Dr Hood preformed a spinal fusion on my 2 thru 4 vertebra after I had tried every other type of treatments for about 3 years and many $$$$$$$. I had therpy, injections , muscle stimulation ,and all to no avail. 1 , three hour operation and 6 weeks of phycial therapy and no more pain was very well worth it !!!! Wish I would of done the operation 1st Thank You Dr Hood , job well done !!!!!!

I found Dr. Hood to be an extremely competent spinal surgeon.

Dr. Hood fixed my back!! I had a slipped vertebrae and spinal stenosis and could only walk about 50-100 yards until I started having severe pain. He did a great job and all my pain is gone. I can walk as far as I like now.

Dr. Hood is one the best orthopedic spine surgeons in Tucson. He has helped me when no one else would. I was out of work for 5 years. Now, I'm back to work full time with no limitations. His staff is friendly and he is superb. My family thanks you, and I thank you.

Staff rude, unhelpful and uninterested in helping patients. My wife suffered a broken neck and was referred by UMC for a follow up appointment with Dr. Hood. Only the day before the appointment did it emerge that they wouldn't work with our insurance, leaving my wife without the follow up care she needed. Wouldn't tell us how much the appointment would cost until after the appointment. Wouldn't help to find another doctor. Don't understand patients are customers.
