Care Philosophy

I believe every patient deserves the best possible outcome. That's why I obtained the highest possible training for my specialty, going over and beyond what is required of a general orthopaedist. Our staff also goes the extra mile so that you spend more time with me, and less time waiting for me. This allows me to customize a treatment plan that fits the way you want to live, work and play. The best medicine is practiced when doctor and patient connect with each other in a meaningful way.

Greenwood, IN |
Don't waste your time if you have a condition that requires more than a simple shot or requires him to to actually look for what is causing the problem. After one visit with him, I was told (by phone) to seek a second opinion. I wasted nearly 3 months being off of work just to be told that I have carpal tunnel. I went to see a real spine surgeon who diagnosed me instantly and correctly and I am now 2 weeks away from having surgery to repair what is damaged in my neck.

Amazing doctor! Very happy with every step of my surgery process from the preparation, day of, and weeks/months after. Dr. Poulter and his team took great care of me. I would recommend to anyone in need of a spinal fusion surgeon.

Dr Poulter has operated on me twice now and could be happier. His bedside is just as good as his surgical abilities as I'm back at work being a Firefighter?paramedic when I was told by other Doctors I would never be able to do my job again. Thank you
