Dr. Wingo's Care Philosophy

We take the time to really listen to our patients and explain all their treatment options. Our patients are aware they are receiving the benefits of my years of experience, as well as my knowledge of the newest innovations in spinal technology. We work closely with providers of physical therapy, chiropratic, exercise/fitness, massage and pain management. We recommend surgery only when all non-operative treatment has failed to resolve the problem. We advocate a post operative rehabilitation with graduation to full body fitness for every surgical patient.

    Dr Wingo and the we're extremely patient and kind. I am grateful that he was there for me. I highly recommend their services.
    in Fort Walton Beach, FL |
    I am 3 months post-op from a L4-L5-S1 fusion. I feel great. No more shooting pain switching to numbness down both legs. I was back on my Harley within no time. My wife had Dr. Wingo fuse L4-L5 five months before my surgery and she works in her garden, mows with a push mower and works under the hood of her car. Dr. Wingo was amazing from hello to goodbye. I brag on him every time I tell someone I had back surgery. His staff jumped through hoops because I am disabled veteran. They will for you.

    I have repeatedly recommended Dr. Wingo to anyone who has issues with their back for multiple reasons. Not the least of which, is the fact that when my L4 decided to do some traveling, the doc recommended a time heal without rushing to surgery. This drew my respect first. When it finally came down to my body refusing to cooperate, we agreed to the necessary fusion. He did a great job! It's been since October 6, 2015 since my surgery and I'm moving better than I have in years!

    Dr. Wingo has treated me in the past with great success. I needed another surgery and came from Michigan to have Dr.Wingo treat me. I will not have anyone else treat my spine condition. Dr. Wingo explains everything so that a non medical person understands. Very caring doctor.I highly recommend Dr.Wingo to anyone who is suffering with back pain.??

    Dr. Wingo has done surgery on my husband's back several times. He won't let any other doctor touch it. Dr. Wingo is professional and very personable. His work has been stellar.

    I would recommend Dr. Wingo Highly. He operated on my back 7 months ago and I no longer have pain. He has good bedside manner and I felt that I was in good hands under his care. Thank you Dr. Wingo! Peggy Herbig
