Why is my wife's doctor only in the office one day per week? why can't we leave a message for him to call you back? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he's in surgery when not at his desk. And it seem incredible to us that

I can barely begin to describe the horrible experience my wife has had to endure in an effort to alleviate her back pain. I believe that my wife has had two terrible, unsuccessful surgeries performed by a doctor at Midwest spine institute.

I think everyone should go see and get other options from different doctors. Im only 29 and i feel like my life is over. I was hurt back in 2011 and my life has changed for the worst after all my surgeries I'm in pain every day I have two

Excellent outcome from discectomy of L4-L5 disc. Absolutely terrible customer service. People that answer the phone will always send you to a "press 1 for.." sort of robotic system. When you come to the end of your three minutes...

Having several injections in different states and facilities, I was pleasantly pleased as to how easy it went at the Stillwater Midwest Spine Institute.
I felt pampered and taken care of, with all my questions answered and even those I

I can relate to what horse34 said 100%! Dr. Saeger cares more about his paychecks then the people he sees. He is not up to date on any of the new procedures in the field of his practice either. For instance I asked him If MSI will be doing PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. He had no idea what I was talking about. He came up with some bs and said it wasnt FDA approved which is interesting because it is all you need is the approved centrifuge. Tiger Woods and Hines ward of the Steelers have both had this type of therapy with great success. He did the crystal ball thing to me as well. That is uncalled for!! I requested records from him and as I was looking though them he used inaccurate medical terms for my condition!!! The nurses are not much better. I asked one what would happen next if the last set of nerve blocks didn't work and she said "I don't know, we will just have to shoot you then." This is not made up! If there is ever a next time I will record all of this bs! Maybe I have been treated like this because im only 20? When I first to MSI I met with Steven Lawson -PA. I read his report and that was bogus as well. He said I had a 100% range of motion which was surprising because Thomas Rieser said it was far less then that. I looked into Steven Lawsons eduction and he has a degree In Cellular/Molecular Biology: ok? He sould be researching mesenchymal adult stem cells or IPS adult stem cells not practicing medical malpractice. Does this give him the right to say this at all? Thomas Rieser is really the only person that has done a somewhat good job and MSI. The only complaint is he is booked so heavy the appointment only last like 10mins; this is ridiculous!

For all you people struggling and need addition help I wold suggest you go to www.spine-health this is and excellent site for help. Help that MSI will not give you! I am looking at www.regenexx for a fix to my injury. I am following someones progress at website healingmyback.blogspot. I wish good luck to all of you with spinal injuries and I hope someday; this kind of nonsense is nonexistent.

Pros: Good with injections-

Cons: Bad Staff! Very Unorganized! I dont trust anyone there!

Both Dr. Sinicropi and Dr. Saeger have been wonderful. I previously took my son to the University of MN and Twin City Spine, and to a neurosurgion with no successful care or treatment of relentless and chronic spine pain post head-on MVA by a drunk in 2005. I spent two years daily watching my son try and end his llife and listen to him tell me the ways he could think of to end his life. I dished out medications daily and trips to ER regularly for shots for severe episodes. Since treating with Dr. Sinicropi and Dr. Saeger, I no longer give out pain meds, just usual daily meds, and I no longer try fighting with a 200 pound 30 year old trying to take an overdose of medications for pain relief. This is my last stop. I will not be getting second opinions anywhere. It took me from 2005 to find doctors who actually treated "the pain" which is saving the nerves that make his arms and legs and head function. My son has undergone neck surgery and injections in his neck and low back and will be undergoing low back surgery in the future. I find Dr. Sinicropi and Dr. Saeger's guidance to be accurate and their skills to be impeccable. I now have some time for myself and my son is able to work short hours. If I had initially sought care and treatment at Midwest Spine Institute for my son I may have saved my professional job. As it was, I retired young with very low income and loss of lifetime health benefits. Choosing to treat with Midwest Spine is an excellent choice.

Pros: EXCELLENT DIAGNOSTIC AND PAIN RELIEF PROCEDURES

Cons: Distance. I travel from Wisconsin to Midwest Spine Institut

.

I have seen Dr. Saeger more than once in the last 5 years of my illness. Some of his treatments helped and some didn't. Imagine what a hard job it is to work with peoples nerves and spines! I believe the doctors there do the best that they can for their patients, and Dr. Saeger has been nothing but polite and infomative to me as to what to expect before and after treatments. Over all the staff at midwest are caring and helping people.

Pros: Great Doctor

This is written in defense of the Spine Institute. Contrary to horse34, both my husband and I were very impressed with Dr. Saeger and his staff. I had complete elimination of my pain after 2 days, my husband yet to be determined. We found the staff all to be very accomodating beginning with the receptionist until we left. I will definitely go back there should the pain recur !

Pros: caring, courteous staff

Cons: cool room (needed to be though)

I had a second spine injection for my back and the doctor Struck a nerve and that caused the muscles in my left leg to bunch up like a charlie-horse but way worse than that. I was crying really hard and Dr. Louis Saeger still finished the injection like he didn't care at all! When I got up from the table, I asked for a prescription pain reliever, which I got later. Then I asked one of the techs to get my mother who was in the waiting room. She came immediately, and when Dr Saeger came in, she asked him when the pain in my leg would go away? He then said,"I don't know, but I have a crystal ball over there and we'll see what it says." Then my Mother proceeded to tell her how rude Dr Saeger was to us, and she defended him and said that he's a good doctor and a good man. She did not like us staying past our welcome! Very rude service, and I will never go back to see anyone for injections at Midwest Spine Institute. I have never been treated so bad in all my life!
