I can’t say enough about Dr. Wilson he gave me a second chance at life. I had lower lumbar fusion L4, L5, and S1. I didn’t want to have surgery because I was so afraid of what could go wrong but I knew I could not have a life with that level of pain. Dr. Wilson talked me through every step of the procedure and he showed me my CT scan and explained it so I could understand what happened to my body and why He recommended I have the surgery. My life is so much better now. Thank you Dr. Wilson.

5 minute apt. Never went over mri results with me. Said go to physical therapy for 6 weeks 3 times a week and steroids up my spine if that does not work then come back. 2nd opinion, urgent surgery needed as it was not even the correct nerve Dr Wilson had suggested and waiting would have caused further damage that may have been irreversible. I have seen so many doctor through the years and have played this insurance game so many times. Before cortisone shots read what the FDA says .

In April of 2016, Dr. Wilson performed a total lumbar fusion of my spine. Because I had had two previous lumbar fusions (two vertebrae each of 2004 and 2006) by a surgeon not affiliated with Western Neuro, he had to contend with a lot of scar tissue, which complicated the surgery. However, Dr. Wilson, by his surgical expertise, was able to overcome the difficulties that presented, resulting in a 100% successful surgery and recovery. I now have no lower back pain. I highly recommend Dr. Wilson.

Dr. Wilson has been extremely patient, thorough and helpful. My sister needs a second brain surgery and we have been anxiously evaluating the possibility of moving to the mayo clinic because of their in'surgery MRI. Dr. Wilson proactively initiated all the paperwork despite it being New Year's day. He has followed up with us to explain all aspects and address all our concerns. He has calmed our fears with his kind and clear explanations. Absolutely recommend him-he honestly cares for his patient

My husband and I visited Dr Wilson for some nerve and neck issues. I was impressed with his knowledge and his listen, he puts you at ease and you can see the compassion and care he takes with his patience. Dr Wilson made recommendations to a pain center for injections. His front staff was very helpful with contacts and insured paperwork was forwarded so we would not experience any delays. Extended thanks to Patty for all her support and help.

Dr. Wilson is very professional, listened to my concerns, respected my decisions, explained my MRI results (lumbar stenosis), and performed my surgery (bilateral L4-L5 hemi-laminectomy). Dr. Wilson and his medical team were great with follow-up. I was glad that he talked to my friend (my surgery coach) after my surgery before I got out of post-op. I am really grateful to him and his medical team. I feel very confident in Dr. Wilson. AND, my back and leg pain is GONE!!!!

Dr. Wilson did my Fusion about 6 months ago. I can not say enough great things about him. First of all, my back is doing remarkably well. You can tell Dr. Wilson generally cares about his patients, and leaves no questions unanswered. He is a professional and he can be trusted with any neurosurgical needs. I highly recommend him.

The orthopedic surgeon who replaced my knee told me there was only on neurosurgeon in Tuscon he would allow to do surgery on his back - Dr Matthew Wilson. On August 13, 2015 Dr Wilson fused vertebrae in my back. Dr Wilson made a major surgery a breeze. He is dead honest, which I appreciate. His bedside manner is delightful. I love his sense of humor. Dr Wilson is indeed the only surgeon I would allow to do surgery on my back. He is terrific!
