Dr. Deepak Reddy is a fellowship-trained Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon who specializes in surgical treatment of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan with a degree in zoological anthropology and a cross disciplinary research focus on the biomechanics of walking. His medical degree and residency were completed at the University of Chicago Medical Center and his research interests continued as he investigated problems of the lumbar and cervical spine. He completed the prestigious Norton Leatherman spine fellowship, the second longest running spine fellowship in the country, and has settled in South Bend. He chose South Bend Orthopaedics because "they have assembled an all-star team of surgeons that I just had to be a part of." He has numerous affiliations with professional societies but most enjoys his time with the Cervical Spine Research Society. Dr. Reddy’s interests include travel, cars/motorcycles, and technology.

 

“I believe that surgery of the neck and back should always be a last resort. I don’t like to operate unless we are really going to make a positive functional change in an individuals life. In patients who have structural spine problems that have failed non-operative interventions, spine surgery may have a dramatic effect on their ability to enjoy daily actvities. We’ve made numerous advances in recent years developing more attractive options than what patients traditionally think of as “spine surgery.” From minimally invasive approaches to motion sparing devices that avoid fusion, our ability to treat the spine and relieve neurological symptoms has never been better. My goal is always to do the least amount of surgery needed to improve on a patient’s quality of life and get them back to moving as soon as safely possible.”

“I had nerve pain down the right leg to the ankle. I had to take a medical leave from work and limit my regular activities throughout this time. The surgery eliminated the nerve pain in my leg. I was able to return to work and to my regular activities. My experience with Dr. Reddy and his staff was very professional and very helpful. I would recommend SBO to others because of their professional expertise and my confidence in their ability to provide a successful outcome to my surgery.”

 “I was having extreme lower back pain that radiated into my right leg. My right leg had tingling in it, was going numb, and would occasionally go out on me causing me nearly to fall. The back pain I was having was so intense at times, that it was affecting my work, personal, and recreational life. I was only getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night, and I could neither stand nor sit for too long of a period.  The operation has been successful so far. The tingling, numbness and other issues with my right leg are completely gone. I would say my back pain has improved by about 80%, which in my eyes is a huge win. When you are 42, and have had severe back pain since your mid-twenties, I could not be more pleased with the little amount of issues I still experience.

Dr. Reddy has been the most approachable, down to earth, honest, caring, and up-front doctor I have ever worked with. When I first met Dr. Reddy, he was very approachable, he made you feel at home on the first meeting, like you have known him and been his patient for 5 years. He was honest and told me directly that “if it is not broke, I will not operate, I cannot fix something that is not broken.” I appreciate and respect those statements and values. Dr. Reddy is professional, but yet fun and down to earth.  I can’t wait to tell anyone I run into how good I feel, you really do feel like a different person. Everyone that I personally know that has back pain as severe as I did, I don’t hesitate to tell them to go see Dr. Reddy at SBO. It changed my life for the better, and I know that the success that Dr. Reddy had with my back can happen to others, and why not go through the discomfort of a surgery, for a long term solution.”

 “I had pain down my left arm and numbness/tingling that kept me from sleeping for about 2 months.  It's hard to say but it looks like maybe some old sports injuries caught up to me and ultimately I injured myself lifting some of my players golf bags. My arm pain and numbness was gone immediately after surgery, I was able to get great rest and became a happy person to be around. My experience was excellent. The staff was very professional yet genuinely personable. The important thing with Dr. Reddy is that I felt comfortable with him right away. He was open and honest about everything but also gave me an immediate sense of trust - which is really important in a patient/doctor relationship.”
