      Dr. Little, the Barrow Brain & Spine, Dignity Health & all of the staff were the best. They all treated me with great compassion & were consummate professionals in their fields. Dr. Little was like no doctor I have every seen before. He was quite knowledgeable in my condition & answered all of my questions with no reservations. The neuro ICU nurses were dedicated to their care & compassion for me during recovery. I could not have wished for a better experience. I applaud Dr. Little & BNI.

      Gifted, and miracle worker with hands from God!
      in Phoenix, AZ |
      Dr. Little is a God sent gifted neurosurgeon. He had a difficult spine to perform a miracle. Pain was paralyzing truthfully. An 8+ hour surgery, 14 inch scar, 5 fusions, a cage and rod inserted, and 10 yrs of scar tissue removed, having lost 7 inches height, coping with massive doses of opiates, didn't trust doctors, given high dose of chemo toxin TAXOL, following successful surgery, picked an Oncologist,reputed as money hungry and inferior. Walking next morning,wo pain! A GREAT NEUROSUGERGEON!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
