Dr. Vaught and his staff were very professsional, caring and informative. They answered all questions and concerns about the procedures that they preformed.

I was in a wreck 16 years ago and there was nothing perfected at that time to fix my back. In 2017 I saw Dr Vaught and had a consultation and we discussed a new SI Joint Fusion procedure. The results are beyond belief! My pain is gone and I can walk with ease. Him and his staff were nice and listened to my concerns. THANK YOU DR VAUGHT AND STAFF
