PATIENT STORIES

Every year, patients from across the United States and internationally travel to Fort Lauderdale to receive state-of-the-art spinal care at Cantor Spine Center at the Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute.

Doctor Cantor gave me my life back. His team and staff are the best. My only regret is that i didn’t find him sooner. 100% recommendation for all your spine back and neck issues. Very professional and caring for your needs. Thank you again so much Dr. CANTOR and to YOUR TEAM as well. Honestly my family and I can’t thank you enough.

The whole experience has been great from start to finish. I’ve been really impressed with Dr. Cantor. I will have surgery for my cervical stenosis next month and wouldn’t want anyone other than Dr. Cantor performing it. His ability and experience are obvious but it goes beyond that. During my pre-op appointments, he was very personable, extremely thorough. and he took his time explaining things in terms that I could understand. That went a long way in helping my comfort level. My wife and I live an hour outside of Philadelphia and we will gladly travel 1000 miles to have Dr. Cantor do my procedure. I will recommend to anyone with neck and back issues that they consult Dr. Cantor and the Cantor Spine Center. His staff has been friendly, very responsive, and a real pleasure to work with!”

I consider these reviews very important when it comes to doctors like Dr. Cantor because new patients in need look at them to decide whether or not to ‘make the appointment’ and see the doctor. As a healthcare provider myself I consulted with 3 other spine surgeons before seeing Dr. Cantor. Dr. Cantor is also about 1000 miles from where I live so it was a bigger commitment to seek treatment from him.

Interestingly my mother had the same exact problem I was having so I referred her to Dr. Cantor as well and we sought treatment together. From our initial encounter I was really pleased with how friendly and competent his staff was. We had multiple interactions before the initial consultation and they were all very pleasant.

Our first consultation with Dr. Cantor was postponed a week due to an emergency. That is understandable as he is a world renowned specialist and cannot always predict where his time is needed. Dr. Cantor spent way more time with my mother and I than I expected during our initial consult which was via telemedicine. He took great care to explain what we had wrong with us and how he would approach it.

Dr. Cantor’s approach made the most sense compared to the other surgical recommendations we had received. We scheduled surgery for about a month later. Everything leading up to the surgery was very organized. Our pre surgical packet explained everything in detail all the way to nutritional recommendations so we had the best opportunity to heal.

At the time of this review, my mother and I are about 2 1/2 weeks since surgery. We are both doing well. Every interaction we have had with Dr. Cantor and his staff have been amazing. I am very pleased with how Dr. Cantor approaches his craft. The way he treats cervical stenosis is truly unique and worth the travel to be under his care.

He is also a very conservative surgeon so if a patient sees him and he does not recommend surgery, he is basically saying other treatments may be of benefit compared to surgery.

I am so happy I found Dr. Cantor while researching treatments for cervical stenosis on the internet. He is the real deal and if you are suffering from difficult to treat spinal issues, you would be well served to have a consultation with Dr. Cantor or his other associates.”

“From the moment I walked into Dr. Cantor’s office, I had a recurring thought: Why have I waited so long to fix my back? You definitely get the sense that you’re in the right place. Everyone you will encounter is top-notch. From the staff at the front desk, to the assistants and nurses, and up to Dr. Cantor himself, all deliver the expertise that you want and deserve.

I’ll be 50 this year, and I’ve been dealing with varying degrees of back pain for over 15 years. But the last 3 years have been excruciating and debilitating. It was so gradual how my mind slowly limited all of the things that I could do, until the point that I didn’t want to do anything that involved walking or standing. No cocktail parties, no outdoor activities, no cooking in my own kitchen.. all were off my list. I knew I had to do something, because the motorized carts at Publix seemed like a good idea to me. Thankfully, I realized that I’m not ready for that, so I reached out to Dr. Cantor, and I’m so glad I did.

The bottom line is this: Dr. Cantor cares about improving your life, and he has the talent to get that done. That’s what you want.

I’m 6 weeks from my surgery now. I can honestly say that it went better than I could have ever imagined. I have no pain, the recovery was easy, and I’m stronger and more confident than ever.

If you can relate to what I’ve said above, now is the time. Don’t suffer as long as I did.”

“Dr Cantor and his staff are fantastic. Dr Cantor takes the time to speak with his patients and answer any and all questions. I had two procedures on my spine in August after many years of pain, PT and injections. I am finally starting to feel like I am well on my way to recovery.”

“Dr. Cantor might be the best spinal surgeon in the world today . He is very well respected for his expertise in Spine surgery among other modalities and he is a pioneer in his field using the ultrasonic knife. It is definitely a game changer improving light years on traditional cervical and lumbar surgery.”
