Saved my life as I know it.

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 !

Dr. Sethuraman is a caring, meticulous and brilliant doctor.!

Dr. Sethuraman takes time to talk to you, explain the procedure and process in clear understandable terms. His staff is efficient and caring. I had a 360 lumber fusion and called the office every week after the surgery asking questions. The staff was kind, understanding and patient with me. I always felt better just hearing their answers and words of encouragement. I had neck fusion surgery with another doctor and now wish Dr. Sethuraman could have done it. The 360 back fusion surgery is not easy, but having it done by Dr. Sethuraman and his staff made it much easier!

The right solution to my problem

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!!

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.

Excellent Doctor

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.

I really feel comfortable here

From the receptionist all the way up to Dr. Seth, the entire team has done a great job of making me feel at home and comfortable. I’ve battled back issues for over 13 years and been to many places for help. I feel I am finally on the right track now.

Thanks to SPI and Dr. Seth, I now have relief from my chronic back pain. I used to have a bone overgrowth. It was pinching my S1 nerve which was extremely painful. But now I can do everything I used to do without any horrible back pain. I am running and even jumping again!AC
