Very much. I am [now] able to walk without difficulty.
[Dr. Amin] takes the time necessary to answer all of my questions. I feel no apprehension when visiting with him. He gives me his full attention and I look forward to my appointments with him, as I know I will benefit from his recommendations. I highly recommend Dr. Amin.

I do believe the surgery Dr. Amin performed greatly improved my condition. Almost immediately after surgery, I was getting feeling back into my legs, a few days later I started getting feeling back in my feet. I can honestly say that I now enjoy many benefits after having surgery. I can now return to work, fish drive a car, play with my kids and be able to function normally like before my surgery.
Dr. Amin’s skills as a surgeon saved my life by giving me back the gifts that God gave to me, Pre-surgery was the worst pain and discomfort I had ever felt in my life. Knowing that I had one of the best surgeons performing my surgery gave me a great sense of peace and comfort.
Dr. Amin was patient, kind caring and took time to go over my problem and the surgical procedure. He was awesome and I can’t thank him enough for correcting my problem and giving me my life back.
I would say to anyone considering surgery with Dr. Amin to rest assured you have a great doctor that cares and more importantly is the best at what he does. He is truly gifted by God’s hands and can perform miracles to help anyone with spinal problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Amin to anyone that requires surgery on their spine. If I ever need surgery again, I would go back to Dr. Amin in the future.

Definitely consider Dr. Amin if you are investigating whether or not to have surgery. He told me he could get me back on the golf course. Dr. Amin delivered on his promises. You have to perform your pre-hab and post-hab physical therapy as part of the equation for your health. Dr. Amin will do his part to help you. He is the best!
I am able to resume normal activities without back pain. I exercise 5 days a week to help maintain my back muscles via both core exercise and weight training. As a result of the surgery and exercise, I can play golf again which was of most importance to me.

Dr. Amin has a very good bedside manner and is very good to explain the issues and how it can be repaired. Before surgery, I was afraid to do much of anything due to the pain. It hurt to drive a vehicle, walk or sit. Now my life is back to the way it was before the injury.
JAMES SIMMONS, ESSEX, IL
In addition to being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Amin is great at communicating the issue, the procedure and post-surgery expectations. He was very receptive to answering all of my questions and concerns. I have a very active lifestyle… after 6 weeks of physical therapy; I was able to resume all activities. Eight months after surgery, I participated in a back country hunt in rugged terrain with no issues.
