I would have written this review earlier, but I have been enjoying my new back. (Okay, I've been taking it easy as advised…..) Last summer, as I was once again 70 going on 30, my back experienced its final straw while I was working on a Kenai recreation site. After months of chiropractic and physical therapy, I was still experiencing pain and the inability to pull off many daily tasks. The first person I want to thank is my wife who did the research and found Dr. Maxwell and Arctic Spine Institute. I commented that Dr. Maxwell sounded too good to be true…..you know what is said about something that is too good to be true. I already had an MRI which Dr. Maxwell reviewed free of charge and gave me a call. At an appt later that week, Dr. Maxwell went over the MRI and xrays with us and diagnosed my situation. He stated that the procedure would be fairly routine (easy for him to say) to fix the 2 gnarly discs and free up the nerve that was causing me pain. When I told him my brother had back surgery in Florida 5 years ago at age 70 and now has train tracks running up his back, Dr. Maxwell responded that there are doctors out there that would give me a train track, too. He vowed he would do the least invasive procedure to correct the damaged discs and compressed nerve and that, in fact, is exactly what he did. Dr. Maxwell is straight forward, professional, and committed to giving patients the least amount of surgery that brings back quality of life. His entire staff is skilled, thorough, and highly personable. Lucy went above and beyond in handling all the paperwork and insurance details. Dr. Price spent more time with us than any anesthesiologist we’ve encountered. Our main nurse, Jessica, was no less than fabulous, and we can say there were no Nurse Ratcheds at Arctic Spine. The facility is first class, spotless, and the atmosphere is far superior to any other place of surgery we’ve experienced…..& at our ages, we’ve seen more than a few. After our first post-op visit, we sat in the large reception area and listened to Betsy play great music on a Steinway Grand. We would send all the people we love there should they need an outstanding neurosurgeon and medical practice. Bruce Holdsworth
Over the years for lower back pain I had been prescribed various medications, chiropracty, MRI and referred to an orthopedic surgeon for review, and in turn referred to physical therapy. Nothing worked. Years later and after yet another debilitating episode and unable to perform my work duties I decided something had to be done. Researching options I decided on Arctic Spine. As it turned out it was the best possible decision I could have ever made. After contacting the center in short order Dr. Maxwell personally called me back, ordered a current MRI and met with me for a 1 on 1 review. Dr. Maxwell correctly diagnosed the actual cause of my pain and explained in detail the best and least invasive solution. Dr. Maxwell even took the time to perform a distal spinal block to confirm the diagnosis, something which had never even been mentioned in past evaluations. Arctic Spine's experienced staff, knowing my very limited time constraints worked with my out of network insurance provider to quickly approve all procedures. The whole process took 2 weeks, not months, and for the first time in over 20 years I'm living a normal pain free life. Arctic Spine is the only surgery center of its kind in the state of Alaska. Full service, 1 on 1 Dr. to patient care, fully outpatient. I was walking within an hour of surgery, relaxing at home that evening, and back to work within days. If I had to sum up the caliber of Dr. Maxwells professional care, his knowledgeable staff, and Arctic spine in a single word, I would have to say unparalleled.
Dr. Maxwell and team are amazing. My family physician recommended him after many x-rays and scans for cervical disk issues. I am grateful for the entire experience from initial meeting to post-surgery follow-up. Lucy worked with my insurance company to maximize coverage and minimize my out-of-pocket. I am pain-free and glad to recommend the entire Arctic Spine group!
