Dr Grant is an amazing surgeon and wonderful doctor. I have seen him before he moved to this location and would recommend him to anyone who needs to see a spine specialist. I had ADR at C5/C6 and C6/C7 and since having these done I am back to living my life and able to enjoy all the things I used to prior to my injury.

Dr. J. Grant saved my life. I had a serious infection in my back. He operated on me twice. Second surgery was 13 hours which 2 titanium rods were placed along with 16 screws. He is a wonderful physician & surgeon. As a retired nurse I have seen many physicians & his intelligence and knowledge saved my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I feel like his leaving will be a loss to this community. His PA Chris Hydock is intelligent, knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher. This is a great team & I thank both of them .

My spinal MRI results and options were clearly explained, my questions were answered leaving me with a high comfort level that Dr Grant and his organization, were professionals of high quality. Years of pinched nerve paid were relieved by Dr Grant’s L4-L5 and L5-S1 surgery late January 2019. I’m enjoying an active life thanks to Dr Grant.

Dr. Grant performed a L4/L5 fusion in 1996 and I am still going strong twenty-three years later. Everyday I think about how luck I was that I selected Dr. Grant as my surgeon.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Grant and his staff. He did a C6-C7 disc replacement and I feel like a million bucks. Also to his assistant Chris 2 Thumbs Up. Thank you both very much.

Nearly three years have passed since Dr. Grant gave me a nearly new back by replacing discs from T10 to L5. Other doctors had told me that there was nothing that could be done to help me. Thanks to Dr. Grant I am upright and happy to be active without that horrible pain I was suffering. Forever grateful, Gail Hoffman

Dr. Grant has a very positive manor with his patients. He describes very clearly what needs to be done. He pays close attention to other potential concerns outside his area of expertise. He always has a very positive attitude. His PA is a great young man as well - always making the patient feel relaxed and comfortable.

Dr. Grant had immediate understanding of my back problem and recommended surgery ASAP based on the degeneration of nerves in my leg and foot. It became evident to me weeks later, as I mended, how close I had been to permanent nerve damage.
