      Dr. Wright says

       Neurosurgeons tend to be extremely meticulous, conscientious, and passionate about their work. Many seek certification by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons, which is a governing body composed of prominent neurosurgeons around the country, and oversees and assures that the quality and integrity of neurosurgical care is maintained.

      in Wasilla, AK |
      Dr Wright has done necessary surgery on me twice. I first had debilitating neck, head , And arms. Since that neck surgery in 2008- I have not had a single headache. Recently, I woke up with severe pain and weakness in my leg, an urgent MRI showed a slipped disc that could have left my leg useless without DR Wrights surgery. I highly recommend him. I am also a health care professional.
