If you need any surgery of the spine, look no further than Dr. Buttram! Mine was needed as a result of a hierniated disc in my L5. I had endured excruciating pain for 3 months before surgery. I'm SO glad I went through with the decision to operate. I can't speak enough high praise for him, his nurse PAM, disability coordinator Dorvetta, benefits coordinator Joy and Dr. Dan!!! Thank you for the excellent care, superior communication and instructions you sent home. They even stress, call anytime.

I highly recommend Dr Buttram. I never had any intentions of having spine fusion surgery, but the pain of a compressed sciatic nerve and scoliosis had left me with constant pain. It has been 11 weeks since back surgery, and I felt relief from the decompressed nerve immediately. I am so glad I decided to have the surgery. Dr. Buttram is very knowledgeable in his field of medicine, and I recommend him with confidence.

I had suffered in a lot of pain for 6 years from a herniated disc in my lower back. I could not work due to severe sciatica. I am so thankful I found Dr. Buttram. He is a kind, compassionate doctor who took the time to listen to my concerns. I had surgery this year and I am doing great. I am having no pain and I finally got my life back. Dr. Buttram's staff are wonderful. You can tell they really care about the patients there. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

If you have back issues, schedule an appointment with Dr. Buttram. Needed two surgeries this year to resolve all the issues but now completely pain free. Excellent care throughout the entire time. Highly recommend ...

Dr Buttram did a lower back decompression that immediately relieved the persistent pain and numbness in my legs just as he promised. He and his staff couldn't have been nicer, more professional or more helpful.

After I ruptured a disc in two places and landed in the ER at Rex, Dr. Buttram performed a laminectomy. He fully explained the situation pre- and post-op. I followed his post-op instructions to the letter and was virtually pain-free from the time I was released from the hospital. Dr. Buttram is an excellent neurosurgeon. He and his staff have excellent bedside manner and took the time to answer all of my many questions. I recommend Dr. Buttram in the most positive terms.
