I was referred to Dr. White by my orthopedic doctor after experiencing severe sciatica. He reviewed my MRI and CT scan and recommended a spinal fusion. He explained the whole procedure very clearly. His office did all the scheduling promptly and accurately. I had my surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston. The surgical team were wonderful. I would highly recommend Dr. Andrew White. I have fully recovered with no pain.
I can’t recommend Dr. White highly enough. I had a lumbar spine riddled with degenerative changes and damaged disks, complicated by the presence of a large sacral cyst no one wanted to go near. I had two previous surgical consults and neither doctor wanted to risk puncturing the cyst in an attempt to relieve the constant pain down my legs and in my lower back. Pain had become debilitating. I was using a rollator and cane, and trying to reconcile myself to a future in a wheelchair. Dr. White was willing to think creatively about how to perform surgery that avoided the big risks and would relieve my pain. My surgery was 10 months ago. I am 95% pain free. I can and do walk for miles. I do yoga. I can lift my own groceries, do my own chores, put on my own clothes – all things I couldn’t do before without help. Dr. White treated me with respect and compassion all the way down the line, and I am deeply grateful to him.
I put myself in Dr. White’s hands for a minimally invasive PLIF surgery @L5-S1. The recovery lasted weeks rather than months and the only complications post-op were due to me feeling so great I resumed intense exercise too early. When I compare my experience with others who had the same fusion at the same location, I think I was in the hands of the best surgeon I could have hoped for. I resumed swimming and biking within 3 wks and biked 133 miles of B2VT 3 months later. Fingers crossed!
Dr. White, has gone above and beyond, fixing my back after I was hurt at my job. I was able to move and walk around pain free after only one month of having my spinal fusion. There are no words to express how grateful I am to Dr. White and his team. His assistant Mrs. Valerie Martinez is the nicest person I've ever met. If you are experiencing sciatica back pain, or if the pain is going down your leg, you should contact Dr. White's office in Boston ASAP. There is no need to be miserable while you could be walking around pain free.
I started seeing Dr. White a little over a year ago when I had some back pain. Dr. White did my surgery a little less than a year ago and I am happy to say that I am pain free! It was the best decision that I made. Dr. White is professional and courteous as is his assistant Valerie. I am so thankful to him every day because he changed my life. I had back pain all the time and now it is completely gone!!!
