I had inguinal hernia repair by Dr Johnson thinking it would fix my chronic testical pain. I went back to see Dr Johnson after my surgery due to more pain then before the surgery. As someone prior has already stated, I was told that it happens and that I needed to seek out a pain specialist. Now after thousands of dollars in debt for pain and nerve blocks I finally get a Dr to do a simple ultrasound of my testicles and guess what???? I have a inguinal hernia still on the side that was supposedly repaired. Something I always knew but Dr Johnson only checked by turn and cough method which I knew he would say that the surgery mesh was doing its job and the nerve could just be irratated. If he would of done ulra sound it would have showed his repair didn't work. Now I'm stuck with another surgery to fix his mistake and more medical bills. Evidently pain specialist see alot of his hernia patients. Super nice person but definitely quick to defer you to another doctor. Research your hernia D

Dr Johnson is a remarkably friendly and competent surgeon. I have known him since his residency at MUSC and he has conducted three surgeries on me, all with excellent results and rapid healing. He has always been prompt and efficient with his time, his staff is friendly, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

I give Dr. Johnson a huge recommendation for anyone in search of an awesome surgeon. I visited the Emergency Room on a Tuesday morning after an MRI I was informed I would be needing emergency surgery. Dr.Johnson was on call and what a wonderful bedside manner he has. He explained all about the procudure, in terms I could understand. I spoke 2 more times before - I felt more relaxed once I went into surgery. He visit 3 times with me before being dischard. Thank you, Dr Johnson you're awesome!

Dr. Johnson and his staff at Carolinas Center for Surgery are the best!!! He is so compassionate and he took his time explaining all the details about my surgery to me and my family. I never have to wait long when I come in for my followup appointments. I wish I could have him as my primary care doctor. Thank you so much Dr. Johnson! You are literally a lifesaver!!!

Dr. John 'Ted' Johnson is a confident surgeon. He is willing to answer any questions pertaining to surgical procedures. I was very comfortable discussing my surgical procedure & I quickly developed a trust in his abilities. I am a 63 yr old male. I have recently undergone an Open Ventral Hernia Repair/Bilateral Laparoscopic (TEP) Inguinal Hernia Repair at the Surgical Center of Morehead City, NC performed by Dr. Johnson.
