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.

I am retired now and am happy to say that I have a season...more

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.
