I was in pain for months barely able to do more than laying on my side. At age 35 this was my second back surgery for a large herniated disc. My nerve was severely pinched off giving me spasms. I really appreciated his manner and willingness to look at all the options. I had a laminectomy to clear out the damage and makes space for the nerves. I am still recovering, but I have my life back and people do not have to live with this type of pain. I fully recommend Dr. Peelle to anyone, especially those who consider surgery the last resort. He sincerely wants you to get better.

Dr. Peelle did an amazing job with my surgery I had a l4/l5 disk herniation with numbness to my toes. I was in extreme pain and I could barely walk. He did a great job and has excellent bedside manner. 6 weeks later I'm pain free. I cannot thank him and his team enough!

For years I had this pain in my back, off and on at first, but became daily. After seeing several doctors, all wanting to either fuse or disk replacement, I was loosing hope. One of my friend's wife mentioned a doctor she worked with. I decided to give it a shot. In the first appt with him, I could see the difference, he cared more than the other had. Dr. Peelle is the only doctor I have seen that actually seemed concerned, and he offered a better procedure. After doing so research, being nervous about back surgery, I went ahead with Peelle. I have no regrets, several months later I feel so much better. Highly recommended doctor for back pain.

Dr. Peelle is the best. He is caring and spends time with me, and he answers all of my questions. I would absolutely recommend him for anybody have neck/cervical issues. I was in excruciating pain for several weeks. Dr. Peelle did my spinal fusion, and the very next morning, I felt 100% better. I am so very happy we did it and so very grateful to Dr. Peele!

I had a cervical disc replacement done by Dr. Peele. Since the procedure 7 weeks ago, the pain in my arm and neck is gone and my quality of life has increased tremendously! The office staff is really warm and friendly as well.

Mobi-C Surgery went very well. Everything was explained. All of my questions were answered beforehand. For patients eligible for this type of cervical spine surgery, I would definitely recommend Dr. Peelle. He is an expert in his field and also impressively teaches the procedure to other medical professionals across the US. Great experience. I am back to my normal life with relatively few restrictions if any at just 6 weeks after surgery.

Came to Dr. Peelle with terrible nerve pain in my right leg that was causing me great pain. His team was great. I cant say enough good things about my entire experience. The surgery went so much better than anything I could have imagined. I go back to work next week and the pain is completely gone.

I had surgery with Dr Michael Peele 4 1/2 years ago due to an injury at work. At that time he was with Moore Clinic. He told me that on a Ten Scale of seriousness/difficulty my surgery would rate a 1. Simple surgery he said; just go in and get the fragements out of the nerve root and I should be fine. I had the surgery done. At first, my back seemed better, but later learned it was because of the pain medication I was taking. Later, when off the medication, I was left with a numb left foot, a tight left leg from my low back through my left hip, left hamstring, and especially pain in my left calf. To this day, I still have all of these symptons. I have had mulitple steriods shots, attempting to improve my condition, but nothing has worked. Avoid this doctor! Seek out someone who has more experience and find someone who has had surgery similar to your proposed surgery to hear their outcomes. Later, I also met another former patient whose neck was really messed up after surgery with him.

Dr. Peele changed my life. I was born with Spina Bifida and finally my L4 and L5 collapsed and I was slowly becoming unable to walk. The Doc operated on my back and even fixed problems from my Spina Bifida. He fixed me so well, I can stand up straight for the first time in 43 years.

Dr. Peelle is great! I was in extreme back, hip, and leg pain for years. I was referred to Dr. Peelle. After going over the MRI with me, he explained that I needed a L4-L5-S1 fusion. This was a VERY scary surgery for me! After realizing that I couldn't live with the pain anymore, I finally set the date for the surgery. I just had my 3 month checkup since the surgery, and I could not be happier. The pain I had was immediately gone after the surgery....which was amazing! The only minor discomfort I have now is localized surgical pain...which gets better day by day. I am so glad I had the surgery, and I definitely recommend Dr. Peelle! Thank you Dr. Peelle for relieving my pain!! I am a different person now!

Dr. Peelle and his staff were great before, during and after my surgery. It was the best decision I made. I now have a quality of life that I have been missing for over 10 years. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Peelle for anyone suffering from back and leg pain.
