Could not have had a better experience at a doctor's office. ( I do know, I'm a surgeon.) His coordinator, Yulia, and PA, Jordan, could not have been more friendly and helpful. The office is very efficient. Dr. Ozgur and I both felt surgery was necessary. It was carried out expeditiously, and now, nearing three months, has to considered a complete success. I could not be happier, and hopefully you will, as well.

A very caring professional terrific physician. I can’t thank him enough for the incredible surgery he performed on my spine. It is only four weeks and I feel so, so much better. He has given me back the ability to enjoy life without back pain. I am celebrating!

I had the incredibly good fortune of having Dr. Ozgur consult on my case as a third opinion at the urging of my Pain Management Specialist, Dr. Lido Chen (who is a marvel in and of herself). Having been in increasingly excruciating back and left leg pain for nearly a year, no conservative measures (massage therapy, exercises, medications, injections, epidurals, etc.) had yielded any lasting results. Both my Orthopedic Surgeon and (first) Neurosurgeon---both very good physicians---agreed that my only option was a double lumbar fusion with instrumentation which I had resigned myself to and subsequently scheduled. However, just three weeks before the scheduled surgery, Dr. Ozgur was incredibly kind to make the time to review my records and consult with me. While he agreed that my records showed considerable pathology in my back, Dr. Ozgur felt the source of my actual pain could be my left sacroiliac joint and advised postponing surgery until an EMG was done for further diagnostic evidence. Indeed, the EMG isolated the pain source to this area rather than my lumbar spine. At that point, Dr. Ozgur recommended that Dr. Chen perform a non-surgical procedure called RFA-Radio Frequency Ablation as the next step, prior to considering any type of surgery and indeed, it worked amazingly! Within two days I had a 90% reduction in my pain and that was 10 weeks ago! Without Dr. Ozgur's tremendous breath of knowledge and experience, I fear I would have undergone a major surgery which would have left me in the same progressive pain, an outcome that would have no doubt sent me spiraling into depression. However, his careful consideration of the nuances of my case, combined with his wisdom and clinical skills, became a medical "game-changer" for me. I must also tell you that in addition to Dr. Ozgur's medical skills, his interpersonal skills and those of his staff are compassionate, warm, and engaging. I am so very grateful to Dr. Ozgur and I now consider him my neurosurgeon for life! I promise you---you will be in highly skilled and trustworthy hands should you choose to consult with Dr. Ozgur.

This doctor did the minimum amount of surgery on my spine. I went to another surgeon and saw why I was still in pain. I have a Pars fracture that he ignored and unstable discs which he ignored. Now I am getting real back surgery for a serious and unstable spine.
spine /neck surgery

I had both neck and spinal stenosis which I treated for 5 years with shots and pain pills. My pain became so severe that surgery became necessary. I went to two ortho surgeons and a neuro surgeon Dr. Ozgur who is board certified in Orthpedics and Neurosurgery. Dr. Ozgur"s plan was much more complete with several subspecialitites involved in analaizingmy situation. My preparation for surgery was so professional giving me all the info needed. I had neck Surgery first then spine surgery. The results were perfect. Mobility improved immensely and pian partically gone. Dr. Ozgur has the best reputation of all neuro surgeons at Hoag hospital.

I was immediately impressed by the time Dr. Ozgur took to explain my situation and the necessary treatment as well as answering any questions I had. He was thorough before the surgery as well as at the post surgery appointment and willing to answer questions and discuss my prognosis and progress. Highly recommended
Deeply grateful for pain relief

Dr. Ozgur performed my minimally invasive surgery about four weeks ago. He, along with Erin, his PA, and his office staff are extremely competent, professional and thorough. Erin sits in on each appointment with Dr. Ozgur and takes notes. Dr. Ozgur is able to be present to listen to his patients and determine what is going on with them medically. Dr. Ozgur is kind, gentle and confident. While I was at the hospital, each nurse that I came in contact with made the comment to me, "You have the best surgeon". I agree and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs neurological medical help.
Great Surgeon & Staff

I was referred to Dr. Ozgur by my neurologist when she determined that surgery on my cervical spine was probably needed. I left my first consultation appointment with Dr. Ozgur very impressed not only with him, but his entire staff. Dr. Ozgur answered all of my questions, some even before I was able to ask them. The entire process from consultation, surgery and follow-up has been totally seamless. I appreciate the excellent care that I have received from Dr. Ozgur and his staff, and would highly recommend him as a neurosurgeon.
Thank You Dr. Ozgur

I'm not the kind of person who feels comfortable asking for help, but I always seemed to find the help I needed-at the time, during my office visits with Dr. Ozgur. At my first visit, I was terrified, because my legs weren't working correctly. After talking with him, I was relieved to know that my spine could be repaired, and knew that he would be the one to do it. Subsequently, after a few more visits, over the next several months, I came to the point where I knew something needed to be done soon, and I made the decision to have the necessary surgery. I recently had the surgery. I have a deeply felt appreciation, and a heartfelt thankfulness for everything in Dr. Ozgur's life that went in to making him both an excellent neurosurgeon, and a good person. I think what he does and how he does it to be nothing short of inspirational. Thank You, Dr. Ozgur.
