I didn’t get into working out until 3 years ago when I lost my father. My therapy was constantly working out and running. Fast forward to a few months ago when I had to cancel running the NYC marathon due to disc degeneration and herniation. I was devastated but Dr. Senatus educated me on what the risks were with my condition. Because of his calm demeanor, bedside manner and expertise I decided to go ahead with a one level lumbar fusion. I am now 7 weeks post surgery and can actually feel my foot. And though I feel I didn’t prepare myself for the recovery process, Dr. Senatus continues to be there for me and my family every step of the way. I will continue praising him as a doctor and as a person. And will recommend him to anyone who listens.

Review of Dr. Patrick Senatus, New York City.

The experience that I, my wife Denise, and the entire family had with Dr. Patrick Senatus, his entire Staff, from the very first office consultation, up to and throughout the surgical procedure, including his team of professionals at Mount Sinai West Hospital, was nothing less than an incredible blessing! My wife Denise had been suffering from degenerative disc disease for quite some time. Denise’s primary care physician had recommended Dr. Patrick Senatus as a second opinion consultation. We were so happy that we had the second opinion consultation. Dr. Senatus made us feel so at ease. His humility, compassion, and outstanding bedside manner, and genuine concern about my wife’s condition, with the willingness to take time and listening to all of our questions, was so reassuring that it really made us feel confident in choosing him to perform her surgery. Denise had two prosthetic discs, Mobi-C’s, inserted into her cervical spine between C7-C6, C6-C5 on 3/10/17.

She has no more pain, and is feeling practically almost no post surgery discomfort! We highly recommend Dr. Patrick Senatus, he is a great neurosurgeon with amazing skillful hands and an awesome human being!

Review of Dr. Patrick Senatus, New York City.

I have to say that this was the best decision I have ever made. I’m very grateful and thankful. I’ve been suffering with lower back pain for many years. I was seen by many doctors and have tried everything from pain management, physical therapy, radio-frequency ablation and pain meds which only ever gave me temporary relief. I was on schedule to have surgery with another neurosurgeon but I was referred to Neurosurgeon Dr. Patrick Senatus to get a 2nd opinion before my surgery. I met Dr. Senatus at his manhattan office. He was a distinguished, knowledgeable, caring doctor. He explained to me everything I needed to know and what needed to be done to correct my worsening condition. He was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. My surgery was successful! His bedside manners are outstanding. He also has the best staff, able help and guide me along the way. I felt comfortable reaching out with any concerns. If you’re looking for a Neurosurgeon who is professional, knowledgeable, competent and patient, look no further. These are some of the qualities that distinguish him from the others. After so many years off constant lower back pain, I feel Blessed to have had Dr. Senatus make it possible for me to enjoy life again.
