      I went to see Dr. Spicer for a 2nd opinion for possible back surgery. He LISTENED which was of great comfort considering the amount of discomfort I am in. He went over my MRI's with me explaining why this would be a difficult surgery and not very successful in relieving pain-and possibly getting worse. Although I was hoping for a "yes, let's do this surgery and everything will be great", I appreciated his truthfulness.

      I would Highly recommend Dr. Spicer as a result of my past experience. I have had a artificial disc replaced in my neck, C5 and C6, and have no problems what so ever. It's like nothing ever happened to my neck. I feel like I have a new lease on life. Kudu's to you Dr. Spicer.

      Dr. Spicer performed successful artificial cervical disc replacement surgery and a bilateral decompression surgery on my lower spine. Not only is he a highly skilled surgeon but he projects a genuinely friendly personality that immediately puts one at ease. His easy to understand explinations makes the entire surgical process nearly worry-free. His post-op follow up is handled equally as well. Through his expertise and kindness he has added additional happy years to my life.

      I just left Mark's office for my post op appointment and I am a happy man. I thought my condition was untreatable. I had difficulty walking, I had no feeling in my legs and was in a tremendous amount of pain. From the moment I walked into his office and met with him I knew I had stumbled upon an VERY SPECIAL doctor. He listened to my list of woes, looked at all my tests and told me that I was very fixable. And he was right! Thank you again Mark, for giving me my quality of life back.
      Dr. Spicer is a compassionate human in addition to being a highly skilled and phenomenal neurosurgeon.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
