He seen my son while in St.Louis. His spine was a S. He can now touch his toes, turn his head and stand up straight. We are so grateful. The surgery went perfectly. There are not enough words for how much I recommend him.

The Best Orthopedic

After many doctors and a surgery that left me bent at my waist and twisted to the left my body. I had had surgery on my lower spine L-1to L-5 by an excellent surgeon in Chapel Hill, NC by Dr. Grubb .Then I slipped and fell . Dr. Grubb had semi-retired and moved to Virginia. When he saw me he was astonished. He told me the best doctor for Spine Surgery was in St. Louis and if I could get there Dr.Lenke was the best. I immediately made and appointment .Everything seem to move wonderfully fast. After Xrays I asked what was he going to do.He said I am going to fix you. fix me he did. I was there for 12 days, but it didn't seem like it. When he got me out of bed to walk, I was ready to go home. I got a walker and walked laps around the nurses station and floor for about and hour.I was never in pain. Dr. Lenke gave me my life back. I will always be thankful to both doctors - Dr Grubb for telling me about it and saying he would come out of retirement and put his team back together to sending me to what I believe to be the best at what he does.He is now in NY and I have seen him yearly for 3 years and now once in NY.It is worth the trip for the peace of mind and I would follow him anywhere money and time permitting. Please if you have a spine deformity, try your best to get a referral to him and go.I hope he will share my X-rays on his site. I am now straight and weigh 116, and I am sixty years old and people can't believe the change. People think I am in my forties. Before I was so deformed everything about me was affected-my weight the way my self-image affected my self-esteem He is a gifted surgeon who cares for his patients. I actually feel like I am taking vacation when I got to see him. Prayers for all that need him and can travel if possible now see him in two years and I almost regret seeing his team.Oh and a shout out to Angie. She is the best!!! Since my operation he has healed another young lady that attends my church,. Thank you Dr. Lenke and staff. God Bless You

Best in his Field

My husband had been turned down for surgery by more spine surgeons than I care to mention because of the severity of his scoliosis. But Dr. Lenke is the first surgeon who has the skills to do the surgery. We were referred to him by another surgeon because he was the BEST in his field. If you do not have severe scoliosis, His practice is not for you. A standard doctor can do the surgery in a month or so, but with Dr Lenke you will have to wait 6 months to a year depending on how badly you need the surgery. My husband wanted the best of care and was willing to wait for it. Impatient people who are willing to skimp on quality to get it done ASAP would not like Dr. Lenke. Dr Lenke was very attentive and kind. He and his office staff have always been attentive to us. He has not had surgery yet but is scheduled soon so we are counting the days. We were surprised to find that you could not make an appointment until you were pre-screended as being truly" severe" scoliosis.

excellent surgeon

Dr. Lenke is very knowledgeable and skilled. I travel out of state to see him. I had a very successful surgery with him. I am fused from t4- sacrum and I am virtually pain free now. It is not an easy surgery but I wouldn't have had any other surgeon touch me. I have seen him on several occasions and he was very personable and kind even when he is 2 or three hours behind. When he enters my room his attention is on me and any concerns I have. It is helpful to have your questions written down beforehand and if you expect to wait the waiting isn't too bad. I used the time in the waiting room to meet other patients and to talk to them about their experiences.
