    My first surgery that Dr. Brown did was a complicated lumbar fusion. I recovered in record time following his instructions. During my one year follow-up I told him of problems I was having with arm pain and hand numbness. He ordered a MRI and told me I had some narrowing disc spaces but conservatively didn't recommend surgery. He said to keep him informed. Months later it was worse and Dr. Brown performed ACDF. Six weeks post-op and doing great. He's the best as is his staff.

    I recommend Dr Brown to everyone I know who is having neck and back problems. He did an excellent job in performing extremely complicated surgery on my husband and was straightforward, insightful and responsive from pre-surgery to post-surgery.

    Dr Brown performed surgery for spondylolisthesis on me. He explained the condition clearly. At the 3-1/2 month post-surgery, my pre-surgery pain in my legs is gone. There is very little pain in my back. During and after exercising, I do have to take painkillers, but this is to be expected. I'm very glad I chose Dr Brown to help me.

    Dr. Brown is very straight forward on your condition, what can be done to help you, and explains exactly what will occur during treatment. There were no surprises. Follow-up care is precise and scheduled for your needs.
