Dr. Wang is an extraordinary surgeon who in two surgeries gave me back my life. I visited Dr. Wang after I already had had five spine surgeries in our hometown in Indiana. I was in extreme pain and could not stand up straight for at least 7 years. He stated that I would need a "permanent" fix not the ones I had received from previous surgeries. Needless to say, I was very apprehensive when he explained the 2 days of surgeries; however, this was the best decision I've made in my entire life!! I now am standing tall and straight with pain level a zero to the most a 1. All of this was because of Dr. Wang. My surgery was intensive, but the healing and rehab have been miraculous. Would I recommend him? - WITHOUT A DOUBT OR HESITATION!

I think you’re one of the best back Drs I have ever come across. You say it the way it is give options and really are concerned about your patience’s and all do what’s best for them. You have done 2 back surgery’s on me and if I ever need more care you are the only one I will ever go to. I have talked to other people and several have been to you and love you and your bedside manners you have. Many Drs have forgotten them and it’s all about money to them. I have recommended you to many people and always tell them to see you if for nothing else a second opinion as know they will then go with you. Keep up the best excellent work good Drs are getting harder and harder to find. Yes you’re the greatest

I came to Dr. Wang for a second opinion. His thorough, gentle demeanor made me feel confident that the surgery I needed was necessary and confident in success of that surgery. He explained things in a very simple manner and went over the MRI in detail so that I fully understood what was going to be happening during surgery.

I have had back trouble on and off most of my life. In January 2018 I twisted my back and the pain came back with a vengeance. I went to therapy, did exercises, had injections and RFAs. Nothing worked. It was painful for me to walk and I could not stand up straight. One of my doctors referred me to Dr Mark Wang. He reviewed my problems with me and took XRAYs of my back. He recommended a decompression operation. After the operation I was immediately able to stand up straight and walk with very little pain. By the second day I was pain free. I had pain medicine but didn't take any as I had no pain. It has been several weeks now and I'm still pain free! When you meet Dr Wang you will immediately like him. Everyone I delt with at his office was very friendly and helpful. His surgical team is the best. If you are having back trouble, see Dr Wang. He's the best!
