Out of all doctors I have ever used he is the best. Very kind and patient not in hurry to brush you off he takes time to listen to you and explain what needs to be done. When he took me into surgery he was very reassuring and made me feel very comfortable

About 3 years ago Dr Hodges had to open up a bony area where it had pressed down onto the nerve. The first surgery by another doctor more than 20 years before was to remove a ruptured disk pressing on the nerve. Feb 2016 Dr Hodges had to go back in due to a piece of bone spur had broken off and went through the soft tissue and was pressing on the nerve causing leg weakness and pain down the side of my right leg.
