I had a Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion L4-5 surgery performed by Dr. Soo , after another Doc had twice operated and made things successively worse. Tech and his team made it right and I am without pain for the first time in 7 years. Bavo!

Dr. Soo performed a spinal laminectomy on me 4 weeks ago. I had been having severe pain in both legs for months and nothing was helping until I had the surgery. My leg pain was gone immediately and my recovery has been going so well. I was fearful of having back surgery but am so happy with the results and I am grateful for Dr Soo.

My only regret is that I didn't have the surgery sooner; I spent nearly 2 years using alternatives that simply did not give me lasting pain relief, including steroid injections, chiropractors, massage therapy, physical therapy, I did it all to no avail . Dr. Soo performed an L4-5 fusion surgery on me (58 year old male) on October 4, 2017. I had immediate relief from sciatic pain that ran down both legs 24/7. I was walking the night of surgery and went home the next morning. No need for "at-home" skilled nursing care, I was completely mobile -- and off pain medication -- within the first week. I have been walking on the treadmill, swimming and doing strength building exercises for my "core". I am very happy with the outcome of this surgery and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Soo others.

As a practicing physical therapist for 32 years in the area, I hear a lot of talk about the good, the bad and the ugly from my patients. I repeatedly heard about Dr. Soo and what a wonderful surgeon he is and saw the outcomes of his patients that were referred for PT. It was only natural that when my spouse required a spinal surgery , Dr. Soo was my surgeon of choice. My husband's surgery was flawless and the recovery and outcomes were much better than anticipated. We appreciated his honesty and humor and of course his expert skill in the OR. We recommend Dr. Soo, if consultation or surgery is in your future. 10+/10!!!

I had a Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion L4-5 surgery performed by Dr. Soo on Nov 28, 2017. Before the surgery, I had experienced the sciatica pain in my left leg for 18 months, and the pain later expanded to both legs for 6 months. The surgery is a complete success, and I returned to work 2 weeks after surgery. I had no pain in my legs. Dr. Soo is very skillful in performing complex spinal procedures. The methods and devices that he developed are the best in his field. Dr. Soo has a very good sense of humor. He is very honest and straight forward when discusses treatment options. You can trust him fully. I highly recommend Dr. Soo.

Dr. Soo is a very professional and experienced surgeon. We did a lot of research and interviewed 3 top candidates. He developed the most comprehensive corrective action plan and performed it perfectly. We went with a posterior cervical decompression and fusion C-3 — T-1 . Wonderful results and pain relief.

Dr Soo performed a spinal fusion on me C4 through C6. The results were amazing, he saved me from permanent spinal cord damage. From the first visit Dr Soo and his staff were compassionate and efficient. I wouldn't trust anyone else to work on my spine issues.

I first visited Dr Soo in 1999 with horrific pain in my lower back and leg. After fusion of the lumbar area I was up and about with no pain the next week. Three more similar occasion followed wth the last one occurring in 2013. Each time Dr Soo knew what was needed and performed with excellence and extreme compassion. His staff was always efficient and compassionate. I am thankful for his skill and desire to be the wonderful Doctor that helps his patients have productive lives again.
