I had lost faith in surgeons and started calling them butchers. But a friend recommended SPI to me. They listened to my problem with attention unlike my previous doctor. They believed me when I said I was in pain and not just delusional. Their treatment fixed me just like new. I am thankful to them for restoring my faith.

From the receptionist all the way up to Dr. Seth, the entire team has done a great job of making me feel at home and comfortable. I’ve battled back issues for over 13 years and been to many places for help. I feel I am finally on the right track now.

Dr. Seth, saved my back a year ago. I was in constant pain and no remedy worked. The surgery went smoothly and my pain was managed well. I have continued to recommend Dr. Seth, because he gave me back my quality of life and gave my kids their mom back.

Dr. Sethuraman takes time to talk to you, explain the procedure and process in clear understandable terms. His staff is efficient and caring. I had a 360 lumber fusion and called the office every week after the surgery asking questions. The staff was kind, understanding and patient with me. I always felt better just hearing their answers and words of encouragement. I had neck fusion surgery with another doctor and now wish Dr. Sethuraman could have done it. The 360 back fusion surgery is not easy, but having it done by Dr. Sethuraman and his staff made it much easier!

He did L4/L5 fusion. Damaged nerves on both my legs. UTSW doctor on second opinion said wrong surgery for my symptoms. I am still handicapped and very limited in my activities. Left on vacation on the second day of my surgery with no back up while I lay in hospital with both my legs can not move. Very selfish.

I drove down from Oklahoma after beoing referred by multiple friends and my doctor who Dr. Seth had helped. I had been suffering from years of back and leg pain and could not stand or walk for more than 15 to 20 minutes at a time. I had surgery 6 weeks ago and am now 85% improved of my pain and am slowly regaining my strength where I can now walk and bend again. I have already recommended Dr. Seth to other friends. I felt the whole staff was exremely caring to my needs.
