Dr. Hess is absolutely the best. We truly cannot thank him enough.
Pure health did an awful job of referring me to him/ passing the ball but he himself was a very professional doctor with attentive staff.
I was having extreme sciatic nerve pain caused by a synovial cyst in the L4-L5 area of my spine. Dr. Hess performed my surgery on February 13, and I was able to get up and walk the following morning, and was discharged from the hospital. My sciatic pain was greatly relieved following the surgery and I was able to return to work after about two and a half weeks. I am now pain free and all numbness that I was experiencing in my left leg has been completely resolved. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends and to anyone that is suffering from back pain. He is an amazing surgeon and I cannot thank him enough for the change that he made in my life. May God Bless this wonderful man and the work that he does in helping others.
Dr. Hess tells you like it is and I appreciate that. He did an anterior cervical fusion on me in 2009 that was a great success. I am now going in for laminectomy thoracic 1/2. He was upfront about what results may or may not be. As a retired nurse, I checked him out thoroughly before my first surgery. In my opinion, he is one of the top neurosurgeons in the Kansas City area.
Dr. Hess is a very good doctor. Had a very serious back problem and only took one pain pill after surgery. Was back at work in 5 weeks.
Dr Hess has performed 2 lower back surgeries, one 11 years ago and the other 10 days ago. All the time Dr Hess has been professional and caring. The first surgery is a huge success and causes me no pain or problems. The second surgery I imagine will turn out like the first. I had immediate relief from a herniated disc and stenosis in another. I awoke from surgery with none of the pain from the the mentioned problems. The only pain I have now is a slight pain from the incision and muscle pain from walking with good posture vs barely walking
He is a great surgeon but to get someone on the phone is like pulling teeth...ugh
Had a 5 level 7 hour fusion surgery. He did an excellent job and pain is mostly gone. He had to repair damage from a poor surgery I had 12 years before from another doctor. He is a very busy Dr. but makes time for his patients and knows what he is doing. God bless him.
absolutely without a doubt the best possible experience. Dr Hess did a wonderful job in reliving my pain with a terribly difficult surgical proceedure.
Did a 7 hour, complete lumbar fusion and stenosis surgery, he did a terrific job. My back pain has pretty much gone (7 mos out).Office staff is great.
Dr Hess saved my life and provided full, normal function for a neurological problem experienced in 1997. He recently operated highly successfully on herniated disks. I give him the highest marks in all aspects of his care and skill.
Dr. Hess was awesome, he gave me a prelim. diognosis ran a spinal mri and got right to the trouble fixed it and I am good as new. I can tell when its gonna rain but the pain is gone.
