Great!

Dr. V fused my lumber spine on June 16, 2017. Before seeing Dr. V, I could not walk with constant pain. After surgery, I am able to walk and have no pain. Follow up is great as well as the staff. Fantastic !

Moved to Colorado Just for Dr. V

I wanted to specifically thank Dr. Villavicencio and his PA Eric Busch. I was diagnosed with a severely herniated disc between my C5 and C6, creating significant pain and numbness in my left arm/hand. I met with a couple of surgeons in Florida - where the injury occurred - and all recommended removing the disc and fusing my neck. As a very active 31 year-old, I was extremely worried of future complications from fusing my neck at such a young age. Subsequently, I made the decision to move to Colorado after learning about Dr. V and the success he's had with partial foraminotomy surgeries, rather than disc removal/fusion. Dr. V and his amazing team were able to perform the foraminotomy back in October 2017, I immediately felt relief and regained feeling in my arm and hand upon waking from surgery. Now 3 months later, I am completely pain-free, the numbness is gone, and best of all, I still have all my discs! I cannot thank Dr. V and his team enough for literally saving my life. The level of compassion and professionalism is second-to-none, and I will forever recommend Dr. V and the rest of BNA to everyone I meet!

Awsome Results

Dr. Villavicencio performed my Transforaminal Lumbar Fusion (TLF) on L4-L5 on April 20, 2017. The results are miraculous. I am essentially pain free, I can stand as long as I like and walk as far I want without pain. Best of all, I can bicycle and do all the things I could not do prior to surgery I am thankful to Dr. V and his team. All very professional. I feel as though I received the best care possible and the absolute best results.

I cannot recommend Dr V any higher

I have been suffering from debilitating back pain for over three years. I had my 1st microdiscectomy in 2014 by an orthopedic surgeon, after being bed ridden for almost three months. This surgery greatly helped, but the pain was still there (2-6) and after a couple of years it got to the point where my life was being impended again. I setup an appoint with Dr Villavicencio near the end of 2016. We went over a couple of options but decided to go with another microdiscectomy. Post-surgery I found he also shaved off a bit of my vertebrae to allow more room for the nerves. It’s now been four months with almost no paid, only 2-3 after a full day of skiing and my legs were more sore than that. I cannot recommend Dr V any higher! He has given me my life back and also relived a lot of negativity in my family, caused by the chronic pain I’ve been in for the previous few years. Looking forward to dirt bike riding seasons starting soon!
