Best Experience

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

Excellent Doctor

I had a surgery at the miracle hands of Dr. Seth twice. Previously I was told that my case is too complicated and I would need many procedures to normalize my spine. But Dr. Seth solve my bad back in only two separate sessions. Thanks for all.

Excellent Doctor

A few months back, I was experiencing severe back pain. Even getting up from bed was a real task for me. But then a friend recommended to me the Spine Physicians Institute located in Dallas. I decided to see what the fuss was all about. I can definitely say it was the best decision I ever made. The service was awesome, the surgery was painless and the fees were very reasonable. I cannot thank you enough.

First class care and results

After nearly fifty years of playing the violin professionally in symphony orchestras I was left with a badly damaged cervical spine that caused debilitating chronic daily headaches for decades as well as many other troubling symptoms. Dr. Seth recommended anterior cervical discectomy with fusion and ultimately performed this procedure on discs C2 through C7. Following surgery my chronic headaches and other symptoms are gone, an outcome that borders on the miraculous. I could not be happier. A hearty thank you to Dr. Seth and the staff at SPI.

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!

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 !
