"He is very knowledgeable. He tells you whether or not he can do the work. He is not guessing. He was my 5th doctor I had seen for that and he was able to get me back 100% and he did not propose surgery right away. He was really confident."

The surgery performed by Dr S was life-changing. After four years of lower back pain caused by a degenerative disc I was still leery about surgery. However, the minimally invasive approach was not frightening and Dr S came highly recommended. I was astonished to find almost immediate relief post surgery. Within three weeks I... Read More

There are, in my opinion, very few doctors who can compare with Dr. Subramanian who is so honest and caring with his patients. He always tries to find the best solutions to your problem before jumping into surgery if there are other paths to try. When he finally agrees with the patient that an operation is the best course to take... Read More

I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease in 2008. At first the pain was manageable but gradually worsened. At one point I was even dragging my leg because it hurt so badly to walk. The only relief was taking opioids. After a few years I realized the pain was the same with or without the drugs so I stopped taking them. I had spoken with so many people... Read More
