The Outpatient Experience

Deuk Spine Institute has had zero complications in seven years of laser spine surgery. Our infection rate is zero. How is that possible? At our state of the art outpatient surgery facility, patients experience unprecedented care. Every surgical patient is assigned his or her own nurse for one on one care. Our physicians control the level of care, without jumping through the hoops of hospital administration. The result is safer, more effective procedures and a focus on quality of care.

  • "I can now get up from a chair and just walk with no pain or stiffness. It is something that has changed my life. I can play golf, bowl, simply turn around, dance with my wife, pick up something off the ground, and many other things that most take for granted. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have allowed me to be able to live my life pain free again."
  • "I have always been a very active person until this horrible back pain took over my life. When I had my MRI read I was told I would never be that active person again that I once was. Then I met you and I was sure I had found the best doctor to fix my back, I was not wrong! After surgery I am feeling better than I ever have."
