Caring and very capable

He explained by neck issue in very thorough and clear terms I could understand. He referred me for non-operative treatment, and when I did not respond he offered a minimally invasive outpatient solution. I was back to work in 5 days, and I am now over a year from surgery and doing amazingly well. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Westerlund to family and freinds.

Excellent surgeon. Dr Westerlund is patient, thorough, and he explained my options in terms I could clearly understand so I could make a best choice for me. I had a minimally invasive neck surgery, and I am back to full duty without restrictions. Best decision I have ever made.

Thoughtful, caring, knowledgeable, and very thorough

Dr. Westerlund and his staff are excellent. He explained things in clear terms that helped me to very clearly understand my neck issue and my treatment options. I ended up having minimally invasive surgery, went home an hour after surgery, and am doing amazingly well. Highly recommended.

Excellent minimally invasive spine surgeon

Dr. Westerlund is thoughtful and caring. He is easy to talk to, and was able to explain a difficult surgical spine problem in clear terms that made sense to me. Two other surgeons only left me more confused! I would trust Dr. Westerlund with anyone in my family.

Trustworthy and very capable, great staff

Expect a great experience if you have a neck or back problem that needs or may need surgery! Dr. Westerlund and his staff are excellent. The doctor is approachable and very knowledgeable and explains everything patiently and clearly. I am healing amazing well from my minimally invasive low back surgery, and I went home within an hour or two after the procedure.
