Written Patient Success Stories

Dear Dr Ngu,
I know that you will be pleased to hear that your marvelous handiwork has been put to the test and found to be much more than sufficient! After a 3,000 mile road trip followed closely by air travel to Switzerland with extensive hiking in the mountains, I am thrilled to report that I am doing extremely well. I thank God for providing you to operate on my spine and for healing that He had accomplished through your hands. May the grace and peace of the Lord abound in your life as you serve Him. In Christ, J. Chambrier.


Well, as much as I love dr. ngu, I'm working on my 3rd surgery I'm now looking to have my spine fused in my L4-L5 at 19 y/o. I go wayy back with dr. ngu as hes done 2 surgeries on my mom and one on my dad.. with my parents, he took other precautions & steps before rushing into surgery.. With me, my disc was herniated so bad, he kinda rushed me right into surgery (3 days after my 1st appointment with him, 10 days before christmas) -and I really regret that because I would have liked to see if something else may have helped. On the other hand, I had been in so much pain for 6 months, and going to a million different doctors, and no one would even do an M.R.I on me, and without the m.r.i Dr.Ngu wouldn't see me.. Once I finally convinced my PCP to schedule an M.R.I Dr.Ngu found the problem immediately. really my only problem is I just wish he wouldn't have rushed me into surgery, because after the 1st surgery things just kinda went down the tube.

I think Dr. Ngu is a very good surgeon. I spent years going to other Neurologists and specialists without any clear results. Dr. Ngu got to the heart of the problem and my lumbar spinal fusion went without a hitch. Bedside manner afterwards was just "so-so" but I was in so much pain that maybe it was just me. I was back to work within 6 weeks and although after almost 5 years I still have pain, I believe it is because I never took off the extra weight that I should have. Were he not so far away from me, I'd go to him again in a heartbeat. As it is, i'm looking for someone a bit closer to help me out with my cervical issues.

Had neck surgery back in August '09. Given the nature of the surgery (titanium plate and screws to stretch out C5-C7 to prevent nerve impingement), I am amazed at how quickly I recovered. I feel like a million bucks and I highly reccomend him.

Worked on c6-c7 Anterial Fusion. Got me back to comfort in the neck. Due to Active Duty I'm awaiting authorization for corrective multi-level fusion in the l4-s1 region. Dr Ngu is working on another Dr's work. I've got permission to proceed with the surgery and can't wait for Dr Ngu to do this job. Dr and staff kept us informed and took care of the insurance paper work. Great bedside manners while in hospital. Nurses could tell which Dr did my neck work just by the recovery time alone. As a firefighter for the Navy you train people to gain thier trust in order to go into a space to fight fires. I have trust in this man and his staff. Sadler Clinic has a wonderful staffing of Dr's and Nurses. 5 Star recomendations. Daniel W Darling
