Dr. Edward Jung, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon is fantastic! I should have gone to him sooner for a serious back problem! I had been in excruciating pain for months. I did too many weeks of physical therapy before asking for an MRI. At our first meeting Dr. Jung showed me the MRI and took the time to clearly explain to me what was causing the pain and what surgery he could do that would alleviate the problem. He answered all our questions and instilled confidence. He is highly skilled, kind, knowledgeable and does minimally invasive surgery (small incisions) which results in faster recovery and minimal scarring. Dr. Jung’s outpatient surgery gave me immediate pain relief -- I was able to walk and climb stairs right after the surgery! Dr. Jung’s whole staff was wonderful, too. Hurray for Dr. Jung! I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Jung.

I've previously had two spinal fusions, from S1 to L3, 7 and 10 years ago. Via MRI, I was recently diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis L1-L2, presenting as a burning sensation and partial numbness in one foot. Other doctors told me that I needed another fusion, but they would not do it until I could no longer walk. Dr. Jung advised a minimally invasive Laminotemy procedure. This was done as an outpatient, and I was up and walking ~2 miles the next day! The burning has subsided about 50% immediately (the nerve can take up to a year to heal). I am very pleased with Dr. Jung, his staff & The Polyclinic in Seattle!

My husband has been in chronic pain for over 10 years, and this was his last straw. His shoulder was 3-5 inches lower than the other. We went and saw Dr. Jung at Pro Ortho, and was going to get the surgery scheduled there, but he moved to the Poly Clinic in Seattle. We had to wait longer for him, but it is WORTH the wait! My husband had a disk replacement and a foraminotomy. My husband stayed in the hospital for 3 days after the surgery, but once he got home and started to heal, he started to become his old self again. Not only did he save his life but this life changing surgery, but he gave me my husband back again! He continues to improve each and everyday. He listens to all of your concerns and answers all the question. He is such a good listener, if you don't understand he will explain it to you in a way you will understand it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me my husband back Dr. Jung.
