Chris Venis, Hillsborough, NJ spine surgery
A common question following surgery from friends and loved ones is, "how are you feeling?" It is very simple, Wow! After an exhaustive search for the right doctor, I am happy to report that the wait was worth it. Dr. Matthew Cunningham is second to none.

Dr. Cunningham, well known for his more complicated cases, took my herniated disc/stenosis case. He and his staff worked quickly to get me into the office as my pain was debilitating. His diagnosis was perfect; he spent quality time with me and answered all the questions I had. What impressed me the most was his calm and comforting demeanor. He spent a lot of time with me discussing the diagnosis and allowed me to make the decision for surgery: not pushing me, as I found at other doctors offices. I highly recommend Dr. Cunningham for any spinal procedure. He is the best doctor that I've ever dealt with.
