A good word means a lot

Patient testimonials

It’s always the word of mouth that’s the best advice. Here are some of ours…


Dr. Liauw is the best!

This was my second lumbar surgery with Dr. Liauw. Both were very successful, with no complications. His competence and professional demeanor, were a large factor in my lack of stress. At age 75, confidence in the doctor is a huge factor, both pre- and post surgery. Dr. Liauw, and his very good P.A., Ms. Lauren Heinz, were always prompt with responding to questions. I will continue to recommend Dr. Liauw. A doctor’s interaction, on a personal level, with a patient, is so important. Dr Liauw is the best!

Huge thumbs up!

I went in because of a tumor that needed to be removed from my thoracic spine. Dr. Liauw is a highly specialized qualified surgeon. His background and education is impressive within itself. Johns Hopkins, Stanford and more. His hands are golden and so is his heart. I feel so lucky to have found such a brilliant and compassionate surgeon. My surgery was a month ago and I am doing excellent and the surgery could not have gone better. My balance has literally improved to normal. Huge thumbs up!

Tremendous part of my healing and recovery

Dr. Liauw has been a tremendous part of my healing and recovery from my spinal cord injury. I was paralyzed from the chest down prior to surgery and now I am 100% independent and walking unassisted. Dr. Liauw is not only a highly skilled neurosurgeon but he has amazing bedside manner. He always takes the time to answer all my questions and I never feel rushed during my appointments. I want to thank Dr. Liauw for getting me back on my feet so I can live a full and normal life.

Has a wonderful way of explaining the process

I was referred to Dr. Liauw by Dr. Pham, my regular physician to get a second opinion on pain and right leg numbness. We met and I explained my situation. He listened and then explained what he could do. He requested a copy of my MRI and two days later my wife and I had a second visit with him. He made us both feel very comfortable about considering surgery. The surgery was performed and 8 weeks later, no pain! He is easy to talk with and has a wonderful way of explaining the process.


David D. in Ladera Ranch


Professional, attentive and compassionate

I have found Dr. Liauw to be extremely thorough, professional, attentive, and compassionate thru-out the entire time that I have been under his care. Unfortunately over the years I have had several surgeries and medical issues. I saw firsthand while I was in the hospital how Dr. Liauw treated everyone with respect. Compared to my past doctors it?s easy to see why the hospital staff thinks so highly of him. I can say without a doubt that Dr. Liauw and his staff (especially Rose) are the best.


Mark S. in Rancho Santa Margarita


Dr. Liauw is the best in his field!

Dr. Liauw is the best in his field! He’s very caring, trust worthy and confident in his work. He performed a complicated surgery and took great care of me before and after the surgery and had my mind at ease throughout the entire process. I am writing this testimonial to put other patient’s mind at ease when choosing Dr. Liauw. The staff was also great, always very helpful and got back to me very promptly in regards with scheduling and answering any questions I had. I highly recommend Dr. Liauw

Robert H. in Laguna Hills


He gave me my life back!

I woke up one morning with the worst pain in my life. I had pain shooting from my back to my left leg and could not walk. I tried physical therapy and some acupuncture that really didn’t help. I saw Dr Liauw who was so patient and informative. He gave me several options and I decided on surgery. He gave me my life back!


James R. in Downey


He’s the most compassionate Doctor

Dr. Liauw was called to assess my Nana for a spine fracture and he was able to provide hope in repairing her back. My Nana underwent spine surgery at the age of 80yrs old and could not be more satisfied by the level of care Dr. Liauw provided. He s the most compassionate Doctor I have ever met, he was super nice to my nana and most importantly he explained everything thoroughly so that my family and myself could understand. I thank GOD for putting Dr. Liauw in our health path!


Sonia C. in Aliso Viejo


What an awesome guy!

Dr. Jason Liauw! The best surgeon that I have ever encountered out of 6. He operated on my lower lumbar, added spacers and put in 2 titanium rods that rendered my back feeling so much relief in a short period of time. After the surgery he came to see me everyday to make sure that I was comfortable. He has the nicest bedside manner of any neurosurgeon in the world. What an awesome guy. He took consideration to where I was going to rehab my spine after surgery. He cared a lot. That was unusual.

Rick U. in Laguna Hills


I truly appreciate his skill and talent!

After several years of increasing back and leg pain, I decided to do something to resolve and put an end to the relentless pain and loss of mobility. Dr. Liauw provided me with the confidence to pursue surgery to repair L2- through S-2. Immediately after the surgical procedure I noticed my leg pain was gone and I was amazed with this excellent result. Following guidance from Dr. Liauw and his staff, I experienced a slow but certain recovery process. I am now 2 months after surgery and improving well beyond my expectations. I saw the X-Rays of my post-surgical spine and as an engineer I was truly impressed with the complex work and new apparatus Dr. Liauw expertly installed to stabilize and support my lower spine. I truly appreciate his skill and talent. Onward and upward.

Dr. Liauw, Lauren and entire office staff are amazing. I have recommended practice to several people. Dr Liauw’s operative skills are incredible and did surgery for me that other neurosurgeons won’t recommend or do.


Laurel F. in Laguna Hills


What an amazing experience!

I came to Dr. Liauw in extreme pain. My previous medical evaluations from other doctors was “nothing can be done.“ Doctor Liauw said I think we can give you a chance at a full recovery. He was right! He put my crushed vertebrae back together and I am now pain free. Thank you Dr. Liauw and your terrific staff!

The recovery went very well, far exceeding my expectations

Dr. Liauw performed a hemilaminectomy on L2, L3, L4 & L5 on 3/28/2019. When I came out of recovery the pain that I had in my legs and hips before surgery was gone. Staff at Mission Laguna hospital had me up and walking the night of the procedure. I was discharged to home about 30 hours post-op. The recovery went very well, far exceeding my expectations. Walking around the house (stairs included) was no problem. Within 6 days of surgery, my steps exceeded 1 mile and within 9 days post-op I was walking over 2 miles (total steps). Fourteen days after surgery, I was released back to work!

My husband and I, Ken Witt, have been seeing Dr. Liauw for two years. Never have we been under the care of a Dr. and his staff who have been so supportive and understanding.
