What People Say About Dr. Nigel Sparks, MD

Last year I sustained a right intertrochanteric hip fracture and was taken by ambulance to Baptist South, where Dr. Sparks performed an intramedullary gamma nail fixation. He is an excellent surgeon, kind and attentive, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I have been a patient for 3 years. He is excellent, professional and a listening doctor. He helped rehab a knee that was so bad that i thought i would have to give up golf. I followed instructions and completed the rehab. I have completed being a walking scorer for 5 PGA tournaments. That consists of standing and walking over 5 hours. Also, he is a former big ten athlete and understands training. I am also a senior citizen and he is excellent with senior issues.
