Dr. Langheinrich was outstanding.. I was in a bad four-wheeler racing accident and had to have 6 vertebrae fused together. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Doctor Langheinrich is phenomenal and I would recommend him 100%.

I saw Dr. Langheinrich for the first time in January 2017 and ultimately had surgery. I am so pleased with the outcome and have had no regrets. Everyone I've talked to notes that back surgery is iffy, but mine did what it was supposed to and I credit Dr. Langheinrich with how great I feel today.

Dr. Langheinrich is top notch. He did a wonderful job with my ACDF surgery - he told me what he was seeing, what to expect with the surgery, how long it would take, and what the recovery would be like. He is straightforward and direct. Note that he seems rushed - in my case he didn't spend much time with me at my appointment, nor after surgery. I was ok with that, I was more concerned with his surgical skill than making nice. His office staff is efficient and pleasant; I would recommend.

Knowledgeable diagnostician that found a tiny cyst on my husband's spinal cord that other doctors couldn't find! The cyst was causing horrific pain prior to removal surgery. Forever grateful!
in Elkhart, IN |
I had surgery six years ago and after going through a long time of recovery I am actually worse now than I ever was before. I was told that the procedure would better my life style and activity and it has only made it worse. If only I could undo this medical procedure I would, but the titanium in my back is there to stay. I live with chronic pain on a daily basis, and I am so tried of taking pain medicine. All I can say is think twice before having back surgery.
