I had been to several doctors about pain in my lower back, most I believe thought I was looking for pain pills. Dr. Grimm talked with me, told me what was causing the problem and what he could do to fix it, he gave me the confidence that he was the guy! I'm three weeks post l5 s1 fusion surgery and I feel great. if you need a spine doctor please take time to see Dr. Grimm I'm sure you will be very happy that you did. Jason Chapman

It took over six weeks to get an appointment, we arrived at the office at 10:44 AM for an 11:20 AM appointment and got to see Dr. Grimm at 2:45 PM (over 3 hours). Dr. Grimm appeared very knowledgeable in his field but I got the impression that he was too busy to listen to my explanation of my condition. All things considered, was satisfied with the visit but very disappointed with the excessive wait time.

Dr. Grimm operated on my 86 year old Dad's lumbar about three years ago after Dad began having problems with severe pain and falling. Three years later, Dad is doing great and exercising regularly. He reports absolutely zero pain or discomfort.Dr. Grimm was wonderful, personable, and best of all, highly skilled. He made a difference in our lives and we are grateful. His associates who would check in on dad in the hospital were also terrific. We ?? John Grimm.

I had herniated disc and a sliver broken off severely pinching my sciatic nerve. Dr Grimm seen me and scheduled my surgery 10 days after seeing him all other Drs just wanted to put me on pain meds he fixed the problem! I am very thankful to him. I was miserable for 5 months. The staff at st Mary's surgical staff took very good care of me. Thank you everybody!

I had scoliosis that was progressing. Dr. Grimm and Bethany, NP, straightened my spine and relieved me of my daily extreme pain by putting in rods and screws from T3 to my plevis, fixed bone spurs, ruptured discs and more. He is a very compassionate surgeon and in my opinion the greatest spine surgeon ever. I trust him completly with any spine need! I can walk because of his and his staff's awesome skills. You will have to wait on him but well worth his amazing skills as a surgeon.

About Me

Care Philosophy

"Helping people regain an active and pain-free lifestyle is of great importance to me. Please know that just because I am a spine surgeon, it does not mean that I always give a surgical recommendation. I always try to solve spinal problems with nonsurgical treatments first. Surgery is always the last resort."
