My son suffered horrible spinal injuries with multiple crushed vertebrae and it was not clear he would ever be able to walk again. I'm happy to say you would never know he suffered any injuries unless you see the scar on his back. Dr. Altanaue is superb not only in surgery but also in his interactions with both patients and family. I reccomend him most highly!
In 1991 my 3 month old son was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, Dr. Altenau was caring an confident. He performed corrective surgery and immediately after the surgery came out pumped up and excited, he told us how strong a fighter our son was even to the point of fighting the anesthesia. I am proud to say my son has had 24 years of a good life. He is a student attending SDSU and has a bright mind and great personality.... Thank you so much
