DR. DEREK A. DUKE, MD, FACS - THE SPINE AND BRAIN INSTITUTE REVIEWS
I can not say enough amazing things about Dr.Duke and his staff. They went above and beyond to make my back surgery happen when we found out last minute my insurance was ending in just a few days. Having back surgery can be a stressful decision, but Dr.Duke took the time to explain everything and made me feel at ease about the procedure. I had been living with chronic back pain for years and thought that would just be my life. My surgery was life changing. I am forever grateful for Dr.Duke, he gave me my life back. I highly recommend him and his staff.
Dr Duke is the absolute best! He explains the issue and what is required to remediate the problem. If surgery is not an appropriate option, he will tell you. If it is the only option, he will tell you that as well. His office is well run and efficient. He performed my surgery and I am painfree and fully functional and have resumed a vigorous exercise program. I have Dr Duke to thank for that.
Dr. Derek Duke is the best doctor I’ve ever met. He had such a beautiful demeanor and cares about his patients. He was truly concerned and got me into surgery the very next day. His staff is also wonderful and very helpful. The office is nice and clean. I just love this place.

JEFFREY GROSS, MD - SPINE REVIEWS
I highly recommend Dr.Gross if you need a Spine Neurosurgeon. He thoroughly exams your medical records because he wants to help people by relieving their pain. Plus...Dr. Gross spends time every visit and listens to your needs and concerns while showing compassion. He is definitely not your typical doctor. You can hear his passion about his profession in his voice when he talks to you. Also, Samar (office staff) is beyond kind! She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable in the waiting room. They both genuinely care about the patience that enter their office. We need more people like Dr.Gross and Samar in this world:))). His office is located in Henderson, Nevada.
Unfortunately, I suffered 6 herniations in a car accident while traveling in Arizona. I tried to find the best Spinal neurosurgeon I could as the pain was pretty severe. I asked several of my other doctors and the name that came up seemed to be consistent. Dr. Jeffrey Gross has the education and extensive medical background that my other doctors felt comfortable in recommending him. Dr. Gross is not one of those physicians that is quick to operate. Instead, he looks for other solutions. So I found a doctor who has a great education, great medical background, is not overly quick to do surgery and is pleasant to speak with. I think I made a very good choice as I now have had multiple 1/2 hour to hour long appointments where he has carefully and thoroughly examines me. He is a great doctor and I am lucky to have found him as I learn to live with my injuries.
Dear Dr. Gross and staff – thank you, thank you, thank you for taking so much time and care with addressing my chronic back pain. I was never given so much education, information and options before and am quite excited about your work in stem cells. I am looking forward to fixing my spine and getting rid of my pain with your skilled help. You are the best.
