Five Stars

Dr. Dryer's bedside manner and confidence made me feel relaxed and confident about the surgery which turned out better than I could have hoped for. Every other surgeon I had seen about the back pain had recommended either fusion or laminectomy. He said he might have done the laminectomy 10 years ago but he utilized a new method to remove the calcification around the spinal column. No pain and playing in an over 60 softball league.

A Wonderful Surgeon

I could not walk for 2 months, due to an L5-S1 disc herniation that compressed my S1 nerve. The pain was excruciating. The day after the macro diskectomy, I was able to walk with out the horrific sciatic pain in my entire leg that I experience for the two months! My recovery mostly involved allowing the sutured area in my lower back to heal. I am so grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Dryer. If you need this surgery, let him do it.

mrs.

i was naturally frightened of potential surgery involving my neck. after spending time explaining the problem adequately, what to expect when the repair was complete, Dr. Dryer said, "piece of cake." my confidence level in him zoomed and we arranged a surgery date. it was the success he predicted and i have no regrets. years later after hearing of similar surgeries and the unfortunate complications that patients experienced with other surgeons, I am forever grateful to Dr. Dryer and all his personal and technical skills.
