Incredible Surgeon

Eight years ago, Dr. Ritland did surgery on my lower back. I had had all the Pt, Injections, etc available. One Neurosurgeon in San Diego said there was nothing he could do for me. After my surgery, I had the back of a 25 year old. At that time I was 65. I need surgery again and I going back to Dr. Ritland. He does not take new patients at this points.

After many years, a physician who knows his job

I had a lumbar spinal fusion and my back is as good as it was when I was 35 y/o. He's wonderful.

Best surgon around

I have fusion in the lower back done by Dr. Ritland some 8 years ago. He told me at the time that the bending and other work done by that joint would be transferred to joints above and below it and we could see each other in 5 or 10 years. Recovery was good and pain gone for years. Now my age and life style require me to visit him again. I am looking forward to seeing Dr. Ritland again, if for no other reason than to say "Hi"

My experience with Dr. Ritland

There no more professional neurosurgeon the the planet than Dr. Ritland. I had a laminectomy and fusion of 5 vertebrae in my lumbar region. The surgery took 6 1/2 hours. I have a dear friend in Ohio that is a doctor and I showed him the xrays of my back. His comments were "outstanding placement of the "screws" and your surgeon was really using the latest procedures. I would recommend Dr. Ritland to anyone who needs a neurosurgeon.
