Patient Reviews

  • I am now 1 year post cervical disc replacement surgery. The pain and numbness is still completely gone! I can't thank Dr. Tjarksen and the OAW staff enough.

    From my first consultation to my final post op, the experience was great. Dr. Tjarksen discussed all non-surgical and surgical options. He actually performed my surgery using newer technology and techniques than what the "academic centers" offer.

    Many of the patients going to OAW are experiencing some type of pain. Pain is a very lonely place. Dr. Tjarksen and OAW made it all go away.
