I highly recommend Dr. Woosik Chung for back and neck surgery. He did spinal fusion on my cervical verte- brae and my entire spine. It was complicated because I had so many things wrong that were causing me severe pain. Both surgeries were about 8 hours and I was advised it would take at least a year to recover. I am in 9 months of recovery and glad to say the surgery was a great success. Dr. Chung is the best. He was always courteous and caring with me as was his entire staff.

employees rude, unhelpful, uncaring, which Dr. Chung seems to encourage
We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call Cheryl Fay, Practice Manager at (303)-762-3472 so that we can get further information to address the situation.

Dr. Chung performed cervical & lumbar fusions on me in 2013 & late 2015. I appreciated having a doctor who listens carefully and does not rush through appointments. He patiently answered all my questions and explained options and procedures. My recoveries were as expected with no complications. My back pain is almost completely gone; my mobility is increasing by the month. I am completely satisfied with my outcomes and would recommend Dr. Chung.

After playing 12 seasons in the NFL, my spine is a wreck. I've seen doctors across the country, none of them clearly diagnosing my issues. I always felt as though I had more problems than I had been notified of. After researching many specialists in Denver, I decided to see Dr. Chung. He is a brilliant doctor who takes his time explaining his findings in detail. He is a true gentleman and answers every question you may have. It's obvious he truly cares about the well-being of his patients. A+++

Dr. Chung performed a redo Anterior Fusion with an added Posterior Infusion of C3-T2 as well after a failed Anterior Fusion one year earlier of C3-C5 with another Surgeon. At time of presenting to Dr. Chung I had severe spinal cord impingement causing severe pain, numbness of both arms and hands, unequal hand grips, loss of motor function in both arms and inability to recline without increased severe symptoms. Dr. Chung is highly recommended to be the Surgeon of choice for neck surgery. Pat

I did a lot of research. I discovered Dr Chung is the spine surgeon that physicians choose for their surgeon. He is the Director at Porter Hospital Spine Institute. His surgical success rate is impeccable. I have acquaintances who are mfg reps for joint replacement appliances. Dr Chung has a great reputation with them too.(They’re the ones who have the inside info.)Patient education and providing options is Dr Chung's top priority. I had a very successful Anterior Cervical Fusion.
