Have you seen Dr. Andelle L Teng?
THE doctor for my family and loved ones.
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Andelle L Teng - Posted on December 24th, 2017
Dr. Teng has operated on my spine and on 4 members of my family and extended family. Others in my family have had prior surgeries with other spine doctors and we now only go back to the one that we trust the most. He takes time to teach, explain, and actually shows us our spine x-rays and MRI. He says there are no guarantees with spine surgery but we've all done excellent under his care! The only complaint is that at times it takes a long time waiting to be seen but when he spends all the time with you in clinic it's understandable why he runs late.

Thank you Dr. Teng for giving me my life back. It’s so wonderful to be able to walk again without pain. Dr. Teng will listen to you, answer your questions, will not rush into surgery but if surgery is needed he is an excellent conservative, compassionate, surgeon.
Dr. Teng and his team are absolutely the best

I was sent to see Dr. Teng after having 3 spine injections that helped but did not last. I had back and right butt pain shooting down my right leg clear down to my foot. I decided to have the recommended spine surgery. After having a year of this pain it was amazing to finally have relief! By 3 months after surgery I was back to hunting and fishing again! Dr. Teng and everyone on his team are the best!

A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Andelle L Teng - Posted on March 15th, 2014
I had spine surgery in 2007 and after my surgery I had continued back pain and severe pain shooting down my leg. I was crippled. I could not walk. I saw two different neurosurgeons who told me they could not do anything for me. I spent 3 years in total pain and could not work or live life. My family doctor sent me to Dr. Teng and he saw what could be causing my problems, gave no promises but was willing to try to help me get my pain down. I told him even if I could get my pain down 50% I would be happy. After surgery my leg pain was gone and my back pain was better,. I am so thankful. Dr. Teng gave me my life back! I am so thankful!
2nd Back Surgery
Self-verified patient of Dr. Andelle L Teng - Posted on September 29th, 2013
In 2006 I had my spine L5 & S1 fused by another orthopedic surgeon. After only 4 years I was dealing with severe back & leg pain. I was referred to a pain clinic where I underwent several epidural injections and medial lumbar branch blocks. During one of these procedures the DR at the pain clinic ended up doing a cordizone injection where he hit my nerve and caused extreme pain to my left leg. I went to another pain clinic and ended up being put on strong pain medication as well as a high dose of Lyrica. I suffered for over 2 years, taking pain medication everyday just to go to work. After 2 years on pain medication, I begged my pain clinic to help me get off pain medication and persue another form of treatment. That is when I chose to undergo the spinal cord stimulator trial. After 8 days with the trial, I chose to proceed with the surgical implantation of the stimulator, it was my only hope. I was referred to Dr Teng by my pain clinic for the implantation. So I proceeded to get everything in order that I would need for the surgery. I was being extremely proactive with all of the requirements in order to speed up the process before my appt with Dr Teng. So I went to my appt with Dr Teng, I even had a representative from the spinal cord stimulator company there. Dr Teng comes into the room, looks at my extensive history and says "You are not a candidate for the stimulator" he said I had severe spinal stenosis and needed surgery to fix it. I was so upset and mad at Dr Teng. I was so upset that I had gone through all of the pre-surgical requirements and now he was refusing to do the surgery. Little did I know, that 1 year later after doing the surgery, my life has completely changed for the better. Dr Teng is so amazing at what he does. He knew exactly what needed to be done. His incision was extremely small compared to my first surgery. Not to mention that Dr Teng was by my side through the entire process. He did a remarkable job cleaning up the mess of scar tissue from my first surgery and fixed the problem of spinal stenosis. I am so grateful that Dr Teng fell into my path of treatment. I can not even imagine where I would be if I had not been referred to him. I am so thankful to Dr Teng and can't thank him enough for the treatment he provided me. So now 1 year and 1 month later, I feel amazing and I owe it all to Dr Teng and his extensive knowledge. I tell everyone about him and if anyone tells me they are suffering from back issues, I refer them to Dr Teng because I know he can help them just as he helped me. I thank Dr Teng and his staff. I owe him everything for changing my life and can't say enough about how much he saved my life from a history of pain medication and failed injections. Also I was completely off pain medication 3 months after surgery. Thank you so much Dr Teng & Connie!!! Bless you for your service to patients

Dr. Teng performed neck and back surgery on me in 2011 and 2012. Before the surgery, I could barely get around and was in quite a bit of pain. Dr. Teng explained the MRI, procedures, prognosis, and recuperation in detail and in a way that I could easily understand. Now, I am able to completely take care of myself, and I enjoy life again. I highly recommend Dr. Teng and his staff.
so happy to have been referred to dr teng!

I had a spine doctor that passed away and i have avoided going to a doctor for 3 years. I was referred to dr teng by my joint surgeon and i am so happy to have found someone that is like my prior doctor. Dr teng spent so much time explaining things to me and used this plastic spine model to show me what was going on. He said he would watch me and take care of my spine for me and only suggest surgery only if it was really needed. He was so honest and sincere. I'm so happy I found someone like him!
Very educational, caring, honest

I fell and hurt my back and one doctor I saw said I needed surgery. I saw Dr. Teng and he went over my x rays and spent almost 1 hour with me listening to me and telling me about my x rays and explained a lot about back pain. He told me that I would probably get better without surgery and could watch me with a conservative approach with medication and therapy. He was right. I'm glad I waited and didn't rush into risky surgery like the other doctor wanted. It's refreshing to find a surgeon that listened to me and took his time evaluating me and explaining things to me instead of wanting to operate right away.
