Best experience ever with a major surgery such as with my spine!

Our health insurance provider, Blue Cross Blue Shield, referred us to Dr. Sethuraman and we discovered he is the best in the nation regarding spine repair. And the assistant Doctor (Jules) is amazing as well. My wife needed an answer to a question and Jules called her back within 15 minutes. That's totally amazing with how busy they are. The entire office staff is so awesome! They treat you better than family!! We will most Definitely refer anyone we come across that has spine issues to the Spine Physicians Institute! THANK YOU Dr. Sethuraman, Dr. Jules and the entire Spine Physicians Institue staff!!

I owe them my life.

The staff and physicians in this office are truly saviors to me. From the love exuding from the wonderful Savannah who greets me, to the amazing and knowledgeable Dr Seth, who is the only reason I'm walking today. I had no where to turn when I came here. And, thanks to them, I can at least STAND and fight the effects of my connective tissue disorder. I'd recommend them 1000 times over.

The right solution to my problem

I had a previous surgery done a MISI and the doctor there had a one size fits all approach which did not work for me. I came to Dr Seth to see if I had to go through life in pain from the subpar repair and he said NO! He went over the procedure he could do for me and made sure I understood. We did the surgery about a month later, right away I could tell a big difference between the surgeries I had. I no longer feel fragile like I did after the previous surgery. The hardware put in place in the Dr. Seth surgery is far superior to the “hardware” that MISI had used. I was in far less pain when I woke up from Dr Seth’s surgery than I was with the previous surgery. After both surgeries I was able to walk several hours after the procedure but with Dr Seth’s I was in so much less pain and getting out of bed was so much easier. I really think Dr. Seth cares about his patients’ well being and recovery. You are not just a assembly line procedure like at MISI. The staff is great too!!

Professional Physician

My operation was a great success. It was virtually a painless experience. I was up and capable of walking around 2 days after the surgery. I felt such vigor and energy in my body that I had not felt for 6 years.

Excellent Doctor

There was a time when I had given up all hope of having a good life. I had been in a car accident and received grievous injuries. Almost every institution had given up hope on me being able to walk again, without help. But, my prayers were answered when I went to Dr. Seth.

I really feel comfortable here

From the receptionist all the way up to Dr. Seth, the entire team has done a great job of making me feel at home and comfortable. I’ve battled back issues for over 13 years and been to many places for help. I feel I am finally on the right track now.
