After getting hurt while working as an RN in 2020, Dr. Janssen was the 6th provider I had seen in a 3 month period. He was straight forward and confident in what I needed in order to have the best chances of a full recovery and quality of life. After a long fight with worker’s compensation I was approved for the surgery he recommended. Dr Janssen fused my lower back in December of 2021. 9 months later my nerve pain is gone and my back stabilized. Now he is helping me figure out what the next step is in my recovery. I never thought I would look forward to the next procedure in hopes of becoming completely pain free after over 2 years. I recommend him to everyone I talk to about orthopedic surgeons. He is straight forward, honest, and ensures his patients understand the education he provides. Dr. Janssen’s staff is amazing as well; Racheal, Anna Maria, and all the staff in his office, Thank you to everyone for always returning phone calls/emails. It shows respect and professionalism.
