Five Stars

I just had a spinal fusion--my second one after 31 years. Dr. Wood knows his stuff, is caring, and honest. I was a bit leary since my first surgeon did an excellent job and I was 15 when I had my first surgery. However, Dr. Wood is a great surgeon and that's the important piece. He took time out of a busy schedule to call me while I was recovering at MGH and I appreciated that since I know how busy he is. I would definitely recommend him.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

after 20 years of being told my back was inoperable Dr. Wood said he could do it. He did. The whole process went as smooth as possible. I got my life back. Dr.wood and his staff were great. I'm eternally grateful. Mass General is the best.

Very impressed. Lives up to my expectations so far!

Spent time enough to answer all my questions and explain various procedures, length of surgery, recuperation, etc. The length of time was taken up with xrays, meeting with his assistant for a thorough preliminary discussion, and waiting for the CD I had brought with me to be ready for Dr Wood to review. None of this his fault - A good experience.

Awesome Doctor!

i had my spinal fusion 15 years ago when Dr. Wood was in MN i was only 13 and very scared, Dr. Wood talked to ME in words that i understood instead of just talking to my parents like the Doctors here in Michigan did, he made me feel very comfortable with what was going on and even joked around with me the morning of surgey so i would 'lighten up' my surgery was on halloween and he even dressed up and gave me a bag of candy since i couldnt go trick-or-treating! my entire family and i feel he is an amazing Doctor!!! and i havent has ANY issues with my back (fusion with two rods) since! i wear at least 5inch stilettos everyday and im a hairstylist so i am on my feet all day constantly moving around!
