I had a lumbar surgery in Feb. 2016 & an unrelated cervical surgery in March 2017. I have had excellent results from both surgeries. I have been able to resume all my activities including daily exercising and full time work. There are days I still experience symptoms, but they are manageable.. Dr. Costigan is a gifted surgeon and if you do your part of the recovery you will have a good outcome.

Dr. Costigan the WORST spinal surgeon in SoCal in terms of patient safety. He has the highest surgical complication rate for ANY surgeon at ANY hospital in SoCal. He may be skilled, but he is apparently injuring patients while he rushes to cram in as many surgeries as possible, I suppose to become a multimillionaire? There is nothing more despicable in society than a surgeon who cares little about killing patients in his campaign to make more and more money. Just look at ProPublica.

If I could give negative stars I would. The first two appointments I had were 1.5 hour waits. The first time I saw Dr. Costigan, he recommended I have one cortisone shot in one area and if that didn't work then surgery, spinal fusion. I went and got three other opinions and all said I needed to try the cortisone shot in three places and at least three times before I really talk about surgery and there would be two options for surgery. So in my opinion Costigan is a little knife happy. He refil
After waiting an hour and 40 minutes finally left after I heard him go into yet another room. Anyone who over schedules to this extent is overly focused on the money and not the patient.
