“Dr. Lindley while working at another hospital redid a prior fusion surgery that had been done incorrectly by a different surgeon. When I was having other issues with my spine, I saw him at the Heartland Orthopedic Specialist, and he performed surgery. He is an excellent surgeon and is very caring. If I ever have more spine issues, I will see him again.”

“Dr. Lindley performed a spinal fusion on my lower back. The entire procedure was well explained, the pain was quickly controlled, and the results were excellent. I have had several methods at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists with different providers over the past few years, and I have always been pleased with each one.”

“Typical chest pain is not only painful but frustrating. There are no fixes without a precise diagnosis. Just the implication that you're a drug seeker or are making it up. Life is dismal when you feel doomed to a life of constant pain. The best way to describe my pain. On good days felt like I was wearing a life jacket three sizes too small 24x7x365. The worst days are beyond description; nothing touches the pain. That was my life for four years. Thanks to Dr. Andrews and Dr. Lindley, I have my life back!!! I now have a spinal cord stimulator that eliminates that pain. I'm becoming more active, walking 10,000+ steps a day, rejoining activities that I've enjoyed, I am outside this summer, I can participate in our household and do so many things! I'm regaining my mind - didn't realize how much of my brain was consumed with breathing - each breath was painful and required thought, so did every motion of torso, shoulders, arms. Now that I can breathe again, I'm starting to do things that I haven't been able to do mentally in years! In short, I love my spinal cord stimulator! PS - named it Calgon because it takes the pain away! Can't speak highly enough of Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, Dr. Andrews, and Dr. Lindley! Thank You!”

“Dr. Lindley is incredible! I have had prior back surgery and suffered from back and leg pain for most of my adult life. After exhausting every nonsurgical option, he suggested a spine fusion. I was nervous and had lots of questions. Dr. Lindley took time to explain all of my scans, talk about my pain and symptoms, and explain how this surgery would help my case . I feel like a new person, pain-free and enjoying life! I am forever grateful to Dr. Lindley for giving me my life back.”

“Dr. Lindley performed a foraminotomy on my lower back. I was very pleased from my first visit through the entire surgical procedure. Dr. Lindley took the time to show me the MRI and to explain why I was in horrific, unbearable, lower back pain. He also explained the surgical procedure and recovery time. I was and am very pleased with the surgical results. After 11 weeks recovery, I am back on the pickleball court hitting friendly pickleballs and plan to play in a tournament mid-March! We need more surgeons like Dr. Lindley with his reputation and expertise! Many, many, thanks to a gifted surgeon for relieving my back pain.”
