What People Say About Dr. Mark Hambly, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Hambly is a superbly talented and experienced surgeon. My wife had a very large cyst pressing against her spine causing significant pain, numbness, and loss of feeling. It was an urgent problem. Annette, his assistant, immediately got us in for a consultation, while also reserving a potential surgery slot. We are grateful for how quickly she responded. Less than a week after our appointment Dr. Hambly removed the entire cyst, which turned out to be quite complex. The very next day my wife had regained all the feeling in her leg, and could walk normally again. She is 100% recovered now. Amazing really. We don't understand the few negative reviews we have seen here. Dr. Hambly is very direct, honest and confident because he knows what he's doing. You don't trust your life to a surgeon because they are good salesmen. You trust your life because they know how to fix your problem. Dr. Hambly is one of the best surgeons you'll ever find.

Required a spinal decompression laminectomy Dr. Hambly is knowledgeable and a great communicator. Pre op and Post op went exactly as explained and expected. My results are excellent. Lower spine and leg pain has disappeared. Eight weeks post op I can stand and walk without pain...look out golf buddies here I come.

I was referred to Dr. Hambly for possible surgery for spinal stenosis. This is a condition I've dealt with for many years which in the last year became progressively worse. I had avoided surgery up until now for fear that my condition might become worse afterwards. During my first visit Dr. Hambly explained my condition thoroughly pointing out the problems shown by the MRI. His demeanor, care and concern not to mention his professionalism made me feel better about taking this step forward. It was not easy but I felt confidence and trust in what Dr. Hambly was recommending. This is the best decision I have made in a very long time. The surgery was serious but was actually much easier than I had imagined. It took 3.5 hours and I stayed in the hospital 2 nights. That was 2 weeks ago. I am now walking 1.5 miles and feel great. I wish I had done this years ago. Dr. Hambly did an excellent job and is my hero. If you are in the Sacramento area and need back surgery go see Dr. Hambly.

Dr Hambly saved my career! I’m a professional firefighter for the city of Sacramento and the doc gave me my life back. I can’t say enough good things about him. If you need back surgery he’s your only choice.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hambly for back surgery. He was good at explaining the procedure and what to expect following the surgery. He is efficient and listens to the patient.

I had injured my back and had been limping and in pain for over 8 months, after Dr. Hambly performed surgery not only was I out that same day but I was walking straight and without pain. I am so grateful to Dr. Hambly.

I was referred to Dr. Hambly for a lower back issue. From the very beginning he was very clear and explained what my options were. In my opinion the surgery was a complete success and the pain running down my leg is gone for the first time in five years. I am even playing golf again. I would strongly recommend Dr. Hambly to anyone. He and his staff were very professional and on time. The most time I spent in the waiting room was ten minutes. I could not have asked for a better doctor!
