"I first experienced pretty severe back pain several years ago. My pain became so bad that I could barely walk even a half of a block.
I was referred to Dr. Carlson at Orthopedic Institute and he suggested that I consider undergoing an operation called the X-Stop procedure. I trusted Dr. Carlson, so we scheduled my surgery. I checked in at 6:00 a.m. and was back home in the afternoon of the same day! I have had no leg or back pain since then, and I’m back to walking and playing golf just like I used to.
Dr. Carlson and the entire staff at Orthopedic Institute were just wonderful! I can’t thank them enough!"

"I just want to thank everybody at Orthopedic Institute for giving me such excellent care for my back problem. I was really suffering from pain and numbness in my leg which made walking difficult for me.
Dr. McKenzie explained all the different treatments that were available for my back and we decided that surgery was the best option for me.
About two weeks after my surgery I was already back to a full day’s work with absolutely no pain or numbness. In fact, I felt almost as good as new."

“There was no other place
I would have considered
going for treatment other
than Orthopedic Institute.”
"I would like to tell you what a miracle worker Dr. Chang has been for me. When my orthopedic physician sent me to Dr. Chang for acupuncture, this was the last resort because we had tried everything except surgery.
After the very first treatment, I was able to walk without all the pain. Since, we’ve also worked on the pain I’ve had for many years from two back surgeries. My family and friends all say I just look better and you do look better when you’re not in constant pain.
Dr. Chang has been the answer to my prayers, that is why I call him a miracle worker!"

“They know what to do,
and they did everything
possible to get me back
"I suffered from back and leg pain for years because I was afraid to have an operation. The pain increased until I couldn't sit, sleep or walk without it. I had to give up the things I like to do such as walking the dogs, playing golf and bowling. I had to seek medical help and was referred to Dr. Johnson. He assured me he could operate and restore my back. The operation was a success and my back is fine. I can do all the things I like to do. I work at a job every day and have no back problems. I am 77 years old. Thanks doc."

“They care about
They want you to get
back in the game.”
"I had arthritis in my lower back for a long time. On August 21st, Dr. Suga did my back surgery. He gets my highest praise and I have great faith in his ability as a surgeon. He told me he thought he could help me -- He did. Five weeks later my recuperation is going well and I am pain free. I thank him every day.

I always came back
to OI to get their
treatment and care.”
“I want to live again and the pain was so bad and had gone on for so many years. I tried many different things, including too many narcotics…acupuncture was the last resort. I didn’t notice anything right away, but after the third or fourth visit, I felt a slight change and then it got better every week after acupuncture with Dr. Chang. He has given me my life back. I can do things now that I couldn’t do before that I enjoy like quilting and baking. I have cut down on my pain meds significantly. Thank God for Dr. Chang and his staff. They are so kind and were so good to me. I can’t thank them enough!”

takes really good care of
people. They did a great
job getting me back to
where I needed to be.”
“I feel without Dr. Chang’s care, I would not be walking. I had a failed back surgery and had a curved spine and could not walk. My back and left leg hurt so bad and nothing helped, not even medication. I had gone to a spine and pain clinic in Alexandria, VA and got no relief. My physical therapist is the one who told me about Dr. Chang and acupuncture, so I gave it a try. I’m really, really happy with Dr. Chang. He is so gentle, yet his hands have this communication with your body.”
