Dr. Rosenow was extremely nice to work with and took good care of me during the surgery. The outcome was a little bit better than expected. Follow up was made easier than a 60 minute drive into Chicago from my home in a televist which worked very well.

I will never go anywhere but to Northwestern for my chronic pain/failed back syndrome. Specifically, Dr. Rosenow explains everything thoroughly, without making me feel as if he is speaking down to me like so many times happens. He's upbeat and makes me feel as if I can and will get my chronic pain under control with the SCS.

In my first encounter with Dr. Rosenow, I found him to be a very considerate person. He took the initiative to inform us early in the day that he was going to be a bit late to my appointment and asked if I would be able to arrange my schedule to come later to the appointment. I really appreciated that! .At that appointment I found him to be very courteous, knowledgeable, and concerned for my thoughts and questions regarding surgery.
