Dr Leipzig operated on my lumbar spine today. My pain is completely gone. Prior to the procedure, he spent nearly an hour carefully explaining the MRI and demonstrating what he was going to do on a spine model. This is my third experience with him over four years and he has fixed each problem perfectly. Finest physician in any specialty that I have ever dealt with. He's the "Gold Standard"

Dr. Leipzig is kind, approachable, and a master of his craft. I have been dealing with lower back pain and leg pain for years from a herniated disc and am finally getting the surgery I need. Would highly recommend Dr. Leipzig’s office to anyone dealing with back issues.

I saw him approximately 15 YEARS AGO. I don't think he had a website that had testimonials then but I gotta tell you, he saved my life with this surgery. My herniated disc was causing me so much pain from the sciatica nerve, I'll never forget that once he saw my MRI, he did not hesitate to say it has to be taken out. It was that bad and the surgery only took a couple of hours (it meant to be a hour but it took longer since the size of it was larger than anticipated). They were very good to me from the beginning to the end even though it was brief. I still haven't forgotten all these years later and my back recovered after the appropriate time and measures after 6 weeks. It literally felt like I never had all that awful pain ever again afterwards. It was incredible and I still recommend to anyone who is in an awful amount of pain to look into getting back surgery done because the amount of drugs and possible drug addiction is NOT worth prolonging the inevitable. Sometimes its just worth that getting that MRI done and to discover it is worth the surgery. Once again, thank you so much, you've saved my life.

After two years of pain Dr Leipzig performed a discectomy. I am now pain free two weeks after surgery.
