Absolutely the best surgeon you could choose. Exceptional skills as a surgeon and very approachable with all my questions. Explained in detail what he needed to do and why. It will be a sad day in neurosurgery when this doctor retires!

I would recommend Dr Hyltont to any of my family and friends. I had c-5/c6 fusion and a c4/c5. He was very professional and very caring Dr. If I have to have another surgery he will be my first pick. Thank you Dr Hylton and your staff is wonderful and friendly.

After my neck surgery, the chronic pain in my neck was gone immediately after the surgery! He is very professional and explained my neck condition to me as no specialist I had seen prior to Dr Hylton.
