I met Dr. Bailey in the Roper ED when I was emergently admitted with a spinal abscess. That was 3 months ago. He is great at explaining what, why and how of treatment, showing you what is going on on the MRI. He was patient with my questions and concerns and answered them frankly.

I had been managed for 13 years with multi-level back pain. I was no longer getting relief so I went to see Dr. Bailey for second opinion. He viewed my images and said I was in a must have surgery condition. I am now 13 months out from a 2 level lumbar fusion, L4-L5, L5-S1. I am pain free with no pain medication. If I over do it, I can rest and be good by the next morning. Thank you Dr. Bailey I'm better than I've been in years. Wonderful to be pain free.
