    I just wanted to tell you congratulations on being named as one of 50 of the best spine specialists in the country. I tell everyone I had the very best doctor to do my surgery. Every day after my surgery I could tell a big difference with my back and such improvement. I feel my back is so much better and my stamina is so much better also... I am so thankful for the improvement you have given me - Thank you. My life is better because of you.

    I have nothing but high praise for everyone I've dealt with at The Spine Center. I was able to get my appointment very quickly. I'm just sorry I didn't find Dr. Moelleken sooner and wasted a month with a different provider.

    I must say a 5 star rating

    I must say a 5 star rating is still not enough, this Surgeon and his entire are without question one of the finest professional medical teams and establishments you could ever ask for. I have been seeing Dr. Moelleken, for my back, As for tests and office visits I find this to be a real plus, if you diagnose the problem and try non invasive ways to correct the issue before going right to surgery I feel this is the proper way to practice medicine. Everyone hears the horror stories about back surgery I did as well from one of my closest friends who has had 3 back surgeries and continued to experience debilitating pain. I recommended he see Dr. Moelleken who reviewed his case examined him looked at his MRI and X-rays and got him on a regiment of physical therapy which now has him playing golf again without pain. Now for my story, after trying several treatments including injections I realized that in order to fix my back problem I would have to have surgery. I travel extensively overseas and lugging a suitcase on and off airplanes and long flights are all really bad for the back. At the end of last year I really hurt my back lifting a suitcase overhead on a crowded train. When I returned Dr. Molleken ordered an MRI and told me that my only option now was to have the surgery. (2 herniated discs and spinal stanosis) I had the surgery at the Surgery Center in the Spine and Ortho Center on December 6th and today I feel like I am 20 years old again, all the pain is gone I feel 100%
