Dr Huntsman is by far the best neck surgeon there is. He has done 2 surgeries on my neck and the results were fabulous. The last one he did for me was actually out patient. One of my best friends is a Orthopedic surgical nurse and she said that she would never let anyone but Dr Huntsman do surgery on her should she need it. I have seen friends who have had the same surgery as I had and their recovery was much much worse than mine. I will always recommend him!

Dr. Huntsman was very knowledgeable, friendly, outgoing, and thorough in his process. The surgery had no complications, and he was thorough on follow up information and what to look for and not do. I was referred to him by another doctor when conventional procedures didn't help my condition, so I didn't visit him very often, but my visits I did have wereexcellent

I'd heard many good things of Dr. Huntsman. I'm very happy with the results of my surgery. He was most thoughtful and concerned with my problem and getting it taken care of. I think he's pretty wonderful.
in Centerville, UT |
I have been operated on four times by Dr. Huntsman. He is an excellent surgeon. He is very knowledgeable, very concerned for the well being of his patients, and he is one of the best doctors that I have ever had.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Our experience with Dr. Huntsman was wonderful. He was great at keeping us informed and giving us all the options available. It was great to see the immediate elimination of pain and numbness after the surgery. I would, and frequently do, recommend him and his staff.

Was an awesome experience, was not judged or ridiculed

There would always be an appointment before surgery to go over the procedure and answer any questions. Before surgery Dr. Huntsman and everyone included in the surgery came to me and introduced themselves and let me know what they were doing in regards to the surgery. When I met Dr. Huntsman for the first time he saw my pain did x-rays, MRI to find out the exact problem and did the surgery two other doctors wouldn't. He's a hero!

My visit was very informative and rewarding.. He spent time explaining what my problems and suggested a way to try to help relieve some of my back pain. I appreciate his help. Kathleen and Abbey have been wonderful in seeing I got appointments right away and that i got my prescriptions as I needed them. Thanks to them all.
in Cottonwood Heights, UT |
Dr. Huntsman performed a one level spine fusion for me in 2010. It was a successful surgery. I had a second spine fusion above and below this site in 2016 and was also successful. I have been satisfied with his recommendations and would not hesitate to seek his advice on any future issues. I have recommended Dr. Huntsman to some of my aquaintences as well.
Salt Lake City, Utah |
At 17 years old dr huntsman found out I had fratures in my spine. He jumped right to back surgery. Yes I believe he did what he thought was best at the time and wanted me fixed quick but since then I have had 4 back surgeries. Him performing 2 of them. Since then my back has gotten worse and i have ran out of options. I know dr huntsman had helped many people but if you visit him and he suggests surgery. Make sure that is your last option. Epically at a young age.
in Green River, WY |
Dr. Huntsman was straight forward about my surgery. So thankful I was referred to him by one of his previous patients. I was in Casper, Wy for back surgery 2 years ago. Never pain free until after having the recommended surgery by Dr. Huntsman. He explained everything in detail before, during and after the surgery. We were shown a video of the procedure I was having, and shown XRAYS of before and after. We recommend Dr. Huntsman to family and friends! Very empathetic professional!
