I met Dr. Traynelis in the ER at Rush University Medical Center, because I had bilateral subdural hematomas. He took great care of me. I couldn't walk when I came in, but was up and walking a day or two after my surgery to drain the hematomas. He's a great surgeon!

Dr Traynelis performed two cervical spine surgeries on me (c4, c5, c6, c7) and I couldn't be happier with him, his work, and his staff. He is very thorough and explained everything to me in a very clear manner. I highly recommend him.

Dr Traynelis has now performed 3 surgeries on me degenerating spine. He and his staff are the best. He worked me into his very full schedule as soon as he read my MRI report. I recommend to anyone who says they need a great neurosurgeon.
