"Spinal Surgery is a very definitive type of surgery with somewhat predictive complications of occurrences. We need to be responsible for teaching our patients what we know and what we don't know about their future before we do the index surgery."

      Ted and his staff are a gift from God. We had to deal with a traumatic injury to our child, and Ted and his team provided incredible medical support and a world class bedside manner.

      I have to recommend Dr. Wagner because he is the best doctor for scoliosis. I had my scoliosis surgery with him 8 yrs ago and until now I don't have any problem at all. He has done his best to treat all of the patients. He is very patient and knowledgeable. Thank God I met him. Thanks Dr. Wagner.

      Dr. Wagner is the most knowledgable Orthedpedic Doctor I have ever known. Dr. Wagner successfully did surgery on my 12 year old son's back after correctly diagnosing and repairing the problems. Tremondous talent, knowledge and dedication is how my family describes Dr. Wagner. The world is a better place because of Dr. Wagner's commitment!
