The absolute best hernia related surgeon in the US. There is nobody better or more versed in the business of hernia related issues. He deserves 10 stars. He is an absolute master at his art and he saved my life. He is extremely personable and his staff is second to none.

I had a consult & am waiting to have surgery! He & his staff are absolutely the best ever! I'm an RN & I have never in my life met any DR that was as knowledgeable or as kind & compassionate as Dr Ramshaw & he is truly genuine! What a jewel! Brandie is just as nice too! I am so thankful that I was accepted as a patient! I have a difficult surgery ahead of me but he told me everything & he truly cares about his patients both mentally & physically & works hard to help them be prepared !

Dr Ramshaw and his patient care coordinator Brandy are the best medical team I have ever encountered. Dr Ramshaw is the best surgeon and and I am pain free thanks to his miraculous surgery. I am thankful for his expertise, and his professional "Patient Centered Approach to quality Medical Care". Keep up your work, and hopefully you will help bring in the next teams of excellent surgeons who understand the importance of listening to patients, and interacting with patients in a positive manner

My name is Connie Thornburg from Childersburg, Alabama. Dr. Ramshaw performed surgery on me on August 31, 2016. He removed old mesh , scaring & gave me a new abdominal wall reconstruction. I feel so blessed to have found him. He & his wife Brandi work so hard to see that everything was perfectly lined up to give me a great outcome. Dr. Ramshaw also used injections of Exparel a local analgesic in my surgical site. Little pain & a great recovery !! They're God sent worldwide to the hopeless !!

In 2013 I was having pain from hernia mesh that was implanted from previous hernia operations. He took time to explain what he could do and asked me which option I was interested in. he Removed the 5 pieces of mesh that had been implanted and I am doing better. He was and is willing to answer your questions and his patient representative is and was willing to provide assistance at anytime you needed it. I am very grateful to have been one of his patients and would recommend him to anyone.
Thank you, our team appreciates your support and kind words. Glad you are doing well. Dr. Ramshaw
