What People Say About Dr. Cully Cobb III, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Dr. Cobb performed back surgery on me in 1991. My pain was severe, going from bad to worse over 2 or 3 years. It got to the point that I could hardly walk. After a careful evaluation, Dr. Cobb performed the surgery which I believe took 3 or 4 hours. When I awoke in my room Dr. Cobb was there 5 minutes later explaining the procedure to my wife and I. Since then, for over 25 years, I have been free of back pain. My wife sometimes tells me she still says prayers in thanks to the Dr. So do I.

Dr. Cobb performed a right temporal lobectomy on me in july 2010 for epilepsy. I have been seizure free since the surgery and am completely off medication. I can now drive, I graduated college, and have an excellent job. Dr. Cobb gave me my life back. If I could give him a million stars, I would.

Dr. Cobb was recommended by my neurologist, Dr. Van Fossen, to perform a procedure high and INSIDE my spinal cord, where a cyst was damaging nerves serving my leg. Perfect, successful surgery. Cyst was drained and shunt put in and an MRI almost two years later showed the repair was still working well.... and still is several years later. He later operated on a low vertebrae to relieve right leg pain due to pressure on a major nerve serving my right leg. Again successful!
