The surgery I had with Dr. Rose on my back two years ago and my neck this past October has made a big difference in my life. The best thing about going to the hospital and staff asking me who my doctor was and I told them, Dr. Rose, they always said the same thing, "Oh he’s the best"! I would recommend Dr. Rose to anyone who has issues with their neck or their back.

D. Todd Rose Review


To make a painfully long story short... Dr. Todd Rose & his team are truly awesome. He operated on me due to a pinched nerve in my back which affected my right leg, I couldn't stand, sit or barely walk due to the pain. (never have I experienced pain like that in my entire life) He told me prior to the operation that I'd be pain free after the operation & he was absolutely correct. The healing process takes time but I did exactly what they told me to do after the operation & couldn't be happier. I'm truly blessed & thankful that he was my doctor.
