I traveled 2,700 miles from Central America to Tampa, Fl to get help from Dr. Prada, and I would do it again. He and his staff are absolutely number 1! Just 4 weeks after the procedure, my life is back to normal. I am very happy we found ..."

"Dr. Stefan Prada was recommended to me for a second opinion after I had a car wreck and needed neck/back surgery. I am soooo thankful that he was because I knew after (really before) the first appointment consultation was over that HE was not only the best choice but the only choice of whom I trusted my surgery with. His vast knowledge, experience, accolades, raw talent, and personable demeanor were ..."

"Dr. Prada was recommended to me by two prior patients. I was scheduled for mine locally in IL, but after getting a second opinion from Dr. Prada, I traveled 1200 miles to get my less invasive surgery the next week. Communication with Michelle was incredible and staff was outstanding. Their process through the pre, day of, and post-op was perfectly organized. I felt very comfortable the whole time. ..."
