    Hello! My husband has suffered froma herniated disc in his C6 and C7 are of his neck since 1995. Causes nerve pain down his arm and up into his head, difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position, etc. He can no longer ride a bike, etc due to the positoning of his neck…. it’s beyond time for him to look at possible surgery.

    We were going to try to see you at the Steadman Clinic as you did the surgery for our good friend. But alas you’ve retired… good for you!! Anyways, is there someone you like in particular at the clinic for this type of issue? We live in Littleton, CO area but will travel up there.

    Hope you are loving Hawaii!

    There is a new spine surgeon at the clinic whom I do not know so I would not know of his abilities. I split my time between Colorado and Hawaii so I have the best of both worlds!

    Nice! You indeed have the best of both worlds….

    just clairifying, you are indeed retired and no longer doing surgeries correct? Just wanted to make sure I didn’t misunderstand and maybe retired from that clinic only and but doing surgeries elsewhere. I’m just trying to find him the best surgeon:) If not, and you have a colleague you’d reccomend let me know.

    If you are retired… enjoy! You have obviously earned it.

    I am currently performing consultations, writing and seeing patients on an intermittent basis. I will assist with surgeries but will no longer be the lead surgeon. If you want to call the 888 number, maybe I can guide you.
