Dr. Flangas and his staff are very professional and caring. I had neck surgery one year ago 2016. After other two surgeon's opinion. I decided chose Dr. Flangas. The surgery successful and my neck healing very well. He is kind and friendly. He takes his time and listens. I highly recommended him. Thank you Dr Flangas. May God bless you and your staff.
Dr flangas is wonderful I only wish I hadn't been so stubborn and done surgery sooner. I was reading everything about what a microdiskony entailed and postponed it for almost three months. I had a severe L4 L5 S1 herniation with drop foot, after the initial "blow out" of my disk I didn't have a lot of pain just foot drop and no dorsal flex finally after losing control of my leg and foot I had surgery.OMG It went so smooth, very little pain, I am one month into rehab due to not having surgery sooner we don't know if it will solve my foot drop I am hopeful but it won't be Dr. Flangas fault I should have heeded his warning and stopped reading the internet and listening to friends warning me of the terrible consequences of back surgery.The office staff Teresa and Nicole were so helpful. Hope this blog helps anyone debating this same situation I only wish I would have done it sooner.
I was in an accident that resulted in several surgeries. When I had my neck operated, the last question I had to the surgeon was, how long would it be until the pain was gone. He answered that as soon as I woke up, it would be gone. After the surgery, while in my semi-comatose state, I didn't feel anything different and had to go back several times for different tests and MRI's, and came to the conclusion that I had to live with the pain. After a few years, I could no longer take it anymore and asked around for a different doctor. Dr. Flangas explained that he could correct the existing problem and relieve my pain. When I woke up in the hospital, after immediately stretching my fingers, toes, limbs, I realized that the pain was indeed gone. Thank You very much.
