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.

I have recommended Dr Stadlan & the Hospital to many.
Dr Stadlan was not present at the appointment due to an emergency. The nurse said he would call me, but he has not yet called me.
Dr Stadlan always takes the time to explain and answer my questions.
I came in thinking that I had back problems. He agreed that I do have back problems. But he suggested that I see a hip specialist just in case it was a hip . He didn't want to operate on my back and find out that the hip was the problem. I subsequently went to a hip specialist who said that I definitely need a hip replacement. If in fact it is my back, I will come back to Dr. Stadlan . I am waiting to get my hip replaced. I appreciate Dr. Stadlan's thoughts and suggestions about my hip.
*Dr. Stadlan has made me for 4-5 surgery over 4-5 years he was wonderful helping and doing for me. He is literally the best I have had.
Dr. Stadlan is easy to talk to, explains the situation clearly and leaves me confident in the treatment decision.
the best excellent
One of the drugs I was prescribed I would've declined on the spot had I known more about its chemistry and side-effects.

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