L4 L5 fusion in 2008 Best decision I’ve ever made for my back. On no pain meds. I haven’t seen Dr Thomas in over 9yrs. He gave me my quality of life back. Highly recommended.. I climb on roofs everyday for a living too!

Dr. Thomas worked on & replaced 3/4, 5/6 disc in my neck. I was in severe pain. He said my neck was much worse than the MRI or Malogram showed bc of spurs.

He saved my left leg and reduced my pain level to almost none. One orthopedics and 5 neurosurgeons diagnosed me with a tumor and told me I should live with it as long as possible as might be paralyzed if try to go in there. He diagnosed me with a herniated disc far lateral as radiologist kept reading it as a mass. He operated and I was 90% better in a month. I would not be walking at all if he had not done this for me. He is the best diagnostician I have ever seen.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are true professionals. His work on my back solved my many years of back issues immediately. I could not be happier with my care.

I would recommend Dr.Thomas to anyone. Dr. Thomas put me on my feet and gave me my life back. He did a spinal fusion of L4 & L5,removed a disc and replaced it with a cadaver disc. Recovery was rapid and. in 2 weeks I was walking without a walker. At 6 weeks I was driving. I can now go about my life again. Thank you Dr. Thomas. You are the best. Charlen Womack
