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.
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.
