Professional Statement

*Please note that Dr. Loutzenhiser specializes in spine issues. Please be aware when booking an Orthopedic Consultation that he sees patients for back or neck issues only.* Lonnie E. Loutzenhiser, MD, a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon, joined Panorama Orthopedics & Spine Center in September 2008. Dr. Loutzenhiser was accepted into an accelerated medical program out of high school and completed three years of undergraduate training at Youngstown State University, where he graduated cum laude. Dr. Loutzenhiser received his medical degree from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and completed his surgical internship and orthopedic residency at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, where he was chief resident for his final year. He completed his orthopaedic/neurosurgical spine fellowship at the Rocky Mountain Spine Clinic. Dr. Loutzenhiser is interested in operative and non-operative treatment of adult and pediatric spinal disorders including deformity, and traumatic and degenerative conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. He also has a special interest in minimally invasive surgical techniques and motion preservation technology (e.g., disc replacement surgery). Dr. Loutzenhiser believes in not only the treatment of spinal disorders but also the treatment of patients. He feels that it is important to build a solid physician-patient relationship by listening to the patient and educating him or her about the condition so that he or she can be involved in the decision-making process of treatment options.

Explains diagnosis in detail and understandable. Pleasant personality and easy to discuss issues with. Takes time to listen and give answers. I am an avid cyclist and very active. After 3 months from the surgery, I started lightly ride my bike again. After 5 months I was back in shape to the Santa Fe Half Century Ride. It is now 7 months and my back feels stable and strong. I really happy that I made the decision to have the surgery.

Love him!! Could not have asked for a better surgeon. I feel 100% better than post surgery. He fixed my back and I am looking forward to the rest of my life with no pain.

Dr. Loutenhiser was dressed inappropriately and unshaven. When he and his scribe first came in I was unsure of who the doctor was! The unshaven look is popular but not for a doctor, plus he came in wearing jeans and a t-shirt that looked like they had been slept in! I would expect that he at least wear a casual pair of pants and at the very least a sport shirt! He told me he would not do surgery but had no real "next step" solutions other than things that I have already tried and have been unsuccessful.

I have been very pleased with Dr. Loutzenhiser. He did spinal surgery on my back 3 months ago, and I have been very pleased with his service. If I have a complaint, it would be that waiting in the waiting room can be extensive at times. As for trusting my doctor, Dr. Loutzenhiser is fantastic! I highly recommend him.

I'm totally thrilled with the results of my recent lumbar surgery not to mention the great personal care I've received since first appealing to Dr Loutzenhizer for help in ending the chronic pain that has put a damper on my life for years on end. It's been only a couple of weeks since going under the knife, but I'm able to drive already and even able to sit comfortably in a movie theater through an entire feature film...something that has been impossible for me for years. What can I do but send out a a big warm and heart-felt thank you to Dr Lonnie, his staff and the care team at Panorama & Colorado Ortho Hospital. I am forever indebted!

So thankful that Dr Loutzenhiser was on duty when I was airlifted to St Anthony after a horrific ski accident with little to no feeling in my legs. 3 weeks later I'm walking.. Outstanding job fixing my shattered vertebra and now I'm on my way to a full recovery. I am forever grateful to you.

Everything went well, but the wait was long while we were in the exam room. He was running behind and the room was hot and no one checked in on us at all. It would have been nice to offer us a drink rather than my son having to seek someone out.
