Dr Theodore preformed a thoracic fusion on me in 2011. It began to fail almost immediately, I never obtained a day of normalcy. I'm now facing a complete spinal revision surgery, to clean up the mess he made on my back. He has a complete narcissistic personality, arrogant and condensensing. Avoid this surgeon at all costs.

Excellent surgeon

I can not say enough good things about Dr Nicholas Theodore. He gave me a second chance to walk again and enjoy my life. Around June of 2016, I found out that I had an atypical hemangioma tumor on my T4 and very close to spinal cord. I live in Los Angeles and I went to all the top hospitals and neurosurgeons around me. Neurosurgeons either did not want to operate on me or they did not have the expertise since the operation was extremely life threatening , rare, and complicated. Therefore, I started to contact all the major hospitals in the nation. Dr Theodore was the only doctor who responded to my email in less than 12 hours. After submitting all my records to him, he contacted me personally and answered all my questions in detail over the phone. Dr Theodore is a nationally renowned neurosurgeon. He delivered whatever he promised to me before the surgery and I am extremely satisfied and grateful with his operation. After operation was done, on the third day I started walking. I find Dr Theodore to be an exceptional surgeon and outstanding individual. The compassion and kindness he offered me makes him truly a " real human being" in every sense of the word. After the operation he visited me several times both in hospital and while I was going through rehab. I also have a debt of gratitude to Johns Hopkins hospital and its worldly renowned staff for superb care I received after my operation. Also I like to extend my gratitude to Dr Theodore's assistant Julie Zeuch who facilitated my trip to Baltimore.
