I have had 4 back surgeries by Dr. Tibbs and they have all been successful. He has always explained my options and I have made the decisions. I have been very careful to follow his instructions after my surgeries as this is very important to a successful healing. He spends time with me at my appointments and answers all my questions. I highly recommend him.

in Owasso, OK |
Excellent surgeon first and foremost. I trust his judgment and recommendations.
in Chattanooga, TN |
I saw Dr. Tibbs for pain in my left leg and foot secondary to a catastrophic spinal cord injury in which I broke my neck 4 years earlier. He diagnosed the problem after reviewing MRI's and first recommended a series of epidural injections. These did not alleviate the pain and ultimately we decided on surgery. I experienced almost immediate relief from the pain in my leg/ Throughout, Dr. Tibbs and his staff were professional, friendly and courteous. I could not recommend him more highly.
in Woodward Oklahoma |
I have been a nurse for 21 years and a MVA caused a life altering experience for me. I couldn't have made it these last 5 years without the caring staff and nurses of Dr. Tibbs office and Dr. Tibbs patiently trying to put me back together again. Words cannot express the gratitude. I was blessed my PCP referred me to this wonderful Neurosurgeon!
