Life saver!

Amazing! I started experiencing SEVERE, debilitating neck and arm pain 6 months ago. Consistent PT and epidurals failed to provide any relief. Dr. Anderer diagnosed me with cervical disc disease with myelopathy, and advised me that surgery would be the best option. He was informative, patient and answered every question I had. I am now two weeks post-op and can honestly say he’s a miracle worker. I’m still healing, but i have no arm pain and am overall feeling better each day. Highly recommend!

Amazing Dr.

Amazing DR, saved my life. I suffered for 5 years with a bad neck injury , saw 2 other surgeons, both said they weren't sure they can help me. Dr. Anderer squeezed me into his schedule, had the operation the next week. I was walking 2 hours after the procedure and went home the next day. He removed three disks and fused four vertebrae together, now it has been six months since surgery and I feel like a different person. Amazing Dr, I'm only in my early thirties and suffered for years, now able to return to normal activities with minimal discomfort. Thanks Doc five star, top of his field.

I had to have a aneurysm clipped. My biggest worry was scarring. Dr. Anderer was amazing. I have no scar and my hair grew back in that area
