Dr. Stephens II' Care Philosophy

My patient care philosophy is to treat each patient as if he or she were a family member, and to use the full extent of my clinical training and experience to tailor a treatment program to each patient's unique clinical situation. I believe in conservative, compassionate care that utilizes surgery as a last resort. When appropriately indicated, I also offer my patients minimally invasive and motion-preserving surgical techniques."

    I am a 65 year old female who was convinced I'd try everything before submitting myself to back surgery. After trying all alternatives with little if any success, after 3 years of pain progressing to effectively bedridden; Dr Stephens was recommended to me. From the very beginning, he was cautious and wary. Eager to help me if he could. We went through every possible precaution including a second opinion that he requested. I awakened pain free in my back and leg from surgery. Thanks Dr. Stephens

    My personal experience with Dr, Stephens and his staff was a very great experience. Greeting with smiles from all staff involved. The thorough explanations of my conditions and letting me be a part of how we proceed with procedure meant he truly cared for me as a patient He was very pleasant all the time. If other conditions arise in his area of expertise, I will not hesitate to let him take care of me again. R/S Nicki Hickman

    I found myself trusting Dr. Stephens to perform 2 very complex surgeries from my 1st office visit. With each successive visit, my trust in him deepened. 6 weeks after those surgeries I'm into recovery and am extremely happy with Dr. Stephens and the results he achieved. He truly is, not only skilled, at what he does, but he obviously cares deeply about his patients. If I ever need any other orthopedic procedure, Dr. Stephens is the only choice I'll consider. He rates 5 stars out 5 in all

    Excellent doctor. Took his time explaining my diagnosis and treatment options. Reviewed my MRI with me and explained why surgery (cervical fusion) was a good option for me!
