Dr. Ty saw my mother who had lumbar back pain. He was very thorough in evaluating her. He explained the cause of her pain and recommended conservative treatment options to avoid surgery. She started on a course of pain medications that worked for a time but then when they were no longer effective she moved onto a injection. That helped her dramatically. He has been monitoring her progress every since. Thank you Dr. Ty for being compassionate and patient with my mother.

I have to say Dr Ty is a great doctor. He performed my surgery anterior cervical discectomy with fusion. I saw and watched so many youtube videos I was scared. He did it with minor invasive and I was up that same night in my hospital room. I didn't require heavy medication and he was in to me early the following day of my surgery. He gave me the option to stay another night which I choose to since I didn't sleep well the night prior due to medication. I have since seen the PA and have nothing but great things to say for this TEAM!
I finally made the decision to go through with the surgery after a lot of prayer and thought. After a lot of research, I found the best man to help me with these issues. Dr. Ty from BASIC Brain and Spine Inst. in Orange Ca. I had seen different surgeons who were not very patient and spent very little time answering my questions. Dr. Ty and Dr. Oh of BASIC brain and spine were the first doctors to stop and listen to me and answer every question that I had about my condition and what my options were. I finally felt I had a sense of confidence in the doctors that I was dealing with. On my very first appointment with Dr. Ty and Dr. Oh, I had a really good feeling and I knew that I was in good hands! Dr. Ty made it as easy and as pain-free as he possibly could. He was very honest and explained the procedure to me in a way that I could understand. I'm doing fine now and am on the road to recovery. So "two thumbs up" Dr. Ty and a very special thank you to the BASIC Brain and Spine team!
I would not refer any patients to this neurosurgeon's office. I saw this surgeon for a back pain consultation and treatment in March 2013. He recommended tests and injections right away without taking a through medical history as well as the examination which was performed was brief maybe fifteen minutes. The physician diagnosed me with sacroiliitis which is an inflammation of the sacroiliac joint. He insisted on steroid injections. When I returned the next day to the surgeon for the procedure, afterwards he never explained the exact cause of my back pain or what else needed to be done. Then he walked out of the exam room abruptly. I over heard Dr. Thai telling his office staff to call and cancel all his appointments that day. When I tried to make a follow-up appointment with the doctor, I was told the doctor was on vacation for several weeks. I did not find his staff to be responsive to my medical concerns nor the other patient's needs.
Worth the second opinion consult. I have Kaiser insurance. Got a lot of insight about my spinal stenosis and option after visiting BASIC and Dr. Ty. I'm working on switching my insurance so I can have Dr. Ty as my surgeon. I was highly recommended to see him and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Took my mom to see him as a second opinion. I really like the fact that he explained things to us and laid out a roadmap of how treatment was going to look for her. He also showed us her films while we were there and explained what was causing her problem. We all appreciated that. The office on campus and jamboree felt like a spa. The whole experience was really good - excellent actually.
I'm grateful to Dr. Ty and BASIC for helping me with my mom. Dr. Blasko, Dr Jilani,and Dr. Leach we're all great in getting my mom better. We're glad our family doctor referred us here. Thank you all again!
