Have you seen Dr. John Desaloms?
July 6th, 2017Spinal fusion.
Had spinal fusion and disc replacement. The first procedure went well for the first three days,then after I went home I became ill, fever,pain and could not walk or get out of bed. Kidneys were acting strange. Could not control urine. Went back to the er. Waited several hours in severe pain. Finally did an MRI and scheduled surgery immediately. I was bleeding form the previous surgery 4 days prior. After the surgical procedure. I did everything the Dr ordered. Took over a year and I am still in severe pain. As of today I've developed a fever. Just not sure what's going on. Called Dr and he just sent me to pain management. Just doesn't seem right.

I was referred to Dr Desaloms after my herniated disc worsened considerably. I was able to see Dr Desaloms within a few days and surgery 4 days later. Dr Desaloms is approachable, very attentive, explained things well. His staff were very friendly and returned my calls promptly. I am still healing but that seems to be progressing well. I would highly recommend Dr Desaloms to family and friends.

June 1st, 2013DBS Surgery
Dr. Desaloms and his staff far exceeded my expectations during and after my Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. All my questions were answered whenever I had one and all my fears were laid to rest before and during the surgery. The care and concern they showed was extraordinary. I cannot say enough good things about the group. The staff and the Doctor are a well oiled machine that performed from my first visit through my after care. Highly recommend for the DBS surgery!!!

September 14th, 2012Dr. Desaloms is GREAT-- DBS Surgery
After two DBS surgeries that ended with system failures, I went to Dr. Desaloms. This is a very intricate surgery. He did a fantastic job, and I am functioning with Parkinson's better than previously. He explained everything thoroughly, has an amazing personality, and took tons of time answering our questions. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Desaloms-- clearly, he is among the best docs I have EVER been to!!! (Note: I think the picture you have of him is WRONG!)

My initial appointment was rescheduled 3 times. When I arrived, I waited almost 2 hours to see the doctor. I saw a nurse, then another, then the doctor, who all did the same 'tests' on me. When I tried to reschedule after over 1 hour had passed after my appointment time, the receptionist got an attitude. The doc spent 5 minutes with me and then ordered an MRI (he had one from 10 months earlier). I scheduled a follow-up, but then called to question if I really needed the MRI. No one called back. Today is my follow-up. I never heard anything, so I called to see if I should go. They never called to confirm, never returned my call about my questions, NOTHING.

Dr. Desaloms did a minimally invasive TLIF fusion at L4-L5 for me and I hit the jackpot when I was referred to him. I had previously been seen by an Orthopedic Surgeon who wanted to do the maximally invasive TLIF after an MRI. Dr. Desaloms also ordered a myleogram which pinpointed the problem and allowed him to give me the option that I chose. He is the kindest doctor I have ever dealt with...very concerned and totally "in the moment" when you are talking to him. He doesn't make you feel like he is speeding through his 5 minutes with you in follow up but takes his time. It has been a totally positive experience for me and has gotten the results we were looking for in relieving my pain.

I had another neurosurgeon who looked at my MRI for about 3 minutes and told me my problem was all in my head. Dr. Desaloms was referred to me by a friend - I went to Dr. Desaloms and he did everything possible to help me. I eventually had spinal fusion surgery to help my "problem in my head." Dr. Desaloms is extremely knowledgeable and has a wonderful bedside manner. I wouldn't have any other doctor perform surgery on my back but Dr. Desaloms.
