Dr. Hartleben was truly a life saver for me . When I first seen him I was basically wheel chair bound with intense back pain , he explained what he could do for me and within 1 week performed the surgery . Within 1 week after surgery I was up and moving fairly comfortably and now it has been 2 months and I have no back pain and can live my life as I did . He truly is a talented man and I thank god for finding him when I did.

Dr. Hartleben performed major spinal surgery in both the Thoracic and Lumbar areas of my back. The surgery was extremely successful. He is both professional and friendly. On the edge of a film, he spotted what he thought could be a larger problem than the one for which I was referred, ordered an additional MRI and saved me a lot of anguish. He is extremely knowledgeable, very approachable, understandable in his explanations prior to and after surgery. My experience with him was extremely successful and I am ever appreciative for what he did for my as a surgeon.
