  • “Before my surgery on my back I could barley walk fifty feet. Numbness, pain in my legs and groin area. After surgery I am able to walk pretty much pain free, and I am less than two weeks from my surgery.  I am getting stronger every day.  Dr. Cheney and his staff are wonderful. Would highly recommend. Thank you.”

  • “Dr. Cheney operated on my lower back on July 5, 2016. After the surgery I was without pain for the first time in years. Dr. Cheney explained the procedure with me before surgery. He said I would be completely healed in 2 months and I am. Dr. Cheney is a great surgeon.”

  • “My experience with The Bone & Joint Center has been great. Dr. Cheney has been very helpful and informative from day one. My spinal surgery has changed my life. Since my surgery, I can walk for distances without my legs going numb. I can play with my grandchildren without my legs tiring so easily. I now can get in and out of my Jeep with ease. My standard of living has changed greatly!”

  • “I could not have been more happy with my experience with Dr. Cheney. From the first meeting until he told me I was going home from the hospital, he impressed me. I felt confident in his care and well informed as to what my health issue was and how he was going to address it.”

  • “It is an understatement to say that I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Robert Cheney. He has provided me with a very high level of care and professionalism. Dr. Cheney operated on my back on May 10, 2016 and now, two months later, I am doing extremely well - the surgery was a total success, there was no infection and my symptoms are gone. This is why, in my opinion, you do your research and select the best surgeon you can find, then have the confidence that doctor will take care of you - from diagnosis to surgery to recovery. I would like to add that Dr. Cheney's staff was also very helpful and supportive - Dan (nurse) and Kelly (administrator) are the two names that come to mind.”

  • “After very quick diagnosis by Dr. Hedderman referred to Dr. Cheney who replaced 2 discs and installed titanium plate. Outstanding result. No pain and nerve damage caused by pinching of nerves reversed significantly. Highly recommend both Docs whenever the opportunity presents itself.”

  • “Before my laminectomy and bone grafting, I was in so much pain that I had difficulty sitting, standing, driving my car and taking care of my 91 year old mother. Since the surgery I'm pain free. My spine hasn't been pain free in at least 20 years. I kept putting off the surgery and now wish I had not. Dr. Cheney helped me so much. The staff in his office are so caring and professional.”

  • “I had been suffering from spinal stenosis and a herniated disc for almost 4 months. On June 7, 2016 I had spine surgery with Dr. Cheney. Dr. Cheney stated that the majority of the people that have this surgery have instant relief.  As soon as I awoke from the surgery I had absolutely no pain. My family and I were absolutely stunned. God bless Dr. Cheney he is a miracle doctor.”

  • “Two years ago, I had walked into The Bone & Joint Center with an appointment with Dr. Cheney. I sat down and explained all of my symptoms. He said my symptoms could have been one of two things, so he ordered an MRI. I went back for a follow-up and immediately, he pointed out in my MRI what was was wrong. He really took the time to show me the MRI and thoroughly explain it to me. He recommended surgery, which I opted to do. As I was walking into Albany Medical Center the day of my surgery, I was a little nervous. Once Dr. Cheney walked into the room, I felt a sense of relief. He assured me everything was going to be ok. I felt at ease and not nervous anymore. They also threw in a little humor in the OR room I was being wheeled in, which helped. After a few hours in recovery, I was wheeled up to a room with other patients that had surgery. That night, I was up and walking with very little help from the nurse. Next morning, I was moving around and the physical therapist told me that he didn't need to see me because he was impressed with how I was moving around. Two years later, thanks to Dr. Cheney, I have almost gained back all of the sensation in both my hands and have total movement. He is the best.”
