Just had a anterior cervical decompression and fusion of C6-7, absolutely phenomenal surgeon, I highly would recommend him and I would personally go to no one else.
Dr. Hylton demonstrated ZERO interest in learning anything about my medical history. He approached me with a false assumption of why I was seeking his help. My condition did not match his expectation of why I was referred to see him, and he dismissed my explanations of my symptoms. He was grossly unhelpful, condescending, and a complete waste of my time. I am still seeking answers, and he was not remotely interested in helping me. Period. I would not recommend this charade to anyone.

I would never - for any reason return to this office.

I had surgery on my neck....had full recovery, normal range of movement with no problems or pain. I highly recommend Dr Hylton.
