He explains everything in terms a patient can Understand. He takes time and listens to your questions and concerns. He is through in what he does for his patients. I would Definitely recommend this Surgeon, if you need surgery on any part of your back. He is a Great Surgeon and one the patient can Always have Confidence in for the surgeryhe does

Dr. Bransford performed a lower back fusion on me. He was very straight forward about the possible risks and what to expect regarding post-surgical pain and discomfort. I has been aprox. 3-4 years since the surgery and I have recovered very well and I am extremely happy with the results.
in Anacortes, WA |
I can only sing praises for Dr. Bransford's skills and professionalism. He skillfully performed surgery on my fractured leg ten years ago and I have not suffered any pain since it healed, and I have been skiing throughout every winter since. I am retired now and am happy to say that I have a season ski pass which I use many times each week. Additionally, he was very kind as he patiently explained the procedure. I am thankful for the positive outcome and so appreciate his skills.
in Kent, WA |
He and his team of highly-skilled surgeons eliminated back pain I had for 35 years. They are top notch. I wish I hadn't waited so long. I highly recommend him.
