Did surgery on my back and when I continued to have back and hip pain he said I needed neck surgery. He did a 3 disk fusion on my neck and the pain in my back and leg is worse. The only thing the surgeries have done is taken away much of my mobility and range of motion. Pain is worse than before surgery. He will not touch me again.
We value all feedback and appreciate you taking the time to review us.

Dr Hodges has performed three surgeries on me. Two on my lower back and the most recent on my neck. Anyone who has back problems will receive excellent care from and his staff from beginning to end. I have recommended him to three family members whom he has helped in making their lives better with the surgery he did. His office staff and PAs are welcoming, helpful and ready to answer any questions a patient may have. I highly recommend Dr. Hodges as a physician and surgeon.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, Dianne.
