Medford, OR |
I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for a very long time and had tried many different ways to get relief, accupucture, chiropractic care, physical therapy and prednisone injections getting only minimal relief. When I went to Dr. Walker he was able to determine the cause of the pain (spine issues) and gave me a very thorough explanation of what spine surgery would involve. There was no pressure to have the surgery and the timing was left to me. I am now 3 months post-op the pain is gone

I can't believe Dr. Walker has anything but a 4 or 5 rating. His personality might not be super cuddly but his skill is the best there is. He saved my life from staph in my spine growing into the brain. He said I oozed more pus than any patient he ever had. After that I still needed fusion. He did a 5 level ACDF. I never had any pain. My strength in my hand is coming back. The numbness in my forearms and hands are going away (slowly as is normal).

Dr. Walker did a great job with my neck. After an auto accident I had 4 pinched bi-lateral nerves at C-3 and C-4. Dr Walker removed areas of bone around these nerves, which in turn relieved the pain in the neck as well as the pain that was shooting down my arms. The procedure went very well. Compared to the way my neck was before the surgery, it was a complete success. Before I couldn't turn my head left or right, up or down. Today (6 years later) things are near normal.
