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.

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.
