I am a precious 20 year neurotrauma ICU nurse with 3 national certifications. I know and expect a lot from my physicians. He delivered. I had an extensive lumbar fusion with lami, disc and vertebral fracture. Months of rehab. It’s now a lifetime of adjustment but he did a phenomenal job. Thanks Dr Renkins!

Dr.Renkens did a lami on l5 2000 and a spinal fusion in 2015 this man is by far the BEST. If he can avoid surgery he will. I would highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Renkens for giving me my life back.

I had my cervical fusion with Dr Renkens in 2012, I was an employee if ISG. However I was terminated from my employment 3 months later I never had a post surgical follow up with the MD. I called to reschedule my appointment before I lost my insurance and was just told no, and was hung up on. To this day I have permanent nerve damage resulting in numbness of my left arm and limited mobility. My current MD is trying to correct , it is almost impossible to do. If I had a follow up he would have been aware of the damage and it might have been corrected. Staff was not very nice after I was terminated in helping me. I lost a lot more than a job!

If you need a good spine surgeon, Doctor Renkens is the best!He does everything to find the problem and does not just guess. He did my double disc fushion on my neck and was successful. He definately knows what he is doing.

If you want a great neurosurgeon, Dr. Renkens wins hands down. He is extremely knowledgeable and has done two cervical fusions on me now. I can't recommend him enough!
