Dr. Radcliff and his staff are the best they truly care about the people they help. You can not ask for or find a better team or Doctor. And the staff that works with Dr. Radcliff are very helpful and caring. Going to Rothman was the best decision for my health.

Dr. Radcliff performed an ACDF on me in March of 2016. I was VERY pleased with the outcome, The burning, stinging and numbness in my hands that Zi had suffered with for months, was completely gone upon awakening from the anesthesia. I had absolutely no pain during my recovery, so I required no pain medication. Dr. Radcliff provides a pamphlet prior to the surgery that explains the complete procedure, from patient preparation, his procedure, including photos of the actual surgery, through what to expect through recovery. He is very patient and answers all of our questions, most often responding by phone calls which he personally returns. In addition to my ACDF procedure in 2016, I am currently awaiting my surgery date, 5/7/2018, for a lumbar laminectomy and fusion. As before, I find his staff to be very accommodating and considerate, and I’ve received the same kind of information packet for this procedure as for my last surgery. I go into this surgery feeling prepared, and I have every confidence in his skill as a surgeon. My husband, a brain tumor survivor, and I, consider ourselves fortunate to have him as my surgeon, and to know him as a friend.

Dr. Radcliff performed ACDF surgery on me in early March. I felt very confident in his surgical skills and very pleased with the outcome. Although there are variables with any medical procedure,I always felt he provided reasonable expectations and probable outcomes.I recently recommended him to someone else with a very similar problem as mine . Thank you Dr Radcliff !

Dr Radcliff is an amazing professional who is unbelievably talented yet friendly and down to earth. I had major neck surgery in 2013 with Dr. Radcliff and I've never felt better in my life! Don't think about it, just call him!

Dr. Radcliff was punctual, personable and completely honest in his assessment of my spine problems. He answered all questions honestly and to our satisfaction. The follow up information was very helpful and of great help in making decisions. I highly recommend him. He does not rush you into a surgery which may not be in your best interest in the long run.

I believe in a conservative, balanced to patient care. With individual patients' goals in mind, all avenues and alternatives to surgery are explored before surgery is considered. If surgery is necessary, I will perform spine surgery utilizing the safest, most effective, least invasive technique tailored for each individual patient. I have experience performing the most complicated spinal trauma and deformity surgeries but I also have a particular interest in less invasive types of cervical and lumbar surgery when appropriate. I would like to thank my patients for providing feedback that will be shared with others. Your feedback is critical to enable us to continuously improve patients' experience in my practice.
