I had spinal surgery and I'm so thankful I went to Dr. Cunningham and Hospital for Special Surgery. They took such good care of me and my back is great. I have no pain!

Five Stars

Dr. Cunningham is extremely impressive. He has a warm, open manner. He takes the needed time with a patient and answers questions thoroughly, thoughtfully, and clearly using lay terms and minimizing or explaining "medicalese." The office staff – Physician's Assistant, Office Manager, and Scheduler – are also extremely helpful and supportive. Dr. Cunningham takes a minimalist approach – do what is really needed yet not more. We quickly found that we trusted his judgment and insight. The surgery went very well and the after-care is top notch. He is supported by the Hospital for Special Surgery which along with Dr Cunningham focuses on patient-centric care. I recommend Dr. Cunningham with complete confidence.

Best doctor ever!

Dr Cunningham is the best doctor ever I have met. He is really professional and with great manner and sense of humor. English is not my fist language and there are a lot of medical terms that I can not understand and he explained them to me very clearly. I had very severe pain on my leg before and barely can walk. I did try various treatments and spent much money on it, but it became more and more painful. Right now after microdiscectomy from him,I am very satisfy with the result. Strongly recommend him for people who have lumber spine herniated disc.

Remarkable!

My experience with Dr. Cunningham was remarkable. He was my surgeon for 2 microdiscectomys. I have never had a doctor who spent so much time with me to fully discuss all of the options and the implications of any decisions we made. His bedside manner is warm and personable. His office manager, Tina, is incredible and was on top of any scheduling and insurance issues. It is now 3 months after my second surgery. Three months ago I was in constant, excruciating pain and could barely walk 10 feet with the assistance of a cane. I am now back to all of my regular physical activities. I am swimming, canoeing, and playing frisbee with my kids! Thank you Dr. Cunningham!
