I will make this simple, after seeing other physicians I can state emphatically if you have a neck you seriously think needs surgical correction do NOT see anyone else BUT Dr. Riew! Get the best: he understands the neck better than anyone else and is a skilled surgeon. I have been all over the country seeking answers and he had them when others didn’t and now after a decade I am pain free and recovering spectacularly from a recent major surgery.

In early 2017, I faced a dilemma. My daughter, who sustained a neck injury as a teen, needed help again with her spine. I knew she already had two surgeries in Hawaii. I fretted about how to best help her. In a leap of faith, I checked a couple BEST SURGEONS IN THE US lists and found 3 cervical surgeons who were on BOTH lists. Dan Riew was one of them. Dr. Riew is absolutely an expert surgeon and his team is superb as well. My daughter had the best help possible on the planet. Thanks!
