The staff and physicians in this office are truly saviors to me. From the love exuding from the wonderful Savannah who greets me, to the amazing and knowledgeable Dr Seth, who is the only reason I'm walking today. I had no where to turn when I came here. And, thanks to them, I can at least STAND and fight the effects of my connective tissue disorder. I'd recommend them 1000 times over.

I had an age related injury that was causing me to loose the feeling in my legs as well as the ability to use the. Not to mention the pain but with my back fusion I am able to work again. Hold my grandkids and enjoy outside activity again. I am a healthcare worker and sole breadwinner so as far as I am concerned they saved my life. God bless them !

Lynn D. – Aug 09, 2021
After nearly fifty years of playing the violin professionally in symphony orchestras I was left with a badly damaged cervical spine that caused debilitating chronic daily headaches for decades as well as many other troubling symptoms. Dr. Seth recommended anterior cervical discectomy with fusion and ultimately performed this procedure on discs C2 through C7. Following surgery my chronic headaches and other symptoms are gone, an outcome that borders on the miraculous. I could not be happier. A hearty thank you to Dr. Seth and the staff at SPI.

John G. – Mar 25, 2021
I had a surgery at the miracle hands of Dr. Seth twice. Previously I was told that my case is too complicated and I would need many procedures to normalize my spine. But Dr. Seth solve my bad back in only two separate sessions. Thanks for all.

There was a time when I had given up all hope of having a good life. I had been in a car accident and received grievous injuries. Almost every institution had given up hope on me being able to walk again, without help. But, my prayers were answered when I went to Dr. Seth.

Esther Reid – Nov 17, 2020
He performed a spinal fusion on me with no imaging or tests. I have been told by several doctors since that a fusion was not necessary and a minimally invasive procedure would have been a better option for me. He was not looking out for my best interest. Years later I am still in pain because he left the segment below the one he fused with a herniation. He offered to go back in with another surgery and fuse that segment as well. No thank you! I do not recommend him at all.

My operation was a great success. It was virtually a painless experience. I was up and capable of walking around 2 days after the surgery. I felt such vigor and energy in my body that I had not felt for 6 years.

I had a previous surgery done a MISI and the doctor there had a one size fits all approach which did not work for me. I came to Dr Seth to see if I had to go through life in pain from the subpar repair and he said NO! He went over the procedure he could do for me and made sure I understood. We did the surgery about a month later, right away I could tell a big difference between the surgeries I had. I no longer feel fragile like I did after the previous surgery. The hardware put in place in the Dr. Seth surgery is far superior to the “hardware” that MISI had used. I was in far less pain when I woke up from Dr Seth’s surgery than I was with the previous surgery. After both surgeries I was able to walk several hours after the procedure but with Dr Seth’s I was in so much less pain and getting out of bed was so much easier. I really think Dr. Seth cares about his patients’ well being and recovery. You are not just a assembly line procedure like at MISI. The staff is great too!!

A few months back, I was experiencing severe back pain. Even getting up from bed was a real task for me. But then a friend recommended to me the Spine Physicians Institute located in Dallas. I decided to see what the fuss was all about. I can definitely say it was the best decision I ever made. The service was awesome, the surgery was painless and the fees were very reasonable. I cannot thank you enough.

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.
