What People Say About Dr. Stephen Johnson, MD
I could not move my neck at all. Was in extreme pain. Dr. Johnson operated on my neck 8 years ago. Replaced bones and discs 4 thru 7 on my spine. Replaced all of it with titanium. Replaced some of the bones. He saved my life. I recommend Dr Johnson to anyone who needs spinal surgery.

Amazing surgeon. He was not only my Dr when a work related injury happened. But I worked with him for years at SSH. I cared for his patients. And he is the only surgeon I refer my family too. When my daughter needed surgery I couldn't imagine trusting any other neurosurgeon to operate on her.

I am an active female in my 30s who had a microdiscectomy for an L4-L5 disc herniation that had me absolutely crippled. Dr. Johnson was helpful before surgery in counseling me about treatment options, without pressuring me towards surgery. Now after the surgery, my pain is completely gone; I feel...Read More
