Ratings for Dr. Tony Mork
Before I saw Dr. Mork, my back was a mess. I couldn't do much, I couldn't run, I could barely walk, I couldn't work out. After my surgery and the healing process i'm running 20+ miles a week, I am back to weight training but most of all, he gave me my life back. He is quite simply stated the best doctor i've ever been treated by. I never in my life imagined having this kind of life again. Thank you
Dr. Mork performed a laminoforaminoplasty on me recently and I cannot express how pleased I am! I am back to my regular activities and exercise and am so happy with my results, do not hesitate to call Dr. Mork if you have any back pain/spine problems he will exceed your expectations!
Starting 2006, I was having cramps and pain on my left leg. MRI suggested that I had Spinal Stenosis at L4-L5. Consulted local neurosurgeon as well as an orthopedic surgeon. Both talked about major surgery with 50/50 chance of success. Both were not interested in explaining their procedure. Found out about Dr. Mork from the internet. Sent them my MRI. He called and talked to me at length explaining not only what exactly was happening but also explained in details the procedure he would perform. With some hesitance, I went to his then office in Florida. First day he spent over an hour with me and my family explaining everything in details. One day after surgery, I was walking on the beach in Florida without any pain, leg or surgical! Ever since then, I had been mountain biking, camping, hiking and canoeing. I was 59 year old at that time. Recently, after Thanksgiving in 2014, I developed acute unbearable pain on my RIGHT leg. Again MRI revealed that my nerve at L4-L5 was pinched severely. On 12/30/14 I had Dr. Mork perform the Endoscopic Spine surgery. This time in CA. He was very compassionate about my repeat situation. Again spent ample time with me and my wife explaining everything. As this was a repeat surgery, he explained that the recovery time will be a bit longer (no walk on the beach very next day!). Surgery went well. Surprisingly, he made a house call to my hotel the following day. Spent over an hour again with me and my wife. He is very sincere, compassionate and most of all honest about everything. I am in my third week of recovery with absolutely no leg pain. After first week of rest, I am almost living my normal life. No pain what so ever. Of course I need to take it easy until I am fully recovered. Highly recommend Dr. Mork if you have any spine related condition.

I hope my recent experience with Dr. Mork will help those who suffered from cervical stenosis make decision in choosing the best option of treatment. I suffered from severe back and arm pain for five year after a bicycle accident. Recently, symptoms getting worse and all orthopedic neurosurgeons I have visited told me that I need an anterial cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) because MRI revealed that I had severe cervical stenosis at C5, C6 and C7 caused by the Herniation. I did a lots of home work online and realized that ACDF had a major consequence in about one third of patients years later, i.e., adjacent segment disease (ASD) that may lead to another surgery again and potential persistent back and neck pain probably in rest of my life. I think that is definitely not what I want. Searching online again, I submitted my MRI to several institutions and orthopedic neurosurgeons across the nation. Dr. Tony Mork was the only one responses immediately and set up phone interview the next day with me and my husband to review my MRI and discuss the plan of the surgery. He explained everything clearly with us about procedure and answered all the questions and concerns very professionally and patiently. Right after our phone interview and discussion, his nurse coordinated and arranged surgery very effectively. On August 19th, 2014, I had the endoscopic discectomy of C5-6 and C6-7 successfully. My back/neck pain and arm numbness dramatically went away right after recovering from anesthesia. This is amazing! I got two levels of Herniation removed at one time of surgery! I'm so happy to have such "life saving", simple and affordable surgery. My hard home work has given me a huge benefits in return... My friend learnt my story and joked "I"ll definitely have Dr. Mork do my surgery if I got neck problem...". Finally, I have only one word: Dr. Mork gets my life back!
Dr. is the one of the best doctor I have ever met. He understand what is the best for the patient and he has the best skills and the best experience to make his patient benefit the most from his surgery and treatment with minimal cost and suffering. His high quality warrant the high reputation as a best orthopedic surgeon in the world. My recent experience and outcome of the endoscopic cervical disk surgery of herniation was the evidence of what I commented above. Therefor, I highly recommend Dr. Mork to you if you have spinal disk problem and be told that you need disk fusion surgery!
Before surgery at age 71 I had to take a knee on the t box waiting my turn playing Golf. While shopping I could walk about 40 yards before I had to sit somewhere for awhile. I'm 73 now and playing 2 to 4 times a week from the white tees. I'm also skippering a 25' sailboat and racing once or twice a week without any pain! I work out 4 or 5 times a week. All this thanks to Dr Mork. He has perfected endoscopic back surgery. You can hardly see my tiny scar.
One of the most compassionate, knowledgeable doctors I have ever known. He even visits you at the hotel to change bandages the next day, he does it all. He gives you his cell number and you can reach him any time day or night. Woke up from surgery without pain that I had experienced for years. He is the best. He gave me back my life.
