I recommend Dr Highsmith, he is an excellent neuro surgeon, he cares and I trust him.

I was blessed to have found Dr. Highsmith. I have had multiple spinal/neck surgeries/procedures from an injury back in 1987. I have been in pain management full time for 19 years; therefore I know when something does not feel right. After getting discouraged here in Columbia, I decided to seek a second opinion. My plan was to try the spinal cord implant again; however, Dr. Highsmith immediately found my problem...and I had LLift surgery on 9/30 ! Thank God I found someone who listened !!!!

My 1st appt was great he looked over my records all weekend and was going to go in through my side for my back pain. Then my ins denied the surgery, so I got new ins make another appr take 45 mins to see him they close at 4 he saw me at 4:45 look at my records again for maybe 3 mins and decided he couldn't go through my side something about my arota being to far back. I have seen 3 doctors and he is the only one that saw that. I think he just didn't want to be bothered I was out in 5 mins. RUDE!
