Friday) he rearranged his schedule to perform my surgery and I cannot explain today 6 weeks later how wonderful I feel and pain free. I am so glad and thankful to Dr. Ahn for helping me get my life back.
in Londonderry, NH |
Dr. Ahn is an amazing surgeon in my opinion and experience. I went to Dr. Ahn after meeting with three other surgeons, Dr. Ahn was the most open and sincere about the procedure; I was in extreme lower back pain for over a year prior to going to Dr. Ahn. I was free of pain upon waking from the surgery. Dr. Ahn gave me my life back.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Ahn preformed a dissection of L5-S1 for me on 7/13/16. I met Dr. Ahn for consultation to discuss my current medical problem, I was diagnosed with a severe herniated disc at the L5-S1 and required surgery. At that time Dr. Ahn felt confident he could successfully relive the pain by removing the herniated disc to relive the pressure on the nerve causing me unbearable pain. The outcome was better than even Dr. Ahn expected, I was completely pain free immediately when I awoke from surgery.
in Hampton, NH |
I am 25 years old, and had a badly herniated disc, L5. Dr. Ahn Did great work on my spine. He was recommended to by Dr. Daniel Zipin after my nerve pain hit a really bad point. I spent 4 years in agonizing pain, and a full week of not being able to walk. I never thought I would ever need an operation, but it was breeze compared to the injury. I am grateful to have come across Dr. Ahn and his associates. I have a second chance to live a normal life again.

Very helpful an cares about you an your need's, also dose everything to help an keep you well taken care of, thank's for being so great.
in Manchster, NH |
Dr. Ahn is a genuine and caring doctor. Although I wanted surgery ASAP he made sure we went through all non surgical options first over about a year. When none of that helped it was time for me to have S1-L5 TLIF surgery. This goes to show he is not a cut first ask questions later surgeon. Dr. Ahn will kindly and calmly tell you what you need to hear and not necessarily what you want to hear. I have the utmost respect for him as a surgeon and human being.
in Goffstown, NH |
I went to Dr. Ahn with excruciating leg and back pain several months ago. He explained my MRI to me, and gave me the confidence to move forward with surgery. He was professional and compassionate. The surgery went really well and I would definitely recommend him!
in Manchester, NH |
I was admitted through the Emergency Room after falling. While immediate surgery was required, due to various complications with my medical health and preferences Dr. Ahn and I had to alter the plan. Surgery occurred three days later with serious complications. I know I put Dr. Ahn under a lot of stress. He did an outstanding job and my medical condition has improved tremendously since the surgery. Dr. Ahn is an outstanding surgeon. I trusted him with my life and would do so again.
Derry, NH |
I couldn't imagine a better experience having two ruptured discs operated on. Symptoms were gone post surgery and I was back to work in two weeks.
in Merrimack, NH |
Dr. Ahn performed my successful anterior cervical discectomy & fusion in March 2016. My quality of life went from miserable to fantastic. Dr Ahn was thorough & laser-focused. He took as much time as needed to answer all questions. He diligently looked at all symptoms & possible solutions. I waited too long to get medical attention & the surgery was more involved - Dr. Ahn stayed in the game & knocked it out of the park! I couldn't be more pleased! My heartfelt thanks to Dr Ahn & his team.
in Merrimack, NH |
I had spine surgery with Dr. Ahn in 2003. Here is 2016 and I have had not one problem with my back. He is a wonderful Dr. who has such great empathy for the patient. When I went to him in 2003 I was in a great deal of pain. I had 2 herniated discs and he scheduled surgery within 4 weeks. Prior to surgery my quality of life was going downhill fast. Since surgery I was able to start walking again and I have completed 9 Boston Marathon 26.2 Jimmy fund walks. Thanks DR. Ahn
in Nashua, NH |
I was in complete agony before my cervical surgical spine surgery. The level of pain I was in was completely unbearable. After viewing my MRI results Dr Ahn saw the amount of damage that was in my spine and quickly moved the office staff to put me in asap. Since my surgery in February my pain is completely gone. I have a few muscle cramps but I have made some dietary changes suggested by Dr. Ahn to hopefully have them go away as well. I am very overweight and was so afraid but he really helped!
in Manchester, NH |
I thought that Dr. Ahn is very professional. Went back to see him after six weeks of my surgery and he was very informative
in Bedford, NH |
Very professional, explained everything both good and bad about surgery. When I asked questions Doctor Ahn answered all of them without making me feel that I asked a dumb question. Surgery went perfect and follow up visits all questions answered. The email responce to questions that came up during recovery were answered within 24 hours. Over all I could not have asked for any better care.
in Candia, NH |
I have had two back operations by Dr. Ahn and have had no problems. I am very, very satisfied with his as a surgeon. My wife Carol also had back surgery by Dr. Ahn and feels the same way about him. We would both recommend Dr. Ahn as a great surgeon, with a very good staff.
in Manchester, NH |
My initial review of my condition with Dr. Ahn was very encoraging He was very thorough in explaining my problem and the procedure that could help me He was very friendly and confident
in Manchester, NH |
My experience was all positive. I had severe sciatica from calf to buttocks in my left leg for about six months which was ruining my quality of life. Dr. Ahn performed an L5-S1 spinal fusion on me which stopped the leg pain immediately after the surgery. Dr. Ahn, his Physician's Assistants, and his entire staff, were courteous and professional every time I saw them. My short term disability forms (from two companies) were submitted promptly. Thank You Dr. Ahn for giving me my life back!
in Atkinson,NH |
