The goal of any treatment is to maximize neurological function and minimize pain. There are many possible reasons for a patient to have pain, and it is necessary to first understand why the patient has pain, and only then correlate that information with imaging such as MRI scans. Advanced technology is useful only when used to treat problems that will respond to it. Sometimes the best option is the simplest, and perhaps not even surgery. The patient should be given as much information as necessary to make an informed decision regarding treatment.

it was important to me to have a doctor who really down to earth, Dr Stadlan is a great doctor
dr stadlans whole staff are wonderful
Because I was not experiencing the intense back pain at the immediate moment I had the appointment, doctor basically told me nothing could be done. this had been an on-going issue and I wanted a diagnosis to understand what was going on. I was told to have x ray taken to rule out the possibility of cancer. then I get test results of X-ray with no mention of if there was any cancer. when I ask about cancer they tell me that not why the x ray was taken... basically dismissed again. as for other leg pain, I am told therapy. not very helpful. I would not go to this doctor again.
Dr, Stadlan was our icc$
Although Dr. Stadlen was courtesy in the past, this last visit was considered a 6 month post-op visit and appeared as though my concerns were not listened and understood. He past all concerns to other doctors. it just seems as though it's a good way for Northshore to be making extra money by referring issues to other Specialists and then have to wait possibly months to see that specialist. I understand that everybody has their own specialty but Dr. Stadlen clearly understood the issue that I was having on the concerns regarding pain.
my experience have been very good!
The visit felt rushed. Polite physician but I could tell he was on a time constraint. I drove an hour to spend 5 minutes with a Dr. I didn't leave feeling well informed of the risk/benefits of the plan of care. I left with unanswered questions because I didn't ask them for fear of taking up too much time.
Dr Stadlan was very professional and knowledgeable. I was confident in his expertise and appreciative of the time he and his staff spent with me.
excellent care. very thorugh exam. dr could not help but did refer me to 2 excellent reviewed drs
Good doctor, I have recommended him to others

Noam Stadlan, MD, NorthShore...the trend that excites me is one that sounds extremely boring: data and outcomes.
