Professor Riew is by far the best cervical spine surgeon in the world and defies all comparison in the surgical management of cervical spine disorders. He has an extremely high reputation even in European and Asian countries and has been invited to educate cervical spine surgeons in these areas several hundred times. He does not have only unbelievable surgical skills like “God’s hands” and admirably innovative academic ideas, but also a wonderful personality. He is the one and only surgeon who I would let operate on my neck, should I need cervical spine surgery.
