Dr. Hadley is one of the compassionate and knowledgeable surgeons I have ever met personally and professionally. He is thorough with explaining the condition and possibilities for treatment. His office and bedside manner are exceptional, making the patient and family member feel important and cared about. Dr. Hadley gave my husband his strength, self-esteem, and quality of life back by doing a cervical spine fusion revision. What a blessing he is in his field and our area!

The VERY BEST OF THE BEST!!! Before seeing Dr. Hadley I had 3 other opinions from highly recommended doctors, 2 of which refused to touch me. Dr. Hadley gave me hope! At 45 years old I was scared to death that I would never have a normal life again with all my back pain. I had been to pain clinics and therapy, you name it. Nothing helped. Dr. Hadley did my surgery and within a month I could actually wake up in the morning without pain. There are doctors out there that are good doctors, but with Dr. H you can tell God blessed him with a gift. And I thank God for leading me to him! Any patients of his can feel free to reach out to me personally with any questions! 205-602-3543 I love you Dr. Hadley! Thank you not only for giving me life again and but for actually being there every step of the way !

Dr. Hadley did a cervical spinal fusion on me. I had talked to several other doctors about this procedure and was quite nervous about it. But once I got to see Dr. Hadley and did my research on his work, I then felt confident about the operation which I think helps in recovery. He and all his staff do excellent work and you know they know what they are doing. They all were very caring and very professional.

Dr Hadley has performed surgery on me twice and each was a complete success. The first was a double laminectomy and spine stabilization in the lower back. The second was a fusion of three neck vertebrae. I was in constant and sever pain on both. Now I’m pain free. I would give Dr Hadley 10 stars if I could.

I've been under Dr. Hadley's care for about 3.5 years. He recently performed a laminectomy on 3 of my vertebrae because of a spinal cord tumor. I am grateful to Dr. Hadley! He is the best!

Dr. Mark Hadley is a miracle worker. I had a spinal fusion surgery from another Dr on Feb 20, 2020, that failed miserably and put me in a wheelchair. Dr. Hadley performed what can only be described as a miracle and fused S-1 through L-4 vertebrae. He is the top 1% of all neurosurgeons in America. I thank God for Dr. Hadley every day because he allowed me to stand and walk again. There is no better doctor than Dr. Hadley.

I found out I had a meningioma on my spinal cord taking up 80% of my spinal canal that could paralyze me any day. I was told it was inoperable and a very rare case. I quickly was scheduled appointments to see doctors willing to work on me. A doctor at John Hopkins told me I would at the least be paralyzed and possibly not even make it through the surgery. Meetings with various surgeons left me uneasy and terrified. I then came to found Dr. Mark Hadley. I endured an 8 hour surgery removing the tumor and replacing my cervical spine. I woke up to realize I was paralyzed on my whole right side and had nerve damage on the left side that hinders my ability to feel pressure, pain, or temperature. Dr. Hadley checked on me every single day. His church prayed for me on Sunday& he called me after. 10 years later I recently saw Dr. Hadley and I left there with perspective. Looking at me now you would never know I had a surgery! Forever grateful to be here and forever thankful for Dr. Mark Hadley.

I am a disabled veteran and was in the early stages of becoming paralyzed when I was referred to Dr. Mark Hadley. He successfully and skillfully performed my surgery, a dorsal cervical 3-4, 4-5, 5-6 and 6-7 laminectomy with cervical 2 – thoracic 2 internal fixation and fusion. The results were amazing. Prior to this operation I was really wheelchair bound and now I am able to stand straighter and use a walker for short periods. My excruciating back pain has been relieved and this has only been a few months since the operation. I hope to get even better with my continued OT and PT. I would highly recommend Dr. Hadley. He is an excellent surgeon and he really cares about his patients. After the surgery he was there to check on my daily progress and to answer any questions I might have. I also cannot say enough about his PA, David Aldrich. He was extremely hardworking, caring and compassionate. He came in every single day to check on me and make sure I was healing well.

Its not hard for me to say how happy and relieved of pain I am after being referred to Dr. Hadley and his staff. I had surgery on May 9th and within 29 days I was back on the golf course after he corrected my problem in the cervical area. He and his staff, all of them, are "top notched". They are very very professional, courteous, & kind. They were also very willing to listen to my list of questions. It was also comforting to know that Dr. Hadley believes that the Lord looks over him and guides him as he performs these delicate surgeries. From the bottom of my heart, I owe Dr. Mark Hadley and his staff a huge THANK YOU for what they did to get rid of my neck pain. Thank YOU Dr. Mark.
