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!!

Dr. Sethuraman is a caring, meticulous and brilliant doctor.!

Dr. Sethuraman takes time to talk to you, explain the procedure and process in clear understandable terms. His staff is efficient and caring. I had a 360 lumber fusion and called the office every week after the surgery asking questions. The staff was kind, understanding and patient with me. I always felt better just hearing their answers and words of encouragement. I had neck fusion surgery with another doctor and now wish Dr. Sethuraman could have done it. The 360 back fusion surgery is not easy, but having it done by Dr. Sethuraman and his staff made it much easier!

Excellent Doctor

A few months back, I was experiencing severe back pain. Even getting up from bed was a real task for me. But then a friend recommended to me the Spine Physicians Institute located in Dallas. I decided to see what the fuss was all about. I can definitely say it was the best decision I ever made. The service was awesome, the surgery was painless and the fees were very reasonable. I cannot thank you enough.

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.

First class care and results

After nearly fifty years of playing the violin professionally in symphony orchestras I was left with a badly damaged cervical spine that caused debilitating chronic daily headaches for decades as well as many other troubling symptoms. Dr. Seth recommended anterior cervical discectomy with fusion and ultimately performed this procedure on discs C2 through C7. Following surgery my chronic headaches and other symptoms are gone, an outcome that borders on the miraculous. I could not be happier. A hearty thank you to Dr. Seth and the staff at SPI.

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!!
