Dr. Riew only does cervical surgeries. If you were told you might need a cervical spine surgery please see Dr. Riew. He is the only doctor you will need to see. I found out about Dr. Riew when it was too late for me. The remedy now required for me will be quite, quite extensive. He is a doctor you can trust. This is coming from a person who lost complete trust in doctors until I met Dr. Riew. I only wish I knew of him sooner for me.

I have had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis for 43 of my 45 years of life, and when I was diagnosed with cervical stenosis it was a BIG problem. It was going to be an extremely delicate and risky surgery; so much so, that no surgeon I went to in my home state would touch me! Finally, one of them thankfully knew about Dr. Riew and said I should look him up. Dr. Riew saved my life; he gave me back my walking and doing what I love! He is my miracle worker!! Thank goodness we have Dr. Riew!!

Daniel Riew, MD, represents for me the model cervical spine surgeon. I’ve known him for a long time and spent time with him in the USA and all over the world when he was President of the CSRS (Cervical Spine Research Society) and I was President of CSRS-ES (Cervical Spine Research Society — European Section). As a speaker, he is clear, didactic and brings huge personal experience with spinal surgery. But most of all, I appreciate his honesty, ability to share personal experience, different from what can be acquired from publications, and free of any conflicts of interest. As a surgeon, through publications on techniques and surgical courses that are internationally well-known, he proves his brightness, his skill and his intelligence in decision-making and appropriate indications. And to conclude, he is a charming person, very warm and very close to his patients.
