Patient Comments (18)
in Ragland, AL |
He is amazing . I had a awful break of my collar bone. A plate and 2 screws. Once into surgery he relized the break was worse than he thought so I he went the extra mile and wired my bone together and put a longer plate in with 12 screws. He had me back a work in 2 weeks. That was almost a year ago and I feel amazing. He’s a busy man but he’s the best!!!!!
in Ozark, AL |
I have very pleased with the results of my total knee replacement done by Dr Bramlett. The minimally invasive procedure is much better and easier to recover from than the traditional knee replacement that most people have done I could have had my surgery done closer to my home in Ozark but I am so thankful I chose Dr Bramlett and Brookwood hospital in Birmingham.Dr Bramlett is honest concise and a very skilled surgeon I have already referred and will continue to recommend Dr Bramlett
in Enterprise, AL |
Thanks Dr Bramlett and staff for taking the best care of me with my total knee replacement..From the first phone call to set up consult to the surgery and follow up I have received excellent care. The folks at Brookwood Hospital did a good job too. They took good care of my wife and I. The results have been great as I was walking without a walker or cane after 3 days..My pain has been managed with Advil since day three. My full range of movement is back. I've already recommended you twice.
in Tuscaloosa, AL |
Thank you, Dr. Bramlett, for the attention to detail and the care you gave during and ollowing my total right hip replacement surgery. I appreciate your frankness and listening to the patient. Love your artwork in your office and hospital. I have already recommended you to family and friends.
in Montgomery, AL |
I researched and chose this specialist based on reviews on the internet which incidentally included fb friends I also knew personally and professionally. They not only used this MD themselves but also several of their family members. All referrals were based on the unusually high skill of this surgeon as well as the attention to detail by him and his office staff. I couldn't be more pleased with the care, the surgical skill, and the integrity of this Dr. and his staff. Excellent choice!
in Talladega, AL |
Dr. Bramlett performed a total knee replacement during the first week of June 2017. I am a deacon at the First Baptist Church in Stemley at which I teach the youth Sunday school, so I am quite active on my feet. Two weeks following surgery, I was off all of my pain pills, had full range of motion, and returned to normal daily activities such as cutting my grass and teaching Sunday school again. I was truly impressed with Dr. Bramlett. He is a brilliant surgeon and a world-class doctor to me.
in Mulga, AL |
I have been seeing Dr. Bramlett for years. He did a knee arthroscope, a shoulder surgery, and my next will be two knee replacements. I've never had a problem with anything and once you get to know him, he even has a sense of humor. I would recommend him to anyone and I wouldn't use anyone else, although I did have an accident and was taken to UAB and had to have two knee surgeries. Dr. B said they did an excellent job. I do know about the long waits though. Don't know what that is about.
Alabaster, Al |
Dr. Bramlett was wonderful! I had a knee arthroscopy that went great and then 2 weeks later he was able to get me in for shoulder surgery. Which also went very well. It has been a very pleasant experience. He is very thorough and knows orthopedics. I would recommend him to anyone who needs any kind of orthopedic surgery.
in McCalla, Alabama |
He is the best orthopedic surgeon in Alabama. He fixed my mother's botched hip from 3 previous doctor's mistakes. She never had anymore problems after he did the surgery. We as a family will only see Dr Bramlett.
in Northport, AL |
I cannot say enough about Dr. Bramlett and his staff. He preformed a total right knee replacement in early May 2017. My left knee was replaced 7 years ago. The comparison between the two is incredible. I used a walker 5 days and graduated to a cane. I only used the cane for 3 days as i was no longer in need of any assistance walking. Only 7 weeks have passed and I am 100% recovered. Dr. Bramlett's technique is truly remarkable and I would recommend him to anyone considering knee replacment.
in Selma,Alabama |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Bramlett. He is thorough, highly skilled and well educated being board certified. The last 2 visits in the office have been lengthy. However, I would chose excellent care over a wait time any day.
in Valley Grande, AL |
Dr Bramlett did my shoulder surgery about 3 years ago and after the intense pain of the surgery, (when people say shoulder surgery hurts like hell, believe it!) I am back to playing racquetball and hitting as good as ever..... Now comes the knee issue..... Hope I have as good of luck with my knee as I did with my shoulder, less the pain..... ??????
in McIntosh Alabama |
Thank you Dr Bramlett!!!! My 82 year old mom is walking free style without the need of walking cane. She been using a cane for the past 18 months and was in constant pain. Surgery took 20 min she had surgery on 3/15/17 and went home 3/17/17. No need for nursing home. Again she is 82 no one Mobile Al does mis surgery. It was worth the 4 hr trip to Birmingham. Thank God and thank you. From The Moore family . Church members say it's a miracle cuz they knew her condition before Dr Bramlett

If you're looking for someone who can fix your orthopedic problems AND you're willing to do your part, Dr. Bramlett is your man.
in Birmigham Al |
Dr. Bramlett is a top surgeon. You can be sure of quality care and treatment. Unfortunately the patient's time is not considered a priority. Expect to wait and wait. The receptionist staff seems to have an attitude and seem to be annoyed by having to interact with patients
Birmingham, AL |
The best i can do is to approve a raise for the entire staff and double ann's salary with increassibg John, s by at least half. And for the ace doc i will be happy to prescribe two glasses of red wine nightly and decree he never has to remember any of the stupid 70000 new numbers from medicare' worthless bureaucracy George hudson smith
in Hoover, AL |
I have the utmost faith in Dr Bramlett's knowledge and no how.
in Birmingham, AL |
Placed a prosthesis in my Lt hip that warnings had been sent to Dr Bramblett. He refused to tell my wife what prosthesis he used. I went to see him about 6 months later, with complaints of hip pain. He said it was scar tissue. I returned to his office & saw his partner who said I had bursitis. I asked both MD what prosthesis I had. Neither would tell me!
