I have had great results with Dr. Didinsky. 3 surgeries on back with great results. Back surgeons have a tricky job and results are different for all. I can't say enough good about him.

I had spinal fusion surgery with Didinsky in mid-2016. Following that, I had 3 months of intensive PT with very limited positive results. Net result is that I am in a wheel chair most of the time with limited walking with a walker. I'm still holding out hope of walking with a new form of therapy I'm starting. To quote Didinsky, I would "come in one day for surgery, stay in the hospital overnight and walk out the next day!" That did not happen! Do yourself a favor if you're considering spinal fusion and go to someone who is an M.D. trained and experienced in this procedure!

My best advice, find another surgeon. I had TLIF surgery 31MAY16, paperwork said it would take 2 1/2 hours, my husband said I was done in a half hour to 45 minutes. I had a cage, rod and screws put in. Released, do not remember, was left with my husband in recovery, a nurse poked her head in my husband said, when I started gasping for air, but she did nothing. I don't remember the drive home, but I do remember about 10 minutes after getting home after surgery, my husband was on the phone with 911, I was unresponsive, turning gray. EMS came, the police came, they couldn't give me chest compressions because of the surgery, they intubated me, I woke up only because in a last ditch effort to save me, they gave me Narcan. We never filled the opiate prescriptions they gave us, didn't have time. I don't have opiates, the only way opiates were in my system was from the surgery and the 2 percoset they gave me. I then was taken by ambulance to the hospital, I was admitted and spent 5 days in ICU. The bruises I had on my back were UNBELIEVABLE! Looked like I was beaten. I was having heart issues, so I was under the care of a cardiologist while I was there, and left with something I never had before, debilitating migraines, and the loss of trust. I'm so lucky to be alive, my back still hurts, but I'm too petrified to go to another surgeon!

I have had two back surgeries and was very pleased with the results. I still have bad scoliosis, so all the pain is not gone, but it's bearable.

My husband went in for a laminectomy, within 1 1/2 years he had 4 surgeries! The last spinal fusion left him with the screws pushing on his nerves and he had what felt like electrical shocks and screamed out in pain about 20 times a day for a year. Then had to have the screws and rods removed. Lost his job because of being on light duty so much and we had to claim bankruptcy and go on food stamps. He's 50 now so very hard to get a good paying job, we still haven't gotten out of the hole.

Went for second opinion based on feedback and recommendation. Unfortunately didn't experience the listening and offering of good options. Within 5 min told have to deal with pain in neck. Offered cortisone shot in arm and if pain continued check shoulder. Avoided questions to address 24/7 pain in neck. When I said another Dr said failed fusion... he insisted surgery was successful. Left more confused than before going in.
