Dr. Clyde Carpenter, MD
I welcome the opportunity to serve the Southwest Washington community. I have treated patients from all walks of life, including everyone from physicians to dock workers, from lawyers to loggers, from employed to unemployed, youth to the most elderly. I treat many conditions of the spine, with a particular emphasis on deformities, both minor and major. I have been in the same practice for 17 years and have been involved with scientific clinical research. I am also an inventor with a patent for a new, more anatomic artificial disk.

Dr. Carpenter was amazing. His bedside manner is wonderful and caring. After examining me, he knew exactly what was wrong and scheduled the surgery to fix my neck. I now would never know that I had an artificial disk put in my neck due to the fantastic job he did and the quick recovery. I am looking at having to have my L4/L5 fused soon and would not go to anyone else. I would recommend anyone going to him for their issues, he will help heal you with the state-of-the-art medical technology.

I just had my 16 week check up following a TLIF procedure. It is hard to believe just how much my life has changed for the better in that time. The day before my surgery, I could not walk more than a few feet without stopping, and was sleeping no more than 2-3 hours per night uninterrupted. A week after the surgery I was walking with no pain. Two weeks later I was walking 2 miles a day. I've since taken ten mile hikes and today was given the green light to leave the back brace at home.

Dr Carpenter diagnosed my problem as soon as he reviewed my MRI. He explained the procedure in a understandable manner. My outcome was great. I seldom even think about my back. I am 100 % pain free. I highly recommend him.
