Sanger, CA |
Dr. Brant and staff were terrific, he got rid of my back pain. Definitely recommend him!!
in Fresno, CA |
Working as a Firefighter, I received a spinal injury and was told by an occupational doctor that my career was over. Needing a second opinion I went to see Dr. Brant. I had tremendous nerve pain and spinal cord intrusion before Dr. Brant’s treatment. Dr. Brant relieved me of ALL pain all the while securing my spine reducing further damage to my spinal cord. I would certainly recommend Dr. Brant to individuals with spinal and nerve problems. He saved my career!!! Thank You Dr. Brant

Dr. Brant is pleasant but not overly friendly; he's professional and focused so be sure to write down your questions before your appointment and have someone with you to jot down answers. He is concerned but not overly sympathetic. He is kind but direct; he is quick and to the point but not rushed. He is very certain about what surgical approaches are the best and won't do any of the "latest/newest, least invasive" procedures.

I am a 68 yr. old women who has had various surgeries with various outcomes. By far Dr. Brant was the BEST SURGEON I'VE EVER HAD......All and more questions were answered, and he and his assistant were available to me throughout the process!! His staff is exemplary!!!!! I have and will recommend him to my family and friends!!!!!!!!
in Tollhouse, CA |
Dr Brant via a flexible x-ray was able to pinpoint my problem at L4-L5. The surgery went smoothly and I was released on the 4th day (Thanksgiving). Everything he said would happen, happened. I am now 14 weeks post-op with no pain. I only have the muscles in my back to strengthen. I suffered with nerve pain and numbness for 11 years. I feel like a new man!

Dr. Brant is the real deal. I was required to have surgery immediately due to a rapid deterioration in my case, 3 level acdf. Dr. Brant answered all of my questions and delivered exactly what he said that he would. I had quite a bit of concern about letting a local surgeon operate near my spinal cord, but Dr. Brant did a fantastic job. Dr. Brant's staff was friendly, expeditious and helpful. I have recommended Dr. Brant to a close family member and friends.

Recently I had my 2nd major surgery with Dr. Brant. He provided great skill and care. His staff is also very patient and understanding. I am still in recovery mode and have more follow up appointments which I expect will go smoothly.

If you are looking for a caring, highly skilled neurosurgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Brant. I had neck surgery in Sept 2016 and am extremely happy with my results. So thankful I was referred to him by my pain management physician.
in Fresno, CA |
I had vertebrae C4,5,&6 fused together. Dr. Brandt's staff was very polite and professional, wait times were short. I was amazed of how little pain I had after the surgery, and was surprised how fast my recover was. Hospital staff was equally friendly and professional. Dr. Brandt explained the surgery in detail and removed any fears or doubts. My scar is so tiny and thin you don't any see it! I would gladly recommend Dr. Brandt.
in Prather, CA |
Consistently voted Fresno's #1 Neurological Surgeon, and it is easy to understand why. Outstanding surgical skill, excellent results, and right-on diagnostic abilities. Makes you feel very confident and comfortable.
in Clovis, CA |
Dr Brant has always been very professional with me. He takes time to answer all my questions without seeming rushed. He viewed my MRI and XRays with me in person, explaining everything. My surgery went very well too, and ever since waking up in the recovery room, I've not had any further neck/back pain. I have already recommended him to several people, including my husband.

I always felt comfortable and well informed. His staff is just as kind and thorough! My surgery went well and my check-ups have been quick yet thorough! He has a kind smile and is very compassionate! Thanks, Dr Brant for giving me my life back!
in Fresno, CA |
His bedside manner was great. He is calm and comforting, lets you ask questions and answers in language you can understand. Surgery went well and I am pleased with my outcome I had to have cervical spine and lumbar spine surgery am less than a week out from surgery And do not have the excruciating pain I had before surgery I would definitely refer others to him...
in Fresno, CA |
Dr. Brant is the best at what he does! I highly recommend him.
in Fresno, CA |
when was referral to dr. Brant by my primary doctor. I was not getting any help with the lower back pain that been hurt me for a year. when they saw the MRI and X_RAY they knew what needed to be done. I'm in recovery but the pain that been hurting me is gone!Just need to do what the Doctor say for a health recovery.

DO NOT RECOMMEND, failed to look at MRI, didntt know why I was there, left room, came back in room said I needed surgery still failed to review MRI, said to call and schedule an appointment. 2nd appointment refused to look at MRI, totally unprofessional- I walked out. BEWARE- IF YOU NEED SURGERY DO NOT SETTLE FOR A DOCTOR WHO WILL NOT REVIEW YOUR MRI WITH YOU and RECOMMENDS SURGERY! ITS YOUR BODY and physical health at risk. FYI got 2nd opinion, new PCP and almost a year later FEEL GREAT!

I had spinal fusion surgery by Dr. Brant in 2008. I was able to resume running, backpacking, and skiing with 1 year after surgery. My outcome was optimal.
in Fresno, CA |
The lumbar disc replacement procedure was a complete success. I am back to pain free walking the golf course after several years suffering of sciatica in my right leg. I recommend him all over town.
in Fowler, California |
Best physician and amazingly talented neurosurgeon I have ever had the privilege to be his patient. Dr Brant diagnosed and surgically corrected the issues with my neck which were missed over and over by other surgeons. My advice, start with Dr Brant and your search for correcting whatever issue you have will be remedied.
in Clovis, CA |
I injured my neck during the summer of 2015 and was referred to Dr. Brant. He has a blessing since our first office visit. Dr. Brant is professional, competent & very knowledgeable in his field and he has a way of easing his patients nerves. When the doctor told me surgery was the only option, I believed & trusted his opinion. I'm no longer in pain & regaining my strength! The entire staff in Dr. Brant's office was helpful, kind, reassuring and competent in their jobs & I highly recommend them.
in Clovis, Ca |
My experience with Dr. Brant was great. My condition was severe and although I was not experiencing pain, he saw the urgency in the situation and rearranged his schedule to perform the surgery. I followed his post surgery instructions and have had zero pain or complications. 27 months post surgery and I have trained for and completed 4 half marathons and 1 full marathon. Dr. Brant and his staff are excellent and I recommend them to all my friends and family who may need surgery.
in Fresno, CA |
My 2nd visit was w/Dr. Brant. He explained the spinal fusion and what to expect. He sent me for another MRI, & for a Med Clearance from my primary doc. He sent me for an xray of my neck for the airway passage during surgery. He went on vacation, & I had to wait 6 wks. My son was w/me. Dr. Brant didn't seem to know my history and said he could not help me. We were shocked. No explanation. Total opposite. Only reason given was that my leg wasn't hurting, but it didn't hurt at prev visit.
in Fresno California |
Dr. Brant is very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. He made me feel at ease from the very beginning, including after surgery. I feel that the trust he ensures in me, as his patient, made me feel comfortable and at ease. I'm glad my primary referred me to Dr. Brant. I wouldn't have it any other way. Dr. Brant changed my quality of life with my surgery. I'm no longer in pain, I noticed the difference immediately and I am recovering well. He truly is a blessing.
in Merced, CA |
I have had back issues for many years and been to several doctors up and down the valley. After meeting with Dr. Brant, I knew I had come to the right place. Dr. Brant and the entire staff was courteous, professional, thorough, helpful, and genuinely concerned at every level. A great doctor supported by a competent and capable staff. I highly recommend them.
