IT TAKES TIME

Dr. Elders performed my spinal surgery on April 4 of this year, 2017. His advice after 6 weeks was "do what you feel like doing". I'm here to tell you to wait on that part. Take care of yourself, don't rush anything, pamper yourself, and be patient, then do what you want to do after about 3 months. You are less likely to pay for any activity if you just Wait. I just had my first full 30 days without any pain and that was 6 months after the surgery.. I'd recommend Dr. Elders to anyone. I liked him and I think he has magic hands...

a very good orthopedic surgeon

I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis, I visited Dr. Elders on the recommendation of my family doctor, I am truly glad he did. Dr. Elders was great, the surgery instead of 3 hours turned out to be 6 hours due to the actual situation of my lumbar area spine, he worked at it and after such a long surgery, he explained the situation to my wife and daughter in great detail, later he ran into them at the cafeteria while I was in recovery and he brought them up to date on my situation in the recovery room. On two later post operation followup visits he has been very courteous and very easy to talk to and discuss the recovery procedure, he is caring, and friendly. I cannot say enough about Dr. Elders. I have had no pain or discomfort after my surgery. I do not hesitate for one moment to recommend him to anyone looking for a good caring orthopedic surgeon, he is excellent and I feel very confident in him and his capabilities. His staff is very good and very caring as well.

sharp and knowledgeable

I was referred to him by my family doctor, he seems to be knowledgeable and confident. He made a good first impression on me. He diagnosed by lower back Spinal Stenosis and described the procedure. He spent as much time as he needed with me, he did not dilly dally went right to the point. I am currently waiting to have surgery by him in a week. His office in Conroe is very simple and sparse but he is just starting here trying to establish himself in this Area.

One Star

Dr Elders, is a surgeon and loves to operate. I feel he doesn't really care about fixing you he just want to operate. If you see him do yourself a favor and please get another option from another doctor. Dr Elders made me 10 times worse than before I he operated on me.
